silver lining....

This post is an ode to the silver lining....

that was once hidden in a drawer and  is now on display in my dining room!


I have all sorts of silver trays, bowls, lids that I have inherited from Andy's family.   
It is the sort of thing that a couple generations ago people used all the time to entertain....
and now they are being repurposed as beautiful wall accents.  why not!  it is beautiful!

What I am also loving about this is the photo display on the little table....
I have always loved old family photos and having them around this space feels
even more appropriate since almost everything in this room was 
inherited from both of our grandparents.

I recently purchased this beautiful vintage photo cube from my friend's Etsy shop

Yep, that is me playing dress up as a little girl on the inside of the cube.....



this cube is beautiful and holds all those treasured family photos.  I love browsing through this little cube seeing the generations of photos... 
My children will be able to see these photos that go back 5 generations. 
Isn't that amazing... I love, love, love it!
