a bit of this, a bit of that

a bit of snow and silver !!!


Hi there,

I hope you are enjoying your day so far!


Today is the third installment of

Silver Sunday

Take some time to visit and you will not be sorry.

All of the lovely participants have

some gorgeous treasures to share.

Beth has added a Mr. Linky

as the list of those who want to share

is huge and this way, everyone can join the fun.

My poor Hydrangea covered in snow...

...oh how I long for the Spring thaw

and the blooms to re-appear

I think I love the vibrant color of this Ivy now

so much better than when it is just green in the summer

One of our many birdhouses

waiting for the snow to melt

and a family to move in

I bought this silver lantern many years ago

and actually forgot about it

as it sit's at the top our landing.

I love the dents and the oil spill

running down the side.

I guess, I really prefer the timeworn silver

to the polished new,

although it all warms my heart...

The picture is of my DL's Mommy

taken many years ago,

it sits in this pretty frame also on the landing

Is this the most awesome silver

bits necklace you have ever seen.

Take a peak at Lemoncoly's Flight of Fancy blog

to see more of Kecia's amazing work.

Whimsical and fun,

she teaches classes all over

and you can sign up here

or you can purchase

many other goodies as well


I also wanted to mention that I will be participating in the 'One World One Heart' Giveaway event beginning January 25th and you can fly the magic carpet until February 15, 2010. There are hundreds of giveaways that will be posted on January 25th....come along for the ride...you will meet some interesting folks and maybe, you'll even win a goodie or two. More on this later....


Have a fabulous day everyone!!

  3. Hello Nerina!

    I'm with you, I'm ready for spring and SUN! We're facing a week of rain, wind and snow in the higher elevations, up to 10 feet!

    Beautiful lantern and photo!!

    I had a wonderful time at the baby shower and was one tired puppy when I got home. It's a three hour drive round trip, LONG day!



  4. Ohhh my mom had a silver lanter like yours, she kept it in the kitchen all the time. I love that necklace, I will have to visit the website and see more! Happy Silver Sunday...

  5. Hello Nerina... everything is so pretty... I especially love your old oil lamp... the little dents make it all the more precious... xoxo Julie Marie

  6. What a pretty post. There is something so lovely about the winter. Even though the plants are all dead, the snow brings them back to life.
    That necklace is fantastic. I must check out her blog. Enjoy the day...julie

  7. Your oil lamp is very nice. So understated. That necklace is wondeful! I'll have to stop over and check it out. Neat post!


  8. I always just see glass oil lanterns. I've never seen a silver one before. Very pretty!!

  9. what a necklace! I love the picture of your mom, how special

  10. Hello Dear Nerina~

    Can you imagine a huge snowstorm, your oil lamp glowing on the table, and a bowl of Mom's soup? I can! Lovely items you're sharing this week ... I've been lucky enough to take a jewelry class from Kecia, she's awesome and a wonderful person!


  11. Love your lantern... what a special find. OWOH sounds like fun I think I will check that out. TFS Have a wonderful Silver Sunday and finally thanks for stopping by.

  12. I love all your silver and you Silver Sunday Blog. All this silver seems to sparkle up our dismal weather.
    Have a wonderful weekend. And thanks for visiting my blog and saying such nice things.

  13. Silver Bells. Where are the Silver Bells?

  14. oh my...that necklace is something else. Happy Silver Sunday :)

  15. I LOVE the old lamp too!!!! Brrr it looks so cold up there. I have made a number of blogging friends from Canada & think it would be wonderful to visit up there. But, I think I better wait until summer! That necklace was very interesting. I am off to check the site. And also, glad to know that Beth is now using linky. Charlene

  16. Spring is coming my friend...my heather bush is in bloom believe it or not! Yahoo. Thank you for all your sweet words you leave on my blog...happy new week to you.xo

  17. The oil lamp is such a treasure. And the frame is so pretty with a pretty lady's picture. Is it spring yet? lol Rosie

  18. I love the timeworm appeal of the lantern. And I got to see Kecia's necklace in person today, it's fabulous!

  19. The photo of the Mother is beautful. Her expression says hello to me. Thanks for sharing.

  20. Snows looks really nice on pictures but I don't think I'd be able to bear it if I would actually experience it :-) I like the frame and the necklace with all those bunch of many different things is very interesting.

    OWOH is already starting on the 25th? I thouht it will start on Feb. Good thing I dropped by your blog. I promised myself last year to that I'll join this year. Now have to think and make something! LOL

    Belated PS! I love roses!


  21. I love your old silver lamp and it looks so pretty next to the pretty silver frame. I also love the old photo in the frame. It's the perfect frame for that photo. It looks cold at your house. We've had an unseasonably warm winter, but are finally getting a little rain which is needed here in So. Cal.

  22. Hi Nerina!

    How have you been? I've been a very poor blogger lately........sorry I haven't been here to visit.

    I love your lantern too! I used to HATE things that weren't perfect, but I've come to ADORE little imperfections.....especially repaired items. It's so sweet to see something that was so loved that they took the time to try to give it a longer life. How special.

    Thanks for the giveaway heads-up.......I think I'll be participating in that one. It's perfect timing, really.....it will fall right on my one year blogaversary. :)


  23. Such winter beauty although I'm all for an early Spring! lol

  24. Hi Nerina,
    Brrrr, that snow looks so cold! Your post is a fun take on Silver Sunday....Your oil lamp is so charming....and that necklace, oh, that necklace!

  25. Lovely silver post and that necklace is super amazing!

    Have a wondeful and blessed week Sweet Friend!

    Love and hugs,

  26. Enjoyed each of these photos and that necklace is amazing. I'm headed over to see more of this unique work....Sarah

  27. HI Nerina
    Well I wish you a speedy spring, although that will result in autumn for me which I am certainly not ready for yet...
