Decorating With Tarnished Silver ~

Decorating | Inspiration

I got a lot of comments and emails on the silver pieces that I incorporated into my Halloween decor this year. 

I picked up all of the pieces at a local thrift store. I say the more tarnished the better!
Here are a few other great ways to use silver in your decor.

I love the tarnished finish next to the beautiful greens. 

Super elegant in your bathroom and great for organizing all those odds and ends.  I think they would be great on a desk filled with pens and pencils.

Again, love it with a little green. 

Perfectly sweet in a floral arrangement.

And I am looking forward to blending the silver into my Christmas decor as well.

Nothing is better than a mint julep cup! As PW would say "It flips my skirt!"

You have completely made me want more. I have a little, but I always think, "I should pick this up while I'm here at the thrift store," but somehow I end up leaving without it. ?? Anyway, you've made me committed after seeing how great it looks.

I just bought my first piece this week at the thrift store. A topless tea server! I have admired the silver I see in so many pictures, this will be my first experiment.

I’m impressed, I have to say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the issue is something that not sufficient individuals are talking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for one thing referring to this. usa online casino
