We found this great cubby in North Carolina. Its perfect for fun silver pieces -- tropies, baby cups, even a high school award tray
An old architectural piece is perfect for displaying pieces above a door. I had struggled with a way to not make them look cluttered. Vintage wood to the rescue!
I love the old chippy paint
I love to use vintage silver pieces to hold candes, potpourri and dried flowers. This basket highlights our bathroon, along with vintage perfume bottles and a wonderful painted cabinet.
Silver tray, ribboned candles and a vintage pocket watch

I am totally in love with vintage silver pieces. Talk about patina and character. Candlesticks, trays, baby cups, trophies...They are always on my "find" list for flea market and thrift store shopping. Can't wait to start dressing them up for the holidays.

MimiToria writes: I love tarnished silver too. Fun to see your displays, and my favorite are the wonderful architerctural pieces you've used. We sell a ton of silver items at the French Flea and they are especially wonderful for the Holidays.
