Epergne Heirloom

When my sister came to visit us last week she brought me the most wonderful surprise.  In her car was a box from my Mother's house.  It was just a plain old packing box, but it had the best contents!  It was my Mother's silver epergne.  I can still remember the day my Dad brought it home from the Jewelry Box, which was located in downtown Lexington, Ky.  It was part of an estate that was purchased by the store.  They always had the most interesting pieces of silver and great jewelry too.

So now it sits on my countertop until I can fit the perfect spot for it in my home.  Where do you think I should put this antique in my home?

The hydrangeas are from my courtyard garden at the store. 

I'm participating in My Romantic Home's "Show and Tell Friday".  Be sure and check out this
fun blog party!


We are also joining the blog party at Bargain Hunting with Laurie, "A Few of My Favorite Things Saturday"!

And be sure and check out the Dipity Road blog party "Welcome to Friday- Finding Beauty", where we have a link.

We found another fun blog party too......Happy to Design's Sunday Favorites!


  1. That certainly is romantic and so lovely - your mother had wonderful taste and I'm glad you have it. The flowers are beautiful too.


  2. That is just beautiful, especially with the hydrangeas. Put it someplace you can see it everyday so it can make you smile. So gorgeous!

  3. I have always loved Epergnes even though I don't have any- This one is just gorgeous!! The milk glass ones are so neat too with the individual horns. I am still on the look out for one!

    bee blessed

  4. I had never heard of an epergne! It's beautiful. I have a request...would you please tell me more about the Woodstock Market? Is this anything like the LAKEWOOD antique market that used to be in Atlanta? We used to go there and I was devastated when it closed several yrs. ago. I'm a GA gal too! You can post on my blog or email me at Thanks so much!

  6. Oh what a beautiful epergne. I have a similar one, but not nearly as elegant looking. I love the curvy edges on the holders on yours. Your hydrangeas look beautiful in it. Thank you so much for sharing this beauty for Favorite Things Sat. laurie

  10. My goodness, that is so pretty! I'm sure you will find the perfect spot for it. I would definitely put it in a place where you will enjoy it often. Very beautiful. The hydrangeas are gorgeous! I just found you and became a follower. My little icon has disappeared so I will probably show up as a silhouette.
