Welcome to Show and Tell Sunday, the china and silver edition, hosted by Analise and Cerri. My house is not one where you'll find matching service for 12.
But tea for two? That we can do. The toast tray, bird napkin ring and silver sugar tongs all were yard sale finds.
The teacup was a gift from a friend who was moving away.
And this one was a gift from a friend who was de-cluttering.
Hope she de-clutters again soon.
The plates peeking out from underneath the saucer came from Nanny, my great-grandmother.
More pieces from Nanny.
Any silver I own is the kind I find at a yard sale. This was a lucky find - 12 monogrammed spoons, and the right monogram.
A few of my butter knives match, too. (Any tarnish you see is a figment of your imagination.)
But mismatched and loved before more often than not is what you'll find at my house.
