And the Trophy Goes To.......

One of my newest collections (of which I have many!) is of vintage trophies.  Not only do they tell the story of a victorious day in the life of someone long ago,  they can also serve many uses in their present life while adding a vintage touch to our decor.  Some of my favorite uses for these graceful-shaped, silver-plated loving cups are.........

                                         wine or beverage coolers.

                              hold your napkins and flatware on a buffet table.

                              hold brushes, mirrors and combs on a vanity. vases for your favorite bouquets.

                               containers to hold succulents or other plants.

                             hold kitchen utensils on your kitchen counter. hold tiny brush trees at Christmas.

....... just in a grouping on a silver tray to show off their different shapes and sizes.
