Un Peu de Beauté Pour la Journée ~ Silver


This lovely silver set was given to my husband and I many years ago by his staff for our twenty-fifth anniversary. I have always loved the restrained elegance of it's design. The bud vase I purchase at Jacob Marse, a wonderful florist shop and boutique in Pasadena; I think it adds a nice floral compliment. Here you see it in the kitchen, as I just finished polishing it, but unually it sits on a coffee table in the sitting area of my bedroom...just in case someone wants to share a quiet, intimate, cup of tea in front of a cozy fire.



I hope this adds un peu de beauté pour la journée...a little beauty for the day!

  1. Lovely, Adrienne.

    My mother-in-law has a set like yours that she brings out only during holidays...it's how she makes whatever event we are celebrating more special. She polishes it regularly and takes great care of her set. I'll have to ask her where she bought hers and when.

  15. lovely - it was nice reading about the story behind this gift.
    Wouldn't it be nice to write stories about your favorite gifts & attach the story or hide it inside (if a vase, bowl, box etc) so whoever it is passed to will know how this memorabilia was loved!!??
