Chimes of Spoons & Forks

The other night, I had a dream that I moved into a gigantic, old, worn out Victorian house where the rooms never stop appearing. I see so much details in my dreams and in this house I looked up and saw it shimmer - a big chandelier made of spoons. I had to make it, or a smaller scale of it, so I made this flatware wind-chime to remind me - you can live in your Dreams. Click on "Read More" on how I made it.

Easter Cupcakes

I had fun making these colorful cupcakes for my family's Easter party tomorrow! All you need to do is take a white cake and separate as many color's as you want - then color each bowl a color of your choice with food coloring. After that, you use a spoon and drop some colored cake mix into the paper cups as shone below. You can also make any size cake using this method. Do not stir. Bake following the cake's directions and that's it!

Flashback Friday!

Pretty in French Pink

Easter is getting close and all the pretty pastel bunny colors are in the show - reminding me of this French Provincial dresser and night stand I did for Bella, with her help of course! AND can you believe I got this set for FREE through Freecycle! Actually, I have gotten many awesome items from Freecycle and every city has one, even a few Freescycle groups you can join - just check out the link I provided. I also Freecycle everything I don't want or need any longer to keep the give and take dynamic going ;)

Spoon Ring of Roses

Sometimes I just get a thought stuck into my head and just like that I wanted a spoon ring. It is said that during the 17th century England, servants would steal silver flatware from their employer and crafted them into wedding bands for their beloved. Such an act of love from beautifully carved spoons indeed make lovely symbols of commitment for richer or in this case, the poor. In the 60's, these sweet rings made their rounds again but this time for fashionable old world reasons as oppose to the poor man's ring.

Of course I got one with roses from The Plantation pattern flatware originally from 1881 and reproduced, as in this ring, in 1948 from Dzines Laura. Their are many gorgeous patterns you will come across from antique, vintage and new - I may have to get a few.
