Old Spoons

I am still rummaging around in my little shop, going through my stash of collected treasures. This old silverplate spoon was at the bottom of a basket and though I passed it up a time or two, I kept going back to it. Finally I decided to do something with it. Painting on it would have been o.k., but I wanted to do something a little different. So, here it is.... a hanging pin cushion. A little piece of antique lace here, a scattering of forget-me-knots there and it is finished. I am thinking it might need a little hang tag. I will mull that over a day or two and see what happens.

So creative...Does your mind ever sleep? LOL! What a perfect addition it would be to a vintage sewing machine.

What a totally ingenious idea! Something really different to do with an antique spoon. I love how your mind and imagination work!! I wish my own would take me to wonderful creations like yours does. :-)

Martha, SO pretty! I love that it hangs. If someone really wanted to use it and not just use it as a decoration, it could easily hang next to where they sew and not even take up table top space. As wall decor goes....shabbily, romantically chic!
