Silver Patterns

Although I am not registered nor engaged I have started to collect silver flatware. My wonderful Aunt S started me collecting. She has an amazing silver collection and wanted me to start building my own.

I collect Kirk-Stieff "Old Maryland" Engraved. This pattern was first made in 1936.

Aunt S collects Rose. My sister also chose the Rose pattern for her flatware.

Here is one of the lovely packages from Aunt S.

I am hoping to engrave a "W" on these in the future. I am so happy that I started collecting silver because I not that into china. I would much rather have an amazing silver collection that I can mix with all different dishes.

When it comes to china patterns I am pretty easy to please...I have started collecting Willow Blue and I absolutely love it!

Special thanks to Aunt S for the beautiful silver and for helping me build something very special. xx
