Silver Chalice

I really want one of those vintage silver trophies.
Even a nice reproduction would do.
But so far I haven't been able to find one.
So I got excited when I found this silver plated chalice in an antique shop for $10.00.
Not a trophy, but kind of trophyish looking.
Right?
 
 
 
As you can see, I got super duper creative and stuck a pumpkin in it for Fall. ;)
I am looking forward to changing it out for different holidays and seasons.
I'm sure you'll see it some where in my Christmas decorating.
 
I am SO going up into the attic this weekend and getting the decorations out!
I want to look over what I have and start brain storming decorating ideas.
 
Have a great weekend folks!!
 
p.s. If you live in Texas and have a blog, can you leave me a comment letting me know.
I have started a Texas Blogs Pinterest board and I want to make sure your blog is on there!
Thanks :)

  2. I like those old trophies too but your little find is just as great. I want that arched window you have there, too.

  3. Looks like a trophy just the same! My gal pal collects the loving cups and vintage trophies...we can find them fairly reasonable down South once in a while. Thanx for sharing...visit my "royal blog" sometimes....last 2 posts are on Thanksgiving! Tiffany

  6. Well, that was a good find since it does look like a trophy. How would a little mini poinsettia look in there for Christmas?

  7. I think that chalice looks just like a trophy! I have a reproduction trophy from Antique Farmhouse. They offer them every now and then, so keep your eyes open for them! They are really nice. I need to do the same thing as you and start sorting through my decorations to see what I'm going to use or not. I've got my colorscheme sorted out and some ideas swrily around my head too, but may need to pick up a few items as well. Can't wait to see what you do this year!
