Really Thrify Find & Giveaway Reminder

Giveaway  Reminder:  $30 Your Choice Gift Card
 Usually I don’t attend many garage sales since I don’t get out early enough to get anything but the leftovers, or am on my way somewhere and just don’t have time to stop and look.
Looks what I found!! 
A shoebox of Silverplate!!  I grabbed it up quickly since it looked like there could be some really good pieces  among the tarnish and corrosion.  Some even looked as if they had been run over by a trashing machine or dug up in the garden.
Silver 004
There hasn’t been enough time to clean & polish all of them yet, but  moi did clean up a few to show you an example.
Silver 015
   When they are all cleaned up,  I’ll show you more.  Just couldn’t pass up a chance to show these off.
All of that pink reflection is from… I confess, my pajamas!

Now, be sure to check  out my $30.00 Your Choice Gift Card Giveaway…Home Depot or Hobby Lobby.  Stop in and Nannette and Babbette will give you the details.   Just please don’t say that I called them Vintage Thingies.  They would really be upset if they knew.  They're sensitive.
I am linking to the following parties.  Please stop by and thank the gracious hostesses, make some friends and leave some comment love for the hostesses and guests.  We all love comments, don’t we!

  14. I love using silver flatware. I understand that some people don't like using is because it must be polished ~ but stainless is never as pretty. I actually enjoy polishing the silver. Great find!!
