When I got it home I added an old silver rose necklace to give it just a little pazazz.
Added a few silk flowers...
And it was done.

I found this old silver plated pitcher at a thrift store this weekend for $2. By some people's standard (CERTAINLY not mine!) it was pretty sad looking. It was tarnished, scratched and blotchy - all the things that make my heart just skip a beat! Especially at that price!

Great little pitcher, I like the jewlery you added. I wanted to buy some silver after seeing all the great stuff on here, but did not score today. Lezee Posted: 12:57 am on January 3rd

I bought 40 spoon and forks for ten cents apiece the other day at GW and I thought I was in heaven (they will make great feet and hands for my little guys)!!! With the amount of us junkers popping up as of late, soon TarnX will be a product of the past!!!!

LOVE the little touch (necklace) you added to the looks like it was there from day one. gailmarie Posted: 3:38 pm on January 2nd
