Its all things metallic this week.   Carmi, over at writteninc has posted a superb shot of a shiny train at night, and has challenged us to take anything metallic this week.   

Go over to the link, and see what others have come up with!

I don't have shiny trains round here, but have come up with these:

Mr. G used to collect Old Hall stainless steel ware, which has been going from the 1930's, until about the later years of last century (my, doesn't that sound a long time ago!)   We still have quite a lot on display, including this coffee jug and hot water pot.

Old Hall also did goblets and mugs.   Not very practical for hot liquids and maybe more for presentation purposes, but even so, Cheers!

Away from domestic items, I decided to play around with this!

Do let me know if you visit, I love getting comments - and go and see what others have taken!

I don't need any more shiny trains when you offer such cool stuff. Your last photo is quite creative too! Thanks so much, Gilly.

I see you in that coffee pot!

Practical or not, it is beautiful.
