Something Simple

 


As a toddler, my husband received this silver fork and spoon from his grandparents. His name is engraved on the handles. Rather than let the pieces languish in a drawer, I found a shadowbox, covered the back with coffee-coloured moiré fabric and mounted the cutlery with a little hot glue.

I'm all for simple and this is it. Hanging on the dining room wall next to a framed piece of tatting, this speaks to me of family, of heritage and of beloved people passed into the next life.

Your spoon and fork are so precious. I did the same thing for each of my children with their silverware. Theirs had their name on the handles. I also put a picture of them in the high chair eating spaghetti! Both of them loved it. I love the items made with heirloom stuff!
