Silver Linings and Silver Spoons

We are drawn to shiny, glittery things, fascinated by the light reflections:

We especially like shiny silver and go to great length to decorate ourselves with it:

Even Mother Nature splashes us with silver lights:

And not only human hair turns silver as it ages:

Our architectural structures like to sparkle and glitter, too:

And our artists are drawn to silvery expressions:

There are those who are born with a silver spoon in their mouth.
Some are destined for the silver screen.
I’ll take a silver dollar any day over a dollar bill.
Who is on their way to a silver medal in Russia?
Some couples will be celebrating their Silver anniversary this year.
My favorite tree from the time I was a child was the Silver Birch.
Do you prefer a silver fish or a silver fox?
One of my nieces is a silver smith.
I hope I’ll never need silver nitrate but I won’t mind a silver tongue.
If I just had a silver bullet for all the problems in the world…
Oh, and don’t forget to watch the “Silver Linings Playbook!”
