I went to a garage sale last weekend and found this lovely silver bowl. It looks like a punch bowl to me. It's so large and pretty. I haven't taken any of the tarnish off of it yet. Haven't dedided what I'm going to do with it. But, I'm going to be setting up at the 15 mile Antique Alley at Cleburne next week. It maybe on one of my tables. That's one of the reasons I have not been blogging, I've been trying to get everything ready. I have already took one van full over to Cleburne and I have the van almost full again. I'm going to take it over Sunday and I'll take the last load when I go to set up the tables on Wed. next week. We will start setting up on Thurs., and sell thru Sunday. I will be on Main street in the 700 block. Hope to see some of you.

Hope everyone has remembered to pray for our country and the families of those lost in the fall of the Twin Towers. This is a sad day for all of us and always will be. I pray that God will bless you and our country.

Nice big catch-all bowl. Love the crazy stool with the purple fringe.
Cleburne...don't know where that is.
I'll go check map quest. And good luck and perfect weather for your next weekend adventure.

Hi Pat, Thanks for visiting my blog and entering my giveaway! I hope to post the pics soon.
I love the silver bowl and love the tarnish, if it were me I'd leave it as is!

LOVE the silver bowl. It is so pretty. Silver is such a pain to polish. I MISSED YOU IN BLOGLAND! Glad I got to see you in person this week. Hope you rest prior to the sale. Those type things are fun but, a LOT of work! Wishing you a great sale & fun visiting with folks during it. ????? if I'll make it by but, I'll try. GOOD LUCK!


Hi Pat. I hope the rain doesn't prevent you from going to the flea market this week. It sure sounds like fun.
The last time I went to the flea market was on 9-1-01 and everyone was running around and screaming in shock. I'll never forget that day.

Hi Pat, The bowl is a punch bowl, I have a tarnished gold one with the cups to go with it. I paid a lot of money for it a long time ago new.

I remembered that terrible day and will never forget it! In the year of 1987 I got married on the day of September 11th and that was the best day of my life!

Enjoy your Day-
