Hi Darlins,

      I hope this summer you’ve had at least a few
      scoops of ice cream or gelato! 
      The only thing better than ice cream is….enjoing it from a beautiful silver spoon!!

      What if using silver more often was actuallly beneficial in maintaining it’s elegant polish.?
      Gently hand wash and dry using a soft cloth it’s a must, 
      it helps to eliminate the amount of harsh chemicals needed to keep them polished.
      Tarnish occurs when silver is exposed to air for long periods and non use.
      I like to store a few pieces close by in this white wood box in our kitchen.

      I believe these beautiful pieces are meant to be used.

      My larger sets are in silver cloth.
      This box gets alot of attention!

      Guests ask, what’s in the white box? 
      A Perfect fit in the repurposed glass cabinet.

      My Design tip: Look for something vintage with character to store your silverware in. 
      Line with felt or something soft.  

      A beautiful Summer weekend to you, enjoy a scoop of icecream with a silver spoon!
