Thank goodness for Silver Sunday, because the weather here is gloomy and ugly.  Some pretty Silver is just what we need to sparkle things up a bit.  So be sure and get your Silver on and visit
Beth, the gypsy fish.  She has a list of  participants so go on over there and get some more Silver Sparkle.

Doesn't pink look pretty with silver, ahhhhh, I love it!

A big, yummy silver bowl found at the Thriftique

A sweet silver vase, a silver ball, a mirrored tray and a pair of
baby shoes.  Can you believe that I put one of those
fleur-de-lis thingees on those baby shoes!!

This tray, found for $1.00 at the Thriftique
is a silver tray, however it was so stained that
I gave it a coat of white paint and one of
those thingees....

More pretties....

Well, blogerettes, that's a wrap.

Oh, Oh, I almost forgot to tell you who won
my giveaway!

There were over 200 entries. 
And the winner is.....

Gwendolyn.......A Charming Home
Congratulations Gwen, please send me your address
and your pillow will be on the way!

And the winner is.........Sherry, Country Wings In Phoenix.

Oh, congratulations to the winners! And thank you for giving an extra prize. I've been away, but now, I'm back and able to do a bit of reading.

I love your silver and pink and I just adoooore the fleur-de-lis. You have a real knack for turning things pretty.

And wasn't this exciting that I got to be the first one to post on the winner?

Ooooh, I'm so jealous that someone else won your lovely pillow. Nah! I'm really happy for both of them, but still, just the tinsiest bit jealous.

How do you find such charming treasures? I'm especially fond of the candlestick in the first picture. That setting, together, looks soooooo pretty.

The Apiary said...

Love the big pink candle holder and yes pink looks great with silver.. Makes me feel happy..

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Sissssssiiiiieeeeee Sweetie...
Can you hear me screaming over there at your place? I am doing the Happy Dance with my little feet tonight. My DH came a running to see what in the world was the matter now. I am so thrilled.

I loved the white pillow until I saw this one today. It so had my name on it. Oh thank you, thank you, thank you. I love it. I have the perfect spot for it. It will be so loved I promise you. To me, this pillow says, "Love".
Yes it does.

Oh calm down now, okay. I love what you did with the silver tray. I would have never thought to have painted it white. I am picking up some white paint tomorrow. I have got to have this on hand when the mood strikes me.

Love the fleur-de-lis on the baby shoes. That one is just darling. I am so going to find some of those decals. Love them.

That silver bowl is devine. Oh I can see so many things in that bowl. The fillers are just endless. Some white stuffed hearts with fleur-de-lis, would be yummy seeing as how you have so much pink, silver and white. You might even have a pink one for an element of surprise. Love it. Don't tell me it is going to your booth now. That bowl says, "Sissie".

Before I close, I have to tell you my middle name, Diane. Yep it sure is. Love it.

Have a beautiful evening. I hope you can hear again, after all that screaming that I did.
Much, much love to you sweetie...Sherry

Amy Kinser said...

Sissie, your silver and pink are sooo pretty and I am not really a pink kind of girl. All of your things are so pleasing to the eye.

Good night.

Denise said...

Well, you are a generous sweet heart! All of these wonderful giveaways that you are having. I love your silver goodies that you are showing. I have to say though, that pink mercury glass is one of my favs.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

junkdreams said...

Love your style Sissie!!!! Your post is gorgeous as usual. So sad that I didn't win your beautiful giveaway.
Happy SS!

~ RM said...

Wow, those collections are so pretty. I usualy concider myself a lover of all earthy colors, but this is so refreshing, I think I will have to give pink a try!! ;)
Love the 'thingee', it looks great in the middle of that platter!

alice said...

Sissie, I really love your blog. You pictures are wonderful as well as the "stories". Your mercury glass candel stick s are fab!

GypsyNurse said...

And again, your post is fabulous!

Treasia Stepp said...

Congrats to both of the lovely winners. How sweet of you to decide to choose two winners.

I love the addition you've made to the baby shoes. I also like the painted tray and the addition to it as well. I have a silver tray that is beyond cleaning and has rust on it as well. This could very well be my next project. Thanks for the inspiration for it.

Annesphamily said...

Lucky ladies that won! What pretty prizes. I always like visiting my blogging buddies. Thanks

Sylvia said...

Congratulations to the winners, and your tiny baby shoes are adorable.

Congrats to the winners! For a minute I thought it was me for the heart! Another one coming? oh goodie! Thanks for visiting me at Rustique Gallery! Love, Sherry

Wizard of Was said...

Another beautiful post! I don't normally like silver painted..BUT I must say that the white one with the fluer-de-lis is for sure a head turner! I may have to "borrow' that one! (grin)

Riet said...

Hin Sissie. Congratulations to the winners of those beautiful pillows. Lucky ladies. I love your silver post again today. Pink and silver is also gorgeous. Have a nice Sunday

Leideesognate said...

Congrats for the luckies winners and compliments to you for all!!!

Beansieleigh said...

Sissie, I LOVE all the beautiful pink with the silver.. especially the iridescence of your pretty pink candle holder!.. like carnival glass yes?.. Is that what this is?.. Well, congratulations to Gwendolyn for winning that gorgeous pillow! ~tina

My name is PJ. said...

Congratulations to the winners. Miss Sherry, in particular is going to LOVE that pillow. The only hitch in your whole giveaway process was that you didn't choose me. I don't aim to win many giveaways, but I wanted yours. But don't feel bad or anything, Sissie. Don't let it trouble you in the least. After weeks of therapy, I'm sure I will learn how to cope with the pain and rejection. And If I don't learn to cope, please pay me no mind. You are not responsible for my world coming crashing down on me. (And all because you didn't choose my name.....)

~Tonja~ said...

Sweet Blessings....

Congratulations to the lucky winners of your fabulous giveaway! Sherry is such a sweetie, I just adore her blog.

I love pink and silver together, in fact, my bedroom lamp is silver and draped in pink beads. Very girlie girl style. You've given me a great idea in that first pic. I also have a pewter candelabra in my bedroom and now I'm going to switch out the white candles for PINK!

Hi Sissy
All your silver is just beautifull... and so is you give away, very generous
Blessings today!

Sherrie said...

Okay, I can't believe that you put a fleur de lis on a baby shoe. I love it! Although, you may have a fleur de lis addiction. The first step is admitting the problem...... You always bring a smile.

Oh Sissie,

Your silver and pink is absolutely gorgeous! I love how you are beautifying the world one fleur de lis at a time! Congrats to the winners, what very lucky ladies!!
