Silver Sunday Happiness!

Hi there blogerettes!  It's time again for Silver Sunday, hosted by Beth, at Gypsy Fish.  Be sure and go there to see all the bling and shine or the tarnished and vintage silver posts.

Found this pretty silver vanity set at a church rummage sale.....
Look at this pretty gift that I received from
Cat, at Writing Out Loud. 
Look at the pretty little silver magic wand on a chain,
isn't it lovely?  And the presentation is awesome.
Love that Cat.  Be sure and visit her blog, you'll love her too.

Get a load of this Silver Wedding Dress, Woohoo!
Happy Silver Sunday !

Your vanity set is stunning and I love the doorknob too. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we lived in a world where we still used such lovely things. Your gift is wonderful. Love the silver key. Hugs, Marty

I love the vanity set. I have an old one as well in gold, but I do love the silver. Love that key necklace too! My wedding dress was very similar to the silver one you show, only in ivory. I don't think I appeared that tall.


Karen said...

OH! MY! GOSH! Look at that dress!
Holy smokes Sissie!

Love all the silver, I used to have a vanity set just like that. I don't know what ever happened to it. Don't you just hate that? I'm having so much fun with the transfers! I will post some pictures sometime this week. I appreciate your help! Marcia

Rebecca said...

Beautiful silver you are showing! That dress is amazing! And I love the silver mirrors.
Blessings to you today, I hope you have a great evening

Sares said...

You always find the prettiest things! Oh to brush my hair with something so pretty instead of a plastic brush from the drugstore. Can you imagine wearing such a fancy dress, you'd feel like Cinderella at the ball! Have a delightful Sunday Sissie!

Maureen said...

Beautiful pieces...including the glass door knob set. Love it!

Cynthia K. said...

Sweet and pretty gift from your friend. The wedding dress is divine - maybe the prettiest one I've seen.

Hi Sissie,

Happy day!

love that wedding dress! Mine was a champagne color (although because it was a taffeta, it looked pretty white in our photos...) When I was shopping for 'the perfect dress' I actually came across a few red ones.. RED. lol.... now that's saying something. (and what it says is not flattering to the bride!)

Linda said...

I have got to start finding church rummage sales! Such wonderful things.

Doni said...

Lovely! Isn't it amazing what you can find out there?? Beautiful picture, thanks for sharing it with us!

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

All your silver is so pretty. I always love those vanity sets, and that little key necklace is wonderful. The dress is absolutely beautiful, what a great idea to post that for Silver Sunday!

Linda K. said...

Isn't that dress gorgeous? My, my, my! I have a vanity set exactly like the one in your photo! HSS!


Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Hello, Sissie! Happy PS and Silver Sunday, too! I have been stalking your past posts tonight trying to catch up with all you've been up to lately. Your dresser set is lovely ~ I think I have the same hand mirror and comb and brush if yours is Godinger.

Love your pic with your pretty new scarf, and dear, I just love your new ruffled shower curtain ~ KEEP IT!!!

Big TX Hugs,
Angelic Accents

Dorthe said...

Hi dear, Sissie

Your silver set is more than beautifull, and the gift, so lovely. The key in chain, are just the cutest ,-I gather it is a necklace?
ANNDDD your door knop,-love it.
Have a wonderfull sunday dear,
sunny smiles, from Denmark
and me.Dorthe--hugs,hugs

Lululiz said...

The mirror, comb and brush set are really lovely. I have a set on my dressing table in the cottage in France and it just looks so delicate and feminine.
I'm afraid I don't have the stick insect figure to wear a dress like that. It is rather gorgeous though, just wouldn't look quite the same on me, lol.

My name is PJ. said...

I love the dressing table set! It's so YOU!!!

But I'm going to stand up and say that, while silver makes for a nice evening gown, as a wedding dress I think it looks dirty. Am I banished from Silver Sunday now? ;)




Jacqueline said...

Sissie...I cannot stay long. I have to get on the phone and call my daughter Kara. She is not engaged but I think her dear mother has found her future wedding dress. Kara would love that silver dress...oooo...laaa...laaa! So different. By the way, those pink and yellow chicks and that pink apron make my heart beat way too fast!!!

Sylvia said...
