Care for Sterling Silver
Every good Southern girl has some sterling silver flatware. Perhaps it was your grandmother's or your great aunt's or even your mama's set. Some girls request sterling flatware on their bridal registry while others comb estate sales to round out their pattern. Caring for your sterling is one of the joys of owning it. It tarnishes easily, so one must pull out the silver polish and polish away! However, there is a neat trick that helps prevent tarnishing. Put one piece of white chalk in your sterling drawer. You will be amazed at how it prevents tarnish. So, what patterns do you all have? Are you an Old Maryland Engraved girl, a Repousse' woman or a Tiffany Audubon Birds lady? Do tell, honey!
