Today is Steve and my anniversary.
I love silver and always pick up a silver bowl or tray I see at thrift stores.   I like to put candy in them and sit on the side table or anywhere really.  They brighten up a spot and I like it when silver even turns a dark blue color from not cleaning.   I think the patina is so pretty.

Steve surprised me with a vintage tea and coffee set,  like I said I am always admiring them in the antique shops.

A sweet card to throw me off, and it didn't work.

See,  it brightens an other wise blah and not so bright area. I know the grand girls will want to have tea now.  I will serve them some green tea with little tea cakes.
Thank you Steve,  I love my vintage set VERY MUCH!!
