~Hammered Aluminum~

I had no idea that I would one day have a collection of hammered aluminum pieces. It all started when my sister changed her decorating style and ask me if I wanted the few pieces that she had…I said sure and now I have about a dozen pieces. I did some research and found that these pieces are from the 1930’s, 1940’s, and 1950’s.

Here is the first piece that my sister gave me…it is hanging in the dining room.


These next photos are of my newest pieces that I got for Christmas from my blogging friend, Cheryl.

A small dish…with a flowered handle.


The bottom side is just as cute as the top side…


I saw one just like it listed on Etsy for $25.00. Thinking that maybe I should put a little fabric heart in this dish. I have it displayed on top of an old wood box…wanted it up higher so the that flower on the bottom was visible.


The other piece she gave me is a bigger tray…


Saw this one on Etsy too…for $22.00.


Thank you, Cheryl, for these beautiful pieces…I love them! Cheryl also made me the little mouse that sits in the white saucer. He is holding my word for 2013…

~SIMPLIFY~…I so want a more simple farmhouse style and less clutter in my decorating.


And I love how the hammered aluminum pieces look with my white pitchers too.


Until next time…….         blessings, Cindy
