What an absolutely vintage and thoughtful gift for the new mom. A milestone that she only sees once in a lifetime -- the year she became a mother.
Each antique silver spoon is hand stamped with Mommy ( or whatever name she loves best) and the date that she earned that title :). The heirloom spoon is a keeper as is the message imprinted on it. A reminder each morning of how much she's adored and of her most worthwhile endeavor.
Each spoon will be unique as each is a vintage item, polished and stamped by hand. No two are alike and none will ever be "perfect" as each is a bit of artistic endeavor. I work with vintage silverplate and the handle styles vary. The pieces will not look new, they will look loved. Each is in very good condition, freshly cleaned and polished but will show a little bit of wear from the years that they have aged. All are beautiful :)
The teaspoon measures 6 inches. As it is genuine antique silverware, it should be hand washed.
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 !
