SPARKLY, SHINY SILVER ..........

Silver is not just for Christmas !

We can use it in our homes ..........

In our baking ..........
When we eat ..........

We can wear it .......... don't you think that this jacket is me ? If anyone has got a spare one, email me and I'll send you my address. I'll pay the postage !!!! ..........

Use it in the kitchen ..........

Sit on it ..........

Do ballet in it ..........

Surround ourselves in the bath with it ..........

Sit on it (again !!) ..........

Drive in it ..........

Teeter on it ..........

Do the washing in it !!!! .......... and remember ..........


Go out there and behave a little bit badly !!!!
Jackie

  2. Again, what is there not to love about this post? Does that mean I have your permission to behave badly?? That jacket is so you. I could so see you in it! I wish I had one laying around to send you cause you would make it even more fabulous looking!

  12. Lovely Jackie - a bit of silver sparkle is a necessity - there's nothing I love more than a beautifully laid table with silver cutlery - nothing I like less than cleaning it though! Hope you are having a fun week x

  13. So Jackie, are you going to be able to bail me out in case I behave a little TOO badly? lol
    As usual I am totally entertained by this Shimmering post, my dear!
    Ah yes, the jacket is sooo you!

  18. Do you know what I really dislike? Silver cars. That's except yours, Jacqueline, if you happen to have a silver car. Yours is very special. But that car in the image, that's a wow. I may have to revise my sweeping dismissal of all silver cars. I'll be too busy tying my cutlery in neat little beribboned bundles to make history, but I don't doubt that you will! Please mention me from the podium.

  19. You're so cute Jackie!! I'm not much of a gold girl...I really prefer silver, so this was a perfect post for me!!! Gorgeous as always sweetie!

  20. Bonjour Jackie,
    I really like silver too, that mirror over the fireplace and the one over the bathtub are both gorgeous - though I'm not sure of the view from the last one...
    As for that sweet little ring, are you trying to lead all of us astray dear jackie? Well, let's go make some history!
    Happy week to you!

  21. A friend of mine wanted gold fish for a birthday, but knowing that she is mad on greys and whites, I got her white goldfish and put silver and grey stones in the bottom.
    They look cute.
    Lovely post babe. Thanks for all your comments.
    Much love

  22. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. What a superb theme. I do love silver and yes I can imagine you in that jacket. I liked it from the moment I first saw it. Good luck. If I see one, I'll let you know first.

    What inspires you to think up these beautiful ideas?

  28. Geez Jackie....
    I have to loosen up a bit. I just may have to hop a plane and have you teach me how to misbehave and not feel guilty! Loving the silver and shimmer....really love that kitchen silver! :)

  30. Hi Jackie
    Certainly a sparkly start to my day... I'd love that first armchair.. perhaps you could send that over my way along with the cutlery to add to my own little bundles of silver love. .. Actually while you're at it, send the mirrors too. Meanwhile I'll dust off my reckless behavior, I'm sure it's around here somewhere .... Lovely images as usual... xx Julie

  31. Jackie - Love the photos, love everything silver - the flatware with the old linen and even though I could wear the killer heels for only about 20 minutes, I'd buy them just to see them in my closet everyday.

    I'm going to find you a jacket like that - get ready.

  32. Silver really has surpassed gold hasn't it and I love it. I feel like I need to get my best silver gown and trapes around in the foggy woods now....oh what will George think of me then??? I'll just blame it on you!!!

    i just remembered I went one Halloween as the ice queen....it was nothing as wonderful as that outfit the lovely model is wearing but it was fun. I think my friends thought I was strange!:))

    xox.....Carole

  35. I have been quite a naughty girl, Jackie...that's the only reason I can think why I have so much silver in my hair. Totally worth it!

    I've always quite liked the idea of a silver swizzle stick from Tiffany's that I would keep upon my person at all times. One never knows when the need to stir a drink beguilingly will arise. Also, very handy for picking spinach out of teeth...or so I'm told.

    Lovely post as always Jackie....may all your clouds have silver linings. Meredy xo.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Okay I'll go out and misbehave and then I'll say ... but Jac's told me to!!

    That bath is awesome and totally do the laundry in that dress, how glam!

    Really beautiful post darling,
    xoxo

    I don't know HOW I missed your top hat post....you are brilliant! Only a lady of style such as yourself could wear it and it suits you perfectly. I love all the other photos too.....wonderful!!!!

    Have a great week :) xo

Such gorgeous photos and so much beauty. Hope your week is going well and your not behaving too good? Hugs to you xoxo deb

  63. TA very much for your visit...Yes, I am from the same era, the fab 60's !! I was only a teenager dreaming of England and longing for the fashion and the bands. Living in small town USA, I had to make do with sewing my own clothes to get the look. When I saw Hard Days Night, the next day I wore one of my fathers ties and got laughed at ridiciously..we don't wear school uniform ties here..But I loved the "London Look" and still do..You were so lucky to have really lived right where it was happening..Imagine..shopping at Biba as a teen and being able to remember it now.. Thanks for taking me back and actually keeping it alive in the now. Cynthia Wolff

  67. Jackie, I just can't seem to help myself! You fill my life with such sunshine I gave you the Sunshine Award again! I forgot about the first one...an age thing.. You do not need to do anything, we can consider it a merged event. Just want you to know I was thinking of you and want to thank you for all your lovely comments.
