Tarnished Silver


Polishing silver. That's what I did today.

There's something therapeutic and rewarding about rubbing blue goo on metal and making it turn shiny.

I collect spoons so while my mom polished silver for an upcoming gift, I found the tarnished spoons in my collection.

Shown are two spoons of the same type - my American presidents spoons.

So they looked the same before.
What a difference a little work can create.

  1. Pretty, pretty. There's something vaguely miraculous about newly polished silver. Although you really do have to be in the mood to do the polishing! I have a "bachelor teapot" (a small pot that makes enough tea for one person) that looks a million dollars when polished - which, sadly, isn't all that often!

Your words make me grin.
