This week I will be joining Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal for Silver Sunday. Make sure you stop by to see what others are showing at the silver party!
Back on my December 23rd post, I showed some silver that I didn't know the pattern, but had 2 serving spoons, that I loved. Susan of Between Naps On the Porch e-mailed me with the maker and pattern name, which is International Silver's Frontenac. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! She also warned that the pattern was fairly pricey!...she was not exaggerating! Not to be deterred, I looked on e-Bay and found several pieces. I bid on 6 teaspoons and got them at a price that I never dreamed possible. I just plain lucked out! They were mailed on December 28, 2009, and I finally received them today. I thought for sure they had fallen into a black hole when I didn't get them after a week!
Here are my long awaited teaspoons. I just love this pattern, in fact, I am obsessed with it, which is unusual as I tend to move toward something a lot less ornate! Thank you, thank you, Susan, for knowing the pattern!
I will be checking out a couple antique stores to see if I can find a few more pieces at reasonable prices...I just know I won't get a deal like the teaspoons!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend, y'all!
