Yummy Tarnished Silver and Rust




Sharing a picture of the top of my 1886 pie safe and a antique mirror that has honor above it... I have chosen to have crystal... tarnished silver and mirrored silver balls adoring this wonderful old piece of the past. A touch of aged pages and a pattern tissue poinsettia with a rhinestone brooch for the center has also been tucked in the offering.... My silver glitter stars and sayings have all aged as they state they would do over a period of time... I love the look of time...

I also have taken a picture of a OLD pair of ice skates of the past... I purchased them years ago in a antique shop... I wore similiar ones years ago when I was very young... Mine had old belts to secure them on.. I also had a pair of roller skates that was very similiar... Oh the good old days ... how precious... When I first brought these out to display when Tom and I combined households... Tom said "what in the world are you going to do with those.." Truly loving the look .... I didn't have a clue what his problem was.... The poor man has had to aquire a taste for me and my passions..... ps... gosh ... do you think that is the reason he has hours from 8 to 8 at the golf course or could it be he has his own addictions.... Hum.....
