finding treasures...

Among the treasures found while packing up the family home with my dear Dad, was this sweet collection of silver spoons. They belonged to my Grandmother - and have travelled the world.  There is a date on one - I imagine it must be the date of my mother's Christening, just under one month after she was born.  I know for sure that spoon has been to England, Kenya, New Zealand, Brunei and Australia.  I wonder who has held them; what stories were told as sweet treats were eaten...imagine the secrets they could share!

Do you think that little one is a forget-me-not?  How appropriate...

And the pinking shears - what a fabulous find, still in their original packaging (that alone intrigues me).  I'm not able to sew (oh, how I wish I could), but I love these!  They just need to be sharpened and polished up and they really will be just like new!
