Olde silver...

I love olde silver...

and don't you love how I've spelt old with an 'e'...

it's like Ann...with an 'e'...

so much BETTER.  Are there any LM Montgomery fans out there? Because I am one HUGE Anne fan.

This cup is old and it is dented...but it is a treasure.

My father's baby cup.  Never has the name Ralph looked so elegant...unless, of course, when it is followed by Lauren.

The cup is displayed proudly beside my Anthro mugs and wine corks...and I may or may not get around to polishing it.

I was gifted this gorgeous sterling flatware by my great Aunt...whose last name started with a T...as does my first...

and I use it as much as I can.

This cake stand is my newest olde addition and it cost me a whopping 2.99 at the Salvation Army.

It is silver plate.

The lady at the check-out turned it over and was surprised at the price...saying that the person pricing it must not have realized that it was silver.

I don't know what she wanted me to do but there was this really awkward moment...

and then I paid my 2.99 and left.

Feeling a little guilty...and not.

I mean that's the whole point of "shopping" at the Salvation Army...

to find a buried treasure.
