Good morning to all my blog friends!! It is actually 5am here and I am getting ready to leave for my niece's house to paint some more! I am hoping to get the final coat on the walls in the kitchen and living room. I also need to hang the beadboard wallpaper in the kitchen. Then I am done for awhile until the men take out the range hood and finish the plumbing in the kitchen before I can work on the back splash and counter top.
I received my package in the mail that I purchased on ebay. I wanted a silver tea/coffee set but all I have seen were a little to expensive for me. Then I found this set that wasn't in perfect condition but worked for me.
I ended up paying $15 for it with shipping but I am happy. I polished it up with a homemade recipe of boiling water, some baking soda and salt. I may try some silver cleaner to get the rest off later. I think it looks pretty here in my china cabinet! I found the little cow creamer for $2!
I did a little rearranging and not sure if I am completely happy with it yet. Here you can see the gravy boat that my mom has had longer than I can remember! Also the cream color creamer with silver trim that I found for $2!
You can see my mom's platter that she treasured from 1927! Also some Avon Cape Cod pieces. My sister had the complete set and sold most of it on ebay except these three pieces so she gave them to me. There is my last ebay steal of the year at $4.99 for a silver footed creamer!
At night it does make a pretty glow! Watch out or the rooster may start crowing!!
Well, I better get going!! I am planning to take a few pictures of her house this morning to show you the updates so far. It is still pretty much in chaos, but it is coming along!
I am linking this to Jennifer Rizzo's Hook up your Hutch Party!!! Stop by and see the many wonderful hutches!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
