Some new vintage finds and makeover next week

I got this at the thrift store for 68 cents! It's metal and in really great shape. I thought it would look cute displayed for Christmas. It looks all campy and homey. It's doesn't take much to make me happy.

I told you I'm obsessed with silver plate. This set is cloudy? I am just getting into silverplate and I am not sure what this is? I have a Williams Rogers set that I got really tarnished and it cleaned up fine. But this set is not stamped and a lot lighter so probably a cheaper version but still silverplate. I scrubbed some of the cloudiness with baking soda and water and it seemed like it came off but it took a lot of elbow grease. The set only cost me $7.00 so I figured I could work on it. Next week I am planning a makeover of my oldest child's room. She is going to the beach for spring break with a friend and their family. While she is gone I am redoing her room. How lucky is she to be lying on the beach while I clean and paint? Anyway, I will be showing before and after how that is going next week. Have a great day!
