Silver Love

Getting ready for the holiday season.
 Gathering some of my silver pieces to give them a must-needed polish.

 Many years ago a friend needed to borrow some of my silver trays for a baby shower. 
Before
 She said she needed 17!  I said "don't be ridiculous! I don't have 17 silver trays."
After
She said "I bet you do". So we waked thru my house and gathered all the trays that I was using in all the rooms and I had 17 to give her!

  4. It's worth having it, isn't it. Nothing impresses like silver and when you can get it at GW or SA like I do, for "nothing" Towle, Reed and Barton, International........why not!!

  8. I've always used Hagerty Silver Foam, as well as some of their other products. It is so good! I apply it with a soft round sponge that I buy from a clay/ceramic supplies store. I've tried others, but I always go back to the Hagerty. Thanks you for sharing your lovely silver pieces and for reminding us to be good stewards of these wonderful treasures. Happy Thanksgiving!
