Gold and Silver

Today I have a few photos to share,
of golden glamor and sterling silver.

First a golden warm setting of pottery.
Needs a scattering of autumn leaves and
a few pumpkins don't you think.

And I see on the other end of the room
a velvety golden sofa...
to continue those
after dinner conversations.


Then I have silver...shiny, cool and sleek.
And to continue those conversations
around old literature...
a silver sofa laden with cushions.

Or maybe a mixture of the two. As in the one above
with the lush golden ottoman or below
which is a bit more formal
silver and gold.

Do you have a favorite?
Are you a golden gal or a silver sister?

Speaking of golden...
Susan's tablescapes are always over the top.
And this week she has consulted
Monsieur Ecureuil.
(you'd be a nut to miss it!)
Not to mention all the other participants of
showcasing their wonders.

Love the warm gold. That pottery is stunning. Finally back from my travels and getting my head above water so that I can start blogging again.

All of the pictures are just gorgeous. I love all the gold and silver, and the dishes are stunning. Such pretty rooms. I am a silver and gold girl. I just can't choose one or the other. Hugs, Marty

Your pictures are so always have great ones! I have never stopped loving gold and now, I think it's coming around again. {I like silver too!} I hired a decorator and she wanted to change all my gold tone fixtures to silver. I'm so glad I stood my ground!

I'm definately not a golden girl... so that leaves me with silver... except I prefer platinum.. which is better than silver in all the good ways! :)

Make mine platinum!

You know you hit on something Candy about being gold or silver girl, and I'm getting kind of confused. You know what I just need more room to have both. I have always been a gold girl, in fact I had every serving piece in gold. I still like my gold, but now I'm leaning towards silver... It just goes on and on with decorating. Sometimes I could just go crazy, because I really do like EVERYTHING... just about.

I love the golden set of dinnerware. Who produces it? I would love to purchase it. Thanks!
