A few weeks ago, I posted a photo of my everyday silverware drawer on IG. And to my surprise, I shocked a lot of people when I admitted that I use my sterling silver flatware a lot. Contrary to most, I use my silver every. single. day. As in the good stuff.
This drawer holds my sterling silver (Wallace Rose Point) and my Vintage silver plate (Rogers Bros. Vintage). I love both of these patterns so much that I cannot imagine only using them for special occasions. So I use them every day.

And the most shocking part? I put the silver in the dishwasher. All of the time. My grandmother would be shocked! Some may call me foolish but I think it’s too pretty not to enjoy all of the time. And it still looks as good as the day I got it. But what surprised me the most about the reaction to my post about this on Instagram? Lots of people pulled out their silver and started using it again!
