Silver Sunday

I’ve been trying out different vignettes on the sideboard in my dining room. Trying to be a little more creative.

I purchased this silver bowl at a thrift store

and these silver serving pieces were found at a garage sale.

An ironstone vase

sits atop some old books from 1830’s-1860’s written in German.

A small pedestal silver tray.

More silver serving pieces from the same garage sale.

And I’d like you to meet my “Grandma” doll.

When I was little I used to call her Grandma since she has glasses and gray hair.

I may have to change her name since I had to get reading glasses this year. And I have had gray hair (concealed by hair coloring) since I was 18 years old. I’m not feeling as old as she looks.

Some china (or is it bisque) teeny tiny dolls in one of my MIL’s silver rimmed glasses that she registered for in the 1950’s. They have a metallic taste to them, so we don’t use them too often.

What? You don’t keep dolls in your stemware?

I’m so excited to be participating in my first Silver Sunday over at Gypsy Fish Journal.

Go on over and see what other people have showcased.

Edited – I am also linking to Marty at A Stroll Through Life for her Table Top Tuesday and Courtney at French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.

And look, I was playing around in Picasa today and made a video out of my silver photos! Look out Steven Spielberg, here I come.

    Looks great. The drawer in the background
    looks good back there.

    I also wanted to tell you we had a chipmunk adventure here yesterday. Our “friend” was moving sooooo fast that he ran into something on our deck sooo hard that I could here it and it knock the acorn out of his mouth! :)

    Beautiful use of old silver. I especially love the tiny doll collection. What is the origin of these dolls? They are so neat.
    I loved the video. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. Ginger

    Pam-Love your vignette! Loving all the old silver pieces…and I guess you would call that a “dolling”(darling, get it? Nevermind) display. I have a couple of those little dolls from my mother too. I tie a small silver cord around their necks and hang them on the Christmas tree. Something sad about that, isn’t there?>) hugs-Diana

    Hi Pam,
    I like your nice vignettes with the old books and the silver. That reminds me to old paintings. How very cute are your little bisquit dolls. I guess the Grandma is very seldom. Most dolls look like children or at least very young women. I can imagine that your “Grandma” was an important person in the dollhouse.
    Greetings, Johanna

    Hi Pam, I do like your silver contribution today. I especially love grandma and the other bitty dolls in the wine glass. It all looks great. Maybe you should look for a directors job. Big smile.
    Hugs, Jeanne
