Friday Finds: Shine like Catherine Zeta-Jones – with Antique Silver!

Antique German Silver Carriage

Architectural Digest recently wrote about Catherine Zeta-Jones’ love for antique silver!

“Catherine Zeta-Jones knows what she likes—and what she likes is silver. The actress revealed via social media that she has been collecting shiny antique pieces for years … In the photo, Zeta-Jones shows how she turned antique spoons into a work of art by delicately organizing the utensils in a frame, with a silver coffee urn placed below for added shine… ‘I just can’t help myself. I’m addicted to pretty things.’”

I have been collecting silver for years, or as my husband calls it “Catherine’s bric-a-brac.” #StyleByZeta
