  2. Looks like my dining room- tarnish and all! I use Spode Blue Italian for every day. Beware that not all pieces are made in England. I found a British woman in NC that travels back to England a few times a year and finds original pieces for me. I love my sterling silver too but I must confess that polishing it is my least favorite chore. My grandmother never had a housekeeper but she had a woman who polished her silver once a month for over 30 years and it took 2 days! Now I've inherited that job.

  3. I have polished my silver since I was a child. When I have or had a bad day the silver polish comes out and I polish. It relaxes and calms me, the steady rubbing on of silver polish and the cleaning and buffing can be cathartic.

  4. My grandmother always had pelargoniums growing in the house in winter, a reminder of spring and summer to come, when they would be moved outdoors to pots on the porch.

  5. I just purchased an adorable little salt cellar. I actually prefer it tarnished to polished.
