A Sweet Find
Scavenger Hunt
Remember last week when I was talking about going on a "scavenger hunt" in my house? I was tickled beyond words when I came upon this. I found it in my attic tucked away in a box. I have no memory of where I got it or who it's from! (Old age, y'all;) Anyway, I love silver pieces and I had the perfect place to put it.

This is what it looked like when I found it~ Yuck . . . .

After some "elbow grease" it looks like this, all gleaming and sparkling! I love it~

My cotton balls now have a beautiful new home! I'm wondering what I will find tomorrow;)

I have the same little silver tray, Susan!! What a perfect place to hold your cottonballs!

Karen said...

Susan, can I come look in your attic, too? (hee,hee)
That's a neat new way to display your silver pieces. Love this idea. I have a small silver bowl I'm thinking needs to live in my bathroom.

What a wonderful way to use a piece of silver! You'll be able to enjoy it everyday!

SO pretty... I love little silver trays, too.

I have one that looks almost exactly like that! So pretty!

What a lovely idea, Susan!!! I would never have thought of putting cotton balls on that tray, but they are PERFECT!! They look extra soft against the beautiful silver!
