I hope that everyone is having a relaxing and enjoyable Sunday. Beth at Gypsy Fish is having a Silver Sunday blog party and although I haven't officially joined the party, I thought I would post some silver for today. Maybe, just maybe, next week I'll join the party for real.
A silver jar with lid next to a silver framed photo of my husband's great grandfather.
An unusual purchase from an Indian antiques shop.
A silver tray that sits on a wooden pededstal. The silver framed piece is a joke that a friend gave me. It shows a man who is new to Kuwait and with each passing year, he begins to morph into a camel so that by the time 10 years rolls around, he's totally converted. I think it's funny; my husband doesn't. I've been a camel for 5 years now.
Yesterday was my marathon cleaning spree and boy, do I feel like I ran a marathon. All kinds of muscle aches and pains today. It must be from moving all the furniture in the living room around. I'm always happy when I change things up a bit.
And it probably didn't help that I climbed a ladder and cleaned everything on top of all the cupboards in the kitchen and made room for all my new enamelware.
The kids were banned to their bedroom while I did all the cleaning. They found an old puzzle that my girlfriend had given us oh so many years ago. It's of her son, Andrew, who is now in college, and Yusef when he was about 9 months old. It took awhile, but the boys managed to put it together and I had some puzzle saver glue that I bought years and years ago and never used, so it was put to use yesterday. Now we can get the puzzle framed. I can't believe that 13 years later, we still have all the pieces. Yusef used to play with it when he was little and would scatter them everywhere.
Thursday evening, I finished the trellis scarf that I started the previous week. I've put it here with a brown sweater and old purple and gold broach. I'm happy with the results since it was my first attempt with a new pattern. I will do another in black as it will go with more outfits.
We were back at school today and I must go iron clothes and get uniforms ready for the kids. Wishing you much peace and warmth as your weekend draws to a close. Have a great Monday! Blessings, Tammy
