Vintage Tennis Trophy
A few months ago at my favorite lil thrift store I spied this silver-plated footed trophy. I actually didn't buy it right away because it was 4.99 and I wasn't sure about it. I am generally not a big spender on my treasures. lol obviously.
It waited for me a whole week until I decided it was meant to be mine. Deep down I knew it wanted to come home with me. How sad that someone won this tennis trophy back in 1972 and now it sat tarnished, scratched and unloved in the thrift store. But alas it is mine now.
It's a rather large heavy piece. It now occupies the place of honor on my lil silver shelf. I wonder who it originally belonged to? I tried looking up the tennis event but found nothing :( This piece for now will keep his history to himself, at least until I can find out more...
This week I am participating in Second Time Around Tuesday hosted by Dianne at A Picture Is Worth A 1000 Words. So head on over and join the fun, there is wonderful eye candy to be seen and enjoyed.
