Silvery religious medals...



A silver slipper...from an earlier post...



The silver we saw in Florence, Italy... back in September!

The silver knives are utterly adorable. They are so intriciate. They could be fruit knives. Ah well, what does it matter what they were meant for, now they are there to be admired.
