Chippy White Paint~Tarnished Silverplate~Favorites








Today I thought I would share with you one of my favorite combinations....Chippy white paint and tarnished silverplate! Everytime I find a piece of silverplate I am always asked, Are you going to clean it, and the answer is always, No, I like it just the way it is! Don't you agree? Only time and the natural elements can create such beauty! I love to display pieces with anything that has chippy paint....my favorite is this old chippy white mantle top that is in my den...an estate sale find for only 50.oo! I love to collect silverplated teapots, trophys, trays and vases. Every weekend that is the one thing that I look for and know I will find at yard sales. Very affordable and fun to collect! 

 Happy Junking for your favorite treasures!~Have a wonderful day!~

I love tarnished silver! I clean some of mine (sometimes), but I also love the aged look that tarnish gives.

Beautiful photos :)
