Show Mom how much those memories mean to you. Wouldn't this be an absolutely perfect gift paired with a framed old photo of the two of you in the kitchen ? Or packaged with homemade treats that you made yourself with her passed down recipe? A nice gift too for the new mom just beginning to make those memories with her own little ones.
Each spoon will be unique and silver patterns will vary - each is a genuine vintage silverplated item, most dating from the 1940's to the 1960's. As they have seen many celebrations over the years they will show some gentle signs of wear. I've always felt that the history that they show makes them more interesting and beautiful ( much as it does for antique people ). I hand stamp the sentiment, letter by letter and polish them to a gift giving shine to create what will hopefully become a treasured keepsake and family heirloom.
These are stamped on a tablespoon sized spoon, approx 7 to 7.5 inches - a little larger and perfect for mixing and stirring. As it is genuine antique silverware, it should be hand washed.
Please take a moment to browse the shop .. I offer a growing selection of pieces and always 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 !
