 Pin It! Tried & True Tuesday # 34

Free Thanksgiving Printable

{and a little tip from me on getting your silverware shiny}

It’s nice to add a little note for those who gather at your Thanksgiving table, isn’t it? Jenn over at Clean & Sensible has created free Thanksgivings printables in two different colors to match your table setting and décor. She gives several design options to dress up your table and remind everyone to Let our Lives be Filled with Thanks and Giving. 

Here is what I did:

Helpful hints:

  • She also offers a cute chalkboard menu for you to fill in with your own cuisine.
  • These printables could also be incorporated with name tags, framed as a gift for each of your guests, or used on simple brown boxes for taking home leftovers. It couldn’t be easier!
  • Above you’ll see I added this printable with one of my porcelain leaves  {originally from Sweet Something Designs} I did a couple of weeks ago. To soften the stark white, plaster leaf, I gave it a quick coat of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Linen.

 Thanks Jenn for the inspiration and printables!

 {And Now, My Little Secret to Shiny Silverware}

Toothpaste!

Just dab a clean soft cloth with toothpaste {any paste brand, but not gel} and thoroughly rub silverware.

You’ll notice the tarnish disappearing and your rag turning black.

You can clean the tops and leave a slight tarnish on the handle if you’d like. That is usually what I like to do. You can see my 65 year old silverware nice and shiny in the first two photos. It’s hard to tell, but I left the handles a bit tarnished. They’re vintage after all!

Follow by handwashing  with a mild dish soap and warm water.

Dry with a clean towel.

It’s fast, easy, and there are no harsh, chemical smells!
