While making cabinet handles for my kitchen, I came across and purchased many different pieces of old silverware. Each design is so pretty that I decided to show a few to you.
Some of them are actually worn away with use. It makes you realize that older generations didn't just throw away things as they began to wear or even before they began to wear. They used them and that gives us the beautifully aged pieces to look at and admire today.
I love antiques. I love to dream about the days when they were used. The excitement someone may have felt when they bought them new. The hands that used them, cleaned them. The homes they came from. It always makes me feel quiet and at peace to think of these things, almost a hazy dream.
Anyway, here we go.
I also like to see things that were once used commonly, but are no longer.
I hope you enjoyed looking at some of these with me.
