Silver Sunday

I will join Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal for Silver Sunday. Thank you for hosting this fun meme, Beth. If you haven't checked out all the other silver posts, you may want to!

Several months ago my sweet friend, Shari, in Phoenix, sent me a beautiful silverplated tea/coffee service. It is Reed and Barton 5600 Regent. I have had the large footed silver tray and sugar scuttle for quite some time. Together they are quite beautiful.

Thanks for visiting today. Have a great week!

Love your tea service! Beautiful!
I just recently got a sugar scuttle too, but it's not a matching piece with my tea and coffee service.
Thanks for sharing!

What fun, a Sunday surprise from the tablescape lady. I have some silver pieces in the hutch that people tell me I could clean but I look that old, primitive look. If you ever come here again, bet you could have fun doing a tablescape/silverscape with my pieces. love, bbb

I am jealous of your silver. I know that I have my MIL packed away need to unpack and polish.
Happy Valentine.
