Vintage Thursday Thingie: Silver Dish

This is a sillver-plated serving dish from my MIL. It has been used alot and so I always use it with a plain glass plate as you can see how scratched it is but you can also see how lovely and elegant it is.
These are simple embroidered napkins, also from my dear, dearly missed MIL. (Wish I could iron better! :)

Lovely items. I love embroidered 'anything'. I guess my sad iron would come in handy with those napkins.

I love it when treasures of Vintage things are from those we love....
Try ironing your napkins when they are damp...thats what my Noni always did!

Nice pieces of history! As far as ironing goes, maybe you could try the 'sad irons' I read about in another posting! :) Thanks for sharing these!

Oh Miri, those embroidered napkins have got to be the sweetest I've ever seen. Truly they are precious.

Great Dish and I LOVE THE napkins, guess it is an embroidery thing. :)

Miri, I have a soft spot for vintage silver. Yours is lovely. When I press linens, I have a spray bottle of water handy. A light mist then press with a steam iron. Then I give them a light spritz of spray starch and press again.

Such pretty things. Special too. Looks like you got some hints for the ironing. Hope they help.

Be thankful all of us for electric irons! How did my Mum iron our clothes so beautifully with flatirons? I think ironing is seriously over-rated, the napkins are loevley anyway!
