It's been said that necessity is the mother of invention, so when I picked up this absolutely gorgeous swirly, Sheridan Silver candelabra at an estate sale yesterday, I knew that I'd better get inventive.
Why, you ask?
Broken. But still beautiful, just like my sweet little Frozen Charlotte head perched atop it.
Hey, I'm a junker, ain't no way I'm gonna let a little something like that stand between me and a badazz, tarnished silver treasure!
So I cozied up to my buddy Jason who is on the estate sale staff, and acting all cool and non-interested, I nonchalantly asked "How much for the broken old candelabra in the garage"?
I think he was on to me, so he said with a twinkle in his eye,
"For you? $4.50!"
I may solder the broken piece back on, or I may not...I happen to think Charlotte looks pretty killer right where she is.
To see everyone else's scrumptious silver, head on over to Beth (not Betty!) at
for Silver Sunday, going on now through February 7th.
And the lovely Jill at
is having a wonderful, Silver Sunday themed giveaway over at her blog!
She's offering one lucky winner one of her silver blackboard trays next Sunday, the 17th.
I've got my entry in, you be sure to do the same!
