Sitting in my kitchen drawer is a lovely spoon with the letter "B" on it. I never use it, but I can't bring myself to get rid of it. It's special. My mother-in-law found it at a thrift store and picked it up for me when my husband and I were first married. And although it's a treasured item - there it sits, in the drawer, waiting to be used. What does one do with one spoon? Then I saw these garden markers from little jane st. and these from monkeys always look on Design*Sponge. Lovely!
This got me thinking, "what else can I do with old silverware?" Remember spoon rings and bracelets? They're still around! (I have both a ring and a bracelet given to me from friends and family. They're so pretty - I love them and wear them all the time.) I also love some of the other ideas people have for old silverware. I would so much rather people "reuse" their stuff than have it end up in a landfill. This type of recycling makes me very happy. xo
