Piggy Banks


The kids piggy banks needed a little polishing on this Silver Sunday.  Long ago, one of my mother's best friends remarked that Sunday was the day she made the rounds to polish her silver.  How coincidental!

We have a Santa which was a baby gift to  our daughter...

an elephant which was a baby gift to our son...

and a  pig which also belongs to our son ...

Enjoy your Silver Sunday!


Thanks for stopping by Applejack Lane!

These money boxes are lovely... and very well polished I might add!! One of the piggies has engraving.. was it a christening present for someone?

Have a great Sunday .. Julie

Thank you so much for your kind comment on my post...I really appreciate your thoughts and encouragement!

I loved your silvery shares. I think the only silver item either of my kiddos received was a silver rattle....and I'm ashamed to say I don't know where it is! I recall packing it when we moved five years ago...but I don't think I've seen it since. I will now be on a mission to find it!

Your tomato soup looked yummy. I think you did a great job improvising with ingredients you had on hand.

LOVE your hubby's old sled and your skates! What a great display!

Hope your weekend is going well. It's cold and rainy in KC today...snow is expected again this week! :( Dana
