The Elegance of Silver and Vintage Lace

Welcome Everyone! I hope you've had a beautiful weekend. With our temperatures warming up, and the lane clear, the shop was busy. Now, time for a visit with all of you. :-)) I'm linking up today with Beth from over at The Gypsy Fish Journal. She has graciously started this new meme. I just discovered it the other day, so glad I did. I am amazed at all the beautiful pieces of silver you blogger's have, each used in their own unique way. Now, I don't have a lot of silver, would love to, but what I do have, I love and cherish.

I chose to put together 2 vignettes using two different pieces of silver. I chose the letter holder in the first vignette. I think the crowning glory would be to have vintage post cards in the holder. Aaaahhhh... a dream for another day.
Or the addition of a quill pen. Come to think of it, I used to have one.. hmmmmm I feel a mission coming on. :-))
The second piece is the ink well. Anyway that's what I call it. If any of you know the actual "true" name I would love to hear from you.

I can also see this used as a candle holder, can't you?

I hope you enjoyed my "little" contribution to Silver Sunday. I'm so glad you popped in to say hello. Beth, thank you for hosting this wonderful event. I've had a ball. Be sure to swing over to Beth's at The Gypsy Fish Journal for a full list of those participating. I'll see you there...
