Flatware in a box


I have been trying to get a good picture of this for a couple days….different light…..different camera settings….but to no avail. So, I will describe them. This place setting of flatware (I have just 4 other sets) is lightweight and the handles are a hammered metal finish. They are, I’m sure, of no real value except to me. They came from my husband’s mother’s house and I have no idea of their history. What they remind me of is the flatware and dishes my mother would collect when I was little. They were in canisters of oatmeal and some where in boxes of detergent. I always thought it was so much fun when she pulled one out from their hiding place. Anyway, I love them and use them often…..they are precious to me and I am thankful for the memory they conjure up.

Have the Best of Days,

  2. Hi Rosie! I think your flatware is lovely too! What I really like though is the memories you shared and the sense of tradition. I love family heritage & traditions, all the little things like table ware & linens that provoke such treasured memories. Thank you sweetie! Can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to on the sewing machine!
