Tuesday Treasure #7

Tuesday Treasure is a blogfun activity hosted by Clare and this week I am continuing with my 'tea' theme of yesterday.

This is a silver bowl which I inherited from my mum - there was two of them and my eldest brother has this one's older brother!

Mum always used these at Christmas and filled them with special chocolates and nuts.

I use this all the time - it is our sugar bowl and I love it very much.

I did do a bit of a 'silver-polish' yesterday so she is looking especially pretty

She matches well with the teapot.... and the pretty cups

(pity I don't take sugar in my tea!)

Hope you have a wonderful treasure filled Tuesday

Come join us HERE
