The thrill of the..

hunt and a quick fashion peek...I found this cool vintage tray at The Todd Farm Flea Market the weekend before last! Now I just need to polish the brass! Any magic tricks on how to do this please send them my way.

{i'll be working on my window treatments very soon, they are currently bare}

was also digging these looks from Chris Benz's Spring 2011 collection !

BRASSO, it's amazing! Gob it on, let it sit, and then scrub it with a toothbrush. Hope that helps!

I love everything about that tray...from the brass to the handle detail to the pop of color on the inside. Jealous.

Julie..what an awesome find..gorgeous vintage tray. I think nothing works better than Brasso to clean brass...Ive never used anything else..so Im sorry that I cant recommend some other household cleaning product..but I know Brasso brings it back to brand spanking new :)

A product called "Brasso" works great. Rub it on and off like silver polish. Love your blog!

I like the patina on the tray! Whenever I see shiny brass, I want to oxidize it.

I like the patina too, but I may take a bit off...Brasso it is. Thank you.

Brasso, or you can use the discarded peel of a lemon! It works wonders and smells great!

I have two of those trays made in California, I love them. One is green round in perfect shape bright brass someone must have cleaned it before. And I bought a red rectangle like yours with a lot of patina which I like better. Good find.

Use Twinkle Copper cleaner - cleans brass like a charm!

1/2 water & 1/2 vinegar works for my brass. I was surprise to see your white dolphin pitcher too. I have a pair in tourquoise. Only, living in the midwest, they don't quite look the part of my decor.

Tx for this post,
