Vintage Spoons Repurposed

What a weekend! The Ruffles & Rust show was a blast!
I so appreciate YOU - my friends, customers, and fellow vendors who stopped by.
Thank you, thank you!
Now, it's time to unload the trailer... but not much to unload for which I'm thankful.
I had fresh flowers in my space, and took these pictures to show an example of the hand stamped spoons I sold.
Have you seen hand stamped spoons? They've been popular for awhile now.
I love 'em. I think they are so cute tied to a mason jar, stuck in a plant, or attached to a gift.
My intentions were to make a few myself to sell, but I struck out terribly on my own.
My hubby ended up completing the my project.
Ahem he loves that - ha!
I was not good at flattening out the spoons. I tried doing that with a hammer, but it just wasn't working for me. Thankfully, hubby came along and saved the day. He has has a hydraulic metal press and that did the job perfectly.
Next came the hand stamping. Sheesh! That was harder for me to do than I thought, too - ha! I ruined a few spoons because I didn't hit the stamp hard enough.... Oh well, hubby saved the day again. Have I mentioned that he. is. the. best!
I'm already gathering up more silverplated spoons to stamp.
I think they're too great not to have on hand.

Dolies! Not A Grandma Thing Anymore

It's crunch time!
Less than 10 days until Ruffles & Rust - whoa!
I made a few pillows while I was burning the midnight oil last night.
I'm loving the doily pillow. Oh how I'd love to learn how to crochet one day....
....in my spare time - ha!

Felt Flower Pillow

I spotted a cute pillow on the cover of this magazine, at the grocery store the other day.
Great inspiration. I knew I had to make one of my own!I created my own flowers out of cashmere remnants I had laying around.
I added rhinestone buttons to the centers of the lilies.
You can never have too much sparkle!
Overall, I love how it turned out, but it took awhile to make all the flowers!

Getting Some Halloween Out

Yay! It's time for Halloween decorations to come out of storage.

I think I enjoy unpacking my Halloween stuff as much as I enjoy having it out, and displayed all month long.
