A Silver Sunday Vignette as The Countdown Continues

I have this vintage-style silver tray I purchased at Michael's a few years ago that has evolved into my seasonal living room table top vignette. I didn't buy it with that in mind. It was one of those 'oooh that's pretty, don't know what I'll do with it, but I'll find someplace to put it" purchases. How funny that it's now a focal point! The candelabra is an antique store find that I dress up with a touch of greenery this time of year. The silver teapot is from a church rummage sale. I perched a gold glittery bird on top. A couple of silvery garlands are strewn throughout.
An old textile spool with glittered lace, pheasant salt and pepper shakers (estate sale find) and other assorted bits and pieces are thrown in. The Christmas topiaries are from my days (actually 11 years!) of selling Christmas Around The World. Anyone remember them?
I'm linked with Silver Sunday at Gypsy Fish where you'll find links to all sorts of wonderful Silver Sunday bloggers.

How about pinking it up a little with the next Coundown to Christmas matchbox from Tracy, of Sunset 97
I love the retro look and pink/green color combo. And the sugared earrings are adorable!

Love your Micheal's find. Isn't it funny how things you have no plans for end up being so perfect? Serendipity is a wonderful thing!
