Vintage silver is so pretty and I love tarnished, aged pieces. To me the imperfections are what give each piece character and a sense of history. They are one of the easiest items to come across at thrift shops, flea markets and antique shops and are relatively inexpensive.

A pretty way to display silver pieces is to group them together as a collection or to display one larger piece, creating a beautiful focal point.

  7. One of the things that I love so much about decorating is that you can make almost anything work. I love silver and will take it anyway...polished to a bright sheen is so beautiful but there is something haunting and mysterious about a good tarnished piece.

  29. I really love tarnished silver, too. When my Mom saw my tarnished silver in my hutch she mentioned that I should polish it and she looked at me funny when I said I like it tarnished, too :)
    Have a fabulous day!

  44. Nice. Vintage pieces like these never go out of style, really. And I almost thought that you sell these stuffs. If you have an Etsy or other business, it will be great if you will sell the same items.
