It's Remembrance Day here in Canada, a day on which we pay tribute to the members of the Canadian Armed Forces who have died in the line of duty, and also to those who have served our country in the name of peace. I wrote a little bit about my own family's experience with war in this post.
Remembrance Day 2014 comes shortly after the recent tragedies that saw (my fellow Hamiltonian) Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent killed in their own country. We will remember them today along with all the others who have given their lives. Peace to you, my friends.
Thank you to everybody who has faithfully linked up to Vintage Bliss Tuesdays. What a great group of thrift store-loving peeps, I have to say. Today I'm sharing a look at yet another bounty of items I got from my mom. (It seems impossible at this point, but somehow I still come away regularly with a few vintage items from her home.)
Actually this mix of silver-plated and stainless steel cutlery was intended for my brother's fiancee. Mom thought it would help her as she hosted her family members for Thanksgiving. Fortunately for me, Liz didn't want to polish all these silver-plated spoons, knives and forks. And I was looking for cutlery for my food photos.
I'll probably polish the cutlery one day, but for now I like the well-used, vintage look for my photographs. When the time does come though, does anybody have tips for cleaning up silver-plated cutlery quickly?
Have you inherited any vintage goods recently?
