I love silver for collecting.
I love silver in a white urn.
I love silver with dinner…..but most of all….
…I love stamping silver for wearing.
Each year at Christmas we have a homemade gift exchange. This year I gave my family necklaces created from vintage silver spoons. We simply detached the spoon from the handle, sanded it down and stamped it.
There were many entries this year, including a burlap pillow adorned with tiny, tea-stained cottonballs and a nativity set created out of acorns.
It was a grueling and arduous contest, but in the end….
….I declared myself the winner.
There was no contest.
Who could top a necklace that started out life as a piece of vintage flatware?
So when the tissue and ribbons and wrapping paper were cleared away….I just knew somewhere there would be a mirror ball trophy calling my name…..
….if I could only get the nativity set and the pillow to agree.
