A classic baby gift and lifelong family heirloom. This spoon is hand stamped with the baby's name and a tiny heart in a classically elegant lowercase font. Perfect for a welcoming gift for the newest family member, or to mark the very special occasion of a baptism or christening.
Please note that the pieces shown are examples of my work. All of the silver that I work with is acquired through antiquing, estate sales, and local auctions. Silver patterns will vary with what treasures I find each week :) I will be happy to provide photos of the patterns available upon request -- but I assure you that each piece and pattern is beautiful. If you have any requests (floral, non-floral, etc..) please leave me a note in the "notes to seller" box during checkout and I will be happy to accommodate.
Each is stamped on an antique demitasse spoon -- a petite vintage silverplate spoon, approximately 4 1/2 inches long. Just perfect for baby :) These are genuine vintage spoons, each over 50 years old, and those years will show in the fine lines and patina unique to each piece. They are polished and hand stamped - each letter being individually hammered into the silver, then finished with a hand tied ribbon and tag. Because they are antiques, they should be cared for with a gentle handwashing and towel dry.
Please take a moment to look through the shop -- I have a growing selection of pieces and welcome custom orders.

I was born old .. not in a Benjamin Button sort of a way, but in a hot tea, old house, wooly sweater sort of a way. I've always appreciated the craftsmanship and beauty in all things old and loved. The way old floors creak when you walk on them and old books smell when you open them.
Antique silver is of course a favorite. The thought that these pieces have been here since long before I have. I wonder at the hands that have held them and the celebrations they have been witness to. I spend weekends trolling estate sales and antique auctions -- not looking for perfect, just looking for beautiful. I love them even more when I can find them a bit neglected and take them home to polish them back to beautiful. It's almost like opening an incredible gift under a simple craft paper wrapping.
I have been stamping jewelry for years and only recently thought to stamp silverware. It is so much more personal and I love that my pieces become quirky valentines, sweet momentos of bigger moments, and family heirlooms.
It has truly brought my loves of antiquing and crafting to one very happy place for me.... thank you for letting me share it with you !
