Tarnished Black!

I love the look of things that have naturally evolved from their original finish into the tarnished, darkened patina of age! I have a few pieces of old silver that I have no intention of polishing~~ I love them just the way they are! Like this sweet little cup, perhaps belonged to a child long ago.....
and the sugar bowl missing it's mate...I think more lovely blackend than shiny! I think they call this "poor man's silver"!
So much more charm with the look of everyday use!

I went to a great sale this morning and found these amazing whisks!!! A little hard to tell but they are huge, and I love their look of age!

Found all these little tin items too~~~aged to perfection!

Showing off my tarnished blacks with the French Cupboard for Vintage Black Friday! Check out all the others sharing in the fun and celebrating the love of black!

  6. I agree with you about the great look of tarnished items. When it's natural, it's so--full of personality, isn't it?

  7. I, too, love to leave some of my silver pieces tarnished. I have silverware that I love to use on my tablescapes but some people have a hard time using them that way. I love them. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Hi Julie,
    I'm likin' the picture on the wall of the little girl feeding ducks. That's black, too :) Happy VBF~
