Things I Love Today: Polishing Silver

I love polishing silver! Last night, I scrubbed a stack of platters, vases, spoons and silver Easter baskets with good old Wright's polish for an hour. It's such a satisfying, easy chore. Napkin ironing is another great one in the same category.

Maybe I could have a job in Martha's prop room?

I love this one. This and ironing hankies. Ironing hankies is my fave.

I *need* to polish my silver (I almost said iron my silver, which is less pressing. Get it? Pressing. Moving on..)

But, we found this amazing antique/ junk shop on the way to Russian River this weekend that you guys would both ADORE. We need to figure out how to go visit it. Seriously, you would adore (So would you, Amanda!)

The shop had silver, of course, which is the tie in. I can't even say how magical it was...

I know what you mean Emily! I like polishing jewelry and to avoid using toxic products, I use good ol toothpaste (I've used one by JASON before) and it works fantastically!
