As you can see, I gravitate towards pieces with handles and spouts. I added a couple of my ironstone pitchers to lighten it up and a piece of white hardanger that was in with some of my grandmother's things - I like to think that she did the intricate needlework herself.
Then I polished up some silver butter knives and coffee spoons and nestled them in three of the creamers. I know that there are many who prefer the natural tarnished look for their silver; but I was raised by a mother who polished the silver until it was gleaming before the table was set for company, and I still find pleasure in its polished beauty.
I trust that you have brought out some of your favorite things to fill the empty spaces and bring a happy smile to your face!
Till next time...
