June Silver Sunday!

Welcome to the June edition of Silver Sunday! It's amazing how time is flying by and how quickly the silver mercury is rising with each day as we get closer and closer to my favorite time of year. Summertime!
Not only because I love my summer vacation but because it's flea season! No, not doggy fleas, jukin' fleas!
Being off in the summer enables me to feed my Thursday flea addiction...hooray!
This is just the time of year I start to get a little crazy...time to gather new collections.  Me, like I'm sure of a lot of you, can't just seem to buy one of something.  "You never know when you might need another".  
So here are few of the silver oddments and whimsies I've collected simply because I had to have more than one.
Monopoly hats.....why have one when you can have dozens?
Lovely zinc canning jar lids....yes, I will surely need these some day!
 A dozen sugar bowls and creamers without lids....very important when one has aspirations of making funky pin cushions.
Don't forget to visit all the other silver Sunday posts and Have yourself a wonderful Silver Sunday....

  15. Hi Beth,

    thanks so much for hosting this silver-party, I really enjoy to be part of it.

    And I always enjoy to see, what other persons collect. Isn't that nice - Monopoly hats. We don't have them in Germany, but they look so cute. This type of hat is in Germany also a symbol for luck in the New Year because chimney sweepers used to whear this hats. It is a german superstition that the black chimney sweaper brings luck. So we use this hats as symbold for luck on 31.12. every year. I wish you so much luck as you have Monopoly hats. And thank you for your assistance with my link in.
    Greetings, Johanna
