Silver Spoons


Remember all those Merchant Ivory and Jane Austen films where the heroine unfolds a continuous flourish of elegant wax sealed envelopes, and props their elegant script up on her even more elegant mantel?? 



We're getting invitations to weddings, mostly. Reminders to save the date. But then there are assorted graduation parties, and hopefully, a few teas and cotillions thrown in for good measure. :o)   It's time for the silver polish!



Of course you don't have to do that anymore. Rumpled linens and tarnished silver are all de rigeur at present. But yes! Mais oui! By all means dig it all out.



For I am here to tell you, if you haven't discovered it yet, that silver is one of the ways to happiness.



It's the sun you can stare into forever without going blind! All moonlit by candlelight! An etched garden than never fades!



If you use it every day you NEVER have to polish it. 


 Splatter a bit of glint around a simple supper and see how high the pleasure quotient rises. It needn't be a holiday.



But if you need an incentive, we have a holiday right around the corner. 



And if your mantel isn't overloaded with invitations yet, there's still time. Send a few invites out on the social tide and see what comes sailing back again!



My ivory handled pen knife ready for a quick Respondez s'il vous plait.




Happy White Wednesday!
Ciao! for now!
