All that glitters is not gold.
Everyone has a task on their 'to do' list which they consistently push to the bottom. On my list it's polishing silver. I love silver and I want it to shine. But for some reason I resist committing time to such a monotonous task. But as we've all heard it said, "No pain, no gain". So yesterday I undertook what has become in recent years a semi-annual chore.
Here is part of my inventory~
Look at this Deed Box! Vintage Pottery Barn showing its age.
These pieces are daunting and yet there's more! I have had all of this PB silver for almost 20 years. I can't believe how fast the years fly by. At Christmas I think the passage of time becomes the most evident, as we seem to mark time with holiday memories.
"Through the years we all will be together, if the fates allow..."
This lyric always makes me cry.
Well, more on point, I worked and I worked and I'm here to tell you that my home is positively sparkling!
How about a little preview?
My set of PB reindeer, a gift from my mom and dad, have been Christmas fixtures upon the mantle for nearly two decades.
Stocking holders all in a row.
Look at the Deed Box now! And, check out my silver plated mirrored coffee table! I found it at a model home sale for about $20. What was I thinking? Now I have a table to polish too!
Wow! Suddenly I'm feeling a Christmas glow! I hope you are too!
Until we meet again~
