Spoons

‘Have nothing in your home which you do not find useful and/or believe to be beautiful’

Decorating our tree with spoons this past Christmas set me to searching for all my options.

Some were tucked away in lovely hand-embroidered flannel holders,

Do you know the uses for these spoons……..I would love to hear from you!!!
