Nostalgic Art

Oh wait a minute, I'm a Grandma!
I guess I will use my own silverware.  My first set when I got married, it's old and has lots of memories. I used it as a newlywed, a young mother and still as a grandma.  The forks, knives, and spoons sit in a jar on my counter.  Some pieces are missing but this silverware still is the go to when buttering toast or having a bowl of cereal.

Another "EFI" Project

    1. I'm not sure how you would attach the tea cup without hurting it. Maybe from a ribbon tied to the handle would be cute. I would definitely have it on display. By itself or under a cloche.

    2. I love both of those ideas! I just need to keep it away from my curious children:)
      Thanks!
