Hi Ho Silver (Plate)!

Hello, Dear Ones! I've been missing you and trying to make a few visits! But I'm still in the closets painting! I'm tired. I'm sore - I know, I'm outta shape! :) But closets are getting pretty and soon I'll be going through all of the clothes and purging some more!

I didn't want you to forget about me so I'm showing you some stuff I did back in the fall!

A few years back I found a few pieces of silver at a garage sale and purchased them. Well, they're silver plate, but that's okay! I had put them away and had forgotten all about them. While prowling around looking for other things ~ I found these!

I should have taken a before picture! But I had my muscle on and forgot! Well, you can see the tarnish on the wine bucket at the top!

Here's a great view of the tarnish. You can see the difference from the shined up bottom part from the tarnished top part.

Cute little handles.


Now sparkly and all shined up! Gloriness!

Here's my little ice bucket. It was in pretty sad shape when I bought it and I just did the best I could, but I still love it! Can you love little silver plated ice buckets in pretty bad shape? Well, you bet your little ice cube trays you can! :)

I don't know if I would ever use this one without a liner. The inside is glass and it's crackled - very olden! Or maybe just mistreated! :(

The handles on the ice bucket are really very pretty, don't you think?

Quite a little olden pair, don't you think? Now I do believe I've rubbed and buffed and shined and polished all I want to for some time!


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Hi Ho Silver

Come in this house
Stop all of that yakety yak
Come in this house woman
Stop all of your yakety yak
A stop your yakin' woman
You're nothing but an alley cat

You talk all day
You talk about this and that
You talk all day woman
You're talkin' 'bout this and that
Don't make me nervous
I'm holding a baseball bat
A honey hush-you're talking to me
A honey hush-you're talking to
I'm gonna warn you honey
I'm takin' no more of this stuff

Well hi ho-a-hi ho silver
Hi-ho,a-hi-ho silver
Hi-ho,a-hi-ho silver
Hi-ho,a-hi ho silver
Hi-ho, hi ho silver tonight keeping it up
Talkin' 'bout this and that
You come on in here woman
Talkin' 'bout this and that
Don't make me nervous
I'm holding a baseball bat

A honey hush
(honey, honey, honey, honey, honey)
You're talking too
(honey, honey, honey, honey, honey)
Honey, honey, honey, honey hush
(honey, honey, honey, honey, honey)
You're talkin' too
Stop that yakin', I'm taking no more of your stuff
Oh hi ho-a-hi ho silver
Hi-ho,a-hi-ho silver
Hi-ho,a-hi-ho silver
Hi-ho,a-hi ho silver
Hi-ho silver-hi ho silver again
