Personally, I prefer my silver tarnished.
Whether it be jewelry or old trays and candlesticks.
I have had a stack of beautiful silver trays scattered
about my house stacked one on top of the other on various table tops.
On the hunt for just what to do with them , I am
inspiration by the photos I have found of silver trays on walls.
This is my new plan! I just need to go to the hardware store &
get some heavy duty plate hangers.
Note: none of the above are polished - I love that.
