Spring Formal

Hi Everyone
Happy Friday

 this sterling silver monogrammed cup that says
Spring Formal

Our daughter is going to her Sorority Spring Formal tonight 
I miss her and I miss the days when she and all of her friends
were here at the house getting ready and taking pictures together
It was so much fun 
Thinking of her spring formal made me think of this little cup

Look at the details 
the lions and the little silver rings
Can you imagine receiving this at a spring formal
When I found this silver cup I started to imagine who it belonged
to and the romantic story 
 that went with it
It sure was a sweet souvenir
I  added a few  pink roses from the garden it almost looks like a corsage
sitting in it
Enjoy the weekend

  6. Awesome! I would sell my mother-in-laws farm for that (just teasing--I love her)--but, 1953?? Pretty darn vintage (I was born that year and darn vintage-proud of it)--Gorgeous piece. Have a great weekend.

  7. Happy Pink Saturday, Pam. I enjoyed your post. Yes, it is a curious day dream as to who, what, when and where that silver treasure came about. The pinks are perfect with it. Enjoyed reading your profile too. Happy Pinks, Jenn

  8. Wow, so beautiful!!!!!!

    Happy Pink Saturday!


  9. I know hat you mean Pam. Tonight is prom night at our high school and I've been thinking about when our daughter was still at home and going to prom, all the fun of getting ready and all the anticipation. Time moves to fast.

  10. Wow Pam this is soooo beautiful!!


  11. This is gorgeous!
    Old trophies and old loving cups like this are on the top of my must find list!
    I want to add them to my collection of trophies that were my grandfather's and dad's!

  12. I love it. I am always on the lookout for vintage monogrammed silver.

  13. Hi Pam, Thank you so much for sharing this at my party! I love vintage silver and especially if it is engraved. This is a wonderful piece!

  14. Pam, what a sweet treasure! How lucky to find this piece of engraved silver. ~ Sarah

  15. Pam, that sweet Silver cup filled with lovely flowers is just beautiful... I can't even imagine someone getting rid of something like that and I'm so glad it has found an appreciate Home with you! I like to imagine the stories that go with or behind my Found Treasures too... I have a very fertile imagination so my version probably tops the real back end story. *winks*

  24. Beautiful silver cup! Especially with the pink roses. The cup is from the Sand Point Naval Air Station in Seattle, which served from 1920-1970. Oh, I can imagine all the pretty dressed that must have been worn that night in '53...
