Tuesday Treasures

I have a bit of a thing about vintage silver (plated of course- who could afford the real thing!) and today I am sharing a couple of special items. They are special for different reasons; the salad servers because they were a real bargain at Lifeline and I love the handles. The teaspoons and cake server were given to me by my late mother-in-law. They had been given to her as gifts at a bridal shower around 1946 and she had never used them. I have had them for about 30 years and I do use them. Wish I had kept the box the spoons came in though.
Don't forget to pop over to Melody's to see who else is sharing today. Just click the link at the side.
PS The birthday girl loved her quilt.

  5. Beautiful treasure Carolyn. I'm glad you use your lovely teaspoons and I'm sure the cake lifter makes it all taste sweeter.
