March Silver Sunday...

Welcome to another Silver Sunday, hosted by Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal. I want to share my sweet silver Nantucket Basket dish, along with my set of silver Nantucket Basket napkin rings.

Reminiscent of October days spent with loved ones on an island rich in history and quaintness. These silver pieces remind me of Candle House, The Wharf, Felicite', a family wedding, a family vacation, beef stew prepared by the Liljegren women for our men returning from a day of fishing on the cold sea. Unlike the women of old Nantucket, we awaited their return from the warmth of the kitchen, rather than the windy, widow's walk at the top of the house.

Make a cup of tea, relax and then click here to go to Gypsy Fish Journal and her list of Silver Sunday participants. We only gather once a month now, and personally, I can't wait to see the other silver goodness on display today!

Alright. I've heard you teasing for another peek at my party preparations. I always try to oblige, so here you go. One more quick peek. (Well, actually, you can click on the image and get a really good gander!)

I'm setting the table for tomorrow's party. (For those of you who don't know yet...March 15th is Brynwood's First Birthday Celebration. It's going to be an Alice In Wonderland theme!) You're all invited to join me tomorrow! Grab your fancy hat and I'll bring the rest! Don't you just love a party? I can hardly wait.
