Yesterday, was rainy and dark and a good day to get out my paternal grandmothers silver....(we have our oldest Texas granddaughter with us) Some of the pieces had been out and had turned dark and she remembered something she had seen somewhere....toothpaste removes tarnish quickly and, she went to work. Needless to say, we have to make a run to the store today for lots of toothpaste as I have a few, large pieces of silver that need a good polishing, too! Bless her heart! She is looking for projects and I am afraid she might be getting bored with her much older than 20 grandparents!

While she was scrubbing away, at the kitchen sink, I added some pretty vintage linens to my open kitchen cupboards and am so satisfied with the "look".

I am not getting much done, but that is OK, as I will probably never have our Jacque here like this again. She is taking a break from college this semester, she is a junior, and she just learned she passed the exam to enter Federal Law Enforcement. We are so grateful she wanted to come and "hang out" with us for a bit. She is wonderful company as she is so smart and so interested in everything and we all have fascinating conversations!

Wishing you all a happy day!

Jil - if you have a chance check out Lindas (Chic n Antique) pillows on ebay - they are southern belles and I think you will like them. She does really pretty ones too.
