Zinc Is The Word





Zinc is more commonly used in Europe as a reference in color and metal. You rarely hear it used in the States. 

These are very common sites to see. Little baking tins used for candles and planters in zinc. Or cute baskets for your cutlery or even clothes pins. 

But if you want to call it Grey, that's fine too. Either way it's a universal color with universal uses.

Zinc is good. Gray doesn't quite make it with these cute things. I loved the silverware in the basket. I am also learning that I really like silver plate even though there was I time I longed for real silverware. You sound like a very busy lady. :)
