He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young

Cleaning Tarnished Silver

I may or may not have a unhealthy love for coffee. My mom knows this and bought me a nice set of silver tea spoons. Little did I realize how quickly silver tarnishes if you don't take care of it. Whoops! 
 Of course Pinterest saved me again when I found this link from Crafted Love...
boiling water
glass or plastic dish
aluminum foil
baking soda
plastic or wooden spoon

Boil water in a kettle or pot...
While heating, wrinkle up a sheet of aluminum foil and line the bottom of your dish.
Lay your silver, single layer, on the foil and sprinkle heavily with baking soda. 
Once the water boils, pour it over your silver to cover.
You'll start to notice bubbles and and a sulfuric smell...

Swish the items around, flipping them to make sure it all touches the foil and watch it begin to shine!
Now, drain and rinse with water and wipe with a cloth.
Seriously THAT.IS.IT!
