OHHHH! That Silver!
This blog is dedicated to my dear friends back in London who spend a lot of time rummaging through the silver stalls at antique markets in search of that interesting and usually very tarnished piece of precious silver. While my sister was visiting me in Boston I thought it would be the perfect time to have a polishing party and share memories of our mother and our grandmother (Gekie) and how they cursed the "polishing of the silver" too! The bottom of each piece is stamped with a number and a seal that reads Barbours P. CO. International Co. Hand Chased.......Tell me it's worth a fortune! I keep it all high on a shelf where it gathers dust but gleams with great family memories. I even found this really cute silver lamp that makes a great night light for Haley when she tries to sneak in late and not wake anyone!
