What a great way to surprise the new grandmother with the big news ! Take her out to coffee, lunch, ice cream, slip this spoon into her napkin .... and make a memory of the moment that she learns about her new little grandbaby. The heirloom spoon is a keeper as is the message imprinted on it. A forever reminder of this moment.
If you would prefer a name other than grandma, please let me know. As they are made to order, I will be happy to stamp it with whatever name the new grandmother would prefer to be called.
Each spoon will be unique as each is a vintage item, polished and stamped by hand. Handle styles may vary as these are antiques and are dependent upon what wonderful pieces I find each weekend. The spoons themselves will not be "perfect" they are antiques and may show minor imperfections. Antique silver pieces are much like antique people - their history is part of what makes them beautiful.
The spoon measures approximately 6 inches and is mid-century vintage silverplate. 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 silver 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 !
