|Berggren tile, Libbey wheat pitcher, brass reindeer|
Four little things found their way home with us last week.
(but we spied many more)
Kicking myself over the Libbey wheat print pitcher - I left a couple of the matching glasses on the shelf at the Goodwill recently - Doh! (as Homer Simpson would say)
And where do you sit on the polish/don't polish of metalware?
This little reindeer was ultra-tarnished - I like shiny so I polished it.
But, there's a whole hoot of folks that love the patina'd look.
Should I have left it alone?
(I could leave it for a year or so to retarnish after all!!)
|Fire King Georges Briard silver Persian Garden print casserole|
This, however, was a definite "polish me" candidate.
That silver was BLACK and unappealing for foodware.
It cleaned up easily and prettily - so lace-like in person.
And is in wonderful condition!
(So often those patterns are scratched and abraded with use)
Did you make it out and about to thrifts last week?
What did you find?
