We found one garage sale with lots of crafting supplies. After the fun I had making the Vintage Music Wreath project, I decided I wanted to make more wreaths. I found three unused wreath forms. I also bought a large stack of felt, a bag of buttons, dominoes, bottle brush Christmas trees, tiny pinecones, ribbon, sewing patterns and a vintage Christmas tree topper. There are a lot of project possibilities hidden in these supplies.
I also found an inexpensive box full of silver-plate and silver-toned serving pieces. It was a box of mis-matched silver-toned pieces that I can use for projects. Other than the two Oneida Community, Ltd. pieces, everything else is cheap enough so that I can craft with them and not feel like I'm destroying someone's good silver.
Here is the bottom of the Oneida Community, Ltd. Repousse silver bowl. The Gala pattern is of my favorite flower, the poppy. This pattern was produced before 1935.
There were three round, mis-matched silver plates in this collection. I combined them with two short silver candle sticks I found at the swapmeet and created a three-tiered display.
I also found some lace for art projects. There is a lovely piece of lace with hearts.
I like the look of silver. I guess I should start polishing. Maybe I like the look of tarnished silver even better.
