Baling and polishing the silver

I love this time of year when all the tractors are running around, slashing and baling the paddocks, those machines are amazing, I wish I had one.

I found this silver rose bowl at a local antique store.  It looked a bit sad, I polished it up a bit on Christmas Day would you believe, well before guests arrived and after the big present event,  very soothing, destroyed a few tea towels too.

this is how it turned out, isn't it lovely.  I celebrated with a bunch of roses from the garden. I love it.  Enjoy your holidays everyone.x


  1. What a brilliant transformation... worth a few destroyed tea towels I think :o)
    LOVE those roses from the garden, just beautiful xo

  2. Did't it come up beautifully. What a lovely find.

  3. What a great find, its absolutely gorgeous x

  4. That bowl is beautiful! Keep it under lock and key - I want to steal it.

  5. That's gorgeous! The roses look just beautiful in it. What a great find and purchase. Enjoy it! Ange

  6. I have been coveting a rose bowl like yours for ages. I thought Father Christmas might provide, but, alas, no. Maybe I need to go to some antique shops instead. I might get lucky like you! Wishing you a fabulous New Year. x Sharon

    Your roses are to die for.
    Best wishes for the new year.

  10. Antique shops are so fab when you get a one off find like this gorgeous rose bowl. You did a great job reviving it.

    Stunning roses.
