Hi Alison!
I saw a comment you left on Jeanne's blog, Dream, Create, Inspire. It was a post about tarnished silver. I read your comment about having redone your dresser/hutch with some tarnished silver pieces and I had to check your blog out to see if you had posted any photos! I couldn't find any in a quick kind of search, so I'm wondering if you could clear up a couple of questions for me?

Were you talking about using tarnished hardware on the piece, or setting some tarnished decorative pieces of silver on top of your dresser/hutch? If it's the hardware you're talking about, would you be able to post a picture of it? I don't know, your comment just struck me some way, and I loved the idea of tarnished hardware on a piece of shabby chic furniture! I guess it's just something I never gave thought to or noticed before!

Your grandkids are beautiful! And I love that you made your granddaughter an apron & gave her baking-related accessories for her birthday! Have you been giving her some lessons as well? She looked tickled pink with that apron on!

Well, it's after midnight here, so I'm going to bed! Nice to meet you! Leslie Anne
