I am joining Debbie at http://www.debbie-debbiedoos for her Newbie Party.Stop by and visit to meet some new bloggers. I picked up this jar recently at a house sale, I think it is called a cracker jar. I thought it would be something different to make a flower arrangement in. The silver was totally black and to tell you the truth, I didn't even think it was silver. But, it polished up nicely, so maybe I will use it for crackers after all.
