Silver Trays

While organizing my "junk" last week, I realized, if I really like something it shouldn't be tossed into a drawer and forgotten. So I took down the three black and white plates that match my canisters and replaced them with something that meant more to me. Oh, and I am including the grime I found. People actually think I am quite OCD and persnickety. I am actually a bit 44 working full time with an active 10 and 8 year old....I may HAVE been OCD and persnickety but, now I just don't have time. When you see what I found behind the plates you'll see.

My vintage silver trays....replacing the white and black plates that don't really mean much to me
Cute plates, but I am not attached and they have no vintage value...

And people think I have OCD. Maybe it stands for, Oh So Dirty?

The top one was even worse. Are you kidding me? The more you have, the more you have to constantly clean. Would you believe that during the school year I have housekeeping coming in twice a week. Imagine this place without that! Yikes.

I am liking the silver trays. I am glad they aren't in the drawer.  I do want to polish them all  though. From what I have seen the shabbier the better...but I have a hard letting them get to that state.

Rut roo. What might you ask am I doing at Good Will a day after I have organized  my cupboards and come clean about my collections (hoarding...whatever)??? I have to just say, "SHHHH!!!" you totally know where I am coming from. It was only $4.99. No patina and pretty.

Added her to the bottom, realizing she's just like the first....

She's not quite straight......I'll get it right.  I would never have taken a crooked picture if I had OCD, right? It's growing on me. My husband of course was not convince any of this made sense. Oh well. Never stopped me before.


  1. Love what you have done with the trays! I have been wanting to do that too! Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Thanks Rechelle!! You were my inspiration! I really need to invest in a good camera. I don't think my walls are as bright as they look in the photos. It looks better in real life :)


Thanks for your feedback! It makes my day getting comments!
