I scored two lovely treasures. I found a beautiful tea pot and a lovely silver tray for the holidays! My source for many hunts is Etsy and you can easily follow me there.
From Falcon and Finch came both: The tea pot looked like nothing much upon first seeing it, but I loved the shape.
This is what I'd gotten:
And the result after some really hard polishing: On the bottom it reads 1883
B. Rogers Comp. silver on copper 1200. And silver shiny it is now. The two dark parts on the handle seem to be bakelite.
The Reed and Barton silver tray was already beautiful, I just gave it a once over and voila! Perfectly ready for coming parties!
A little green next to it....
Right at my window!
And here one more look at the tray and tea pot!
I just love it!
PS: Don't forget to check out my House and Living part, where my latest post is all about recommendations for children's and teen books! Think holidays!
Have a wonderful last October weekend! Halloween is coming too!
