Silver & color


Silver is a precious metal which my mother liked so much. She used to fill the tables 
with silver decorative items which certainly added an elegant feel to the living room. 
However, silver by itself icold and stern and I think colors make it softer and lighter.
All the objects I’m showing you are from 925% silver, almost all of them new pieces.
 Some are signed by Armaos, a Greek silverware manufactorer. 
They represent a particular moment in my life, my marriage, 
the birth of my daughter, family gifts, travels …

Thank you so much for being here!
I wish you happy, sunny days!


  1. I have silver jewelry, but no silver items in our house. You have a good combination of silver and color!

    Hugs, Ingrid

  2. Lovely and really charming! Love the way you've picked up nature in all objects. Birds, angels, flowers, butterflies, pattern, shells.....
    You certainly have an eye and the feel for natural beauty.


    sorry for my English...grrrh....!

  3. I love silver too. You have wonderful objects. I love your candle holder and coffee pots most of all. Very awesome.
    Warm regards

  6. Wat een prachtige zilveren ornamenten heb je in huis, helemaal leuk als je er zoveel herinneringen aan hebt.
    En met kleur is het prachtig.

    Het wordt mooi weer, laten we genieten!

  20. Wow, Olympia ! So many beautiful treasures ... Such flowers I've never seen - also a silver-plated snail's never met * gg *. I also love silver - some old parts I inherited from my mother-in-law and bought many things at the flea market. Have a good week - see you soon with a warm greeting,

  21. Ciao Olympia! Che belle foto! Mi piace tanto l'argenteria, specialmente su una bella tavola, in un giorno speciale. l'argento è un bellissimo metallo.
    Le tue foto sono molto belle e tutti i "pezzi" che hai mostrato, li vorrei. Che belli!

    Come vedi, ti ho scritto in Italiano, perchè so che ti piace tanto e anche perchè so che lo capisci benissimo!



  22. Grazie Anna,
    Si, e vero che preferisco l'italiano, mi sento piu in aggio che con l'inglese.Sono contenta quando passi dal mio blog, tua presenza mi fa veramente un gran piacere!A risentirci!
