I just am popping in quickly today to show some of my silverware that I polished up the other day. I love how shiny it all is. So so pretty and bright.
My mum would be proud!
Everything in her house was spotless and well cared for.
My place... not so much.
So pretty - can you believe it was like this before?
Although I like it both tarnished and shiny. It took me years before I was ready to polish this tea pot as I loved the old patina. Which way do you prefer your silver? Does anybody regularly polish silver these days or are we all too buys for these old fashioned household chores? I have lovely memories of polishing silver with my mum on Saturday afternoons. Maybe it wasn't that often - just when we needed some pocket money or something!
I probably have polished it all wrong - I used Silvo which I know a lot of people say is too strong. I bought all these pieces at markets over the years so I don't really mind the scratches and dings. If you have a good way of cleaning that's more gentle. I'd love to hear from you.
Have a lovely day.
