So here we are on another VBF (and for those of you that don't know the lingo.....check out Jill's hilarious post, that's Vintage Black Friday) I decided to pay tribute to patina. Black tarnished hotel silver is soooo yummy. Worn, time tested, patina is what gives all vintage lovelies character and substance. So, an ode to tarnish! Embrace the wear and know it's just a sign that something has been loved and handled over time. Could it have been polished and nurtured by someone famous or of historic importace? Did your great grandmother's mother drink her 4 o'clock tea while relaxing in the garden from it? Think about it.... Happy VBF!
