A Spoonful of Sugar


I would like to thank all of you who have written such deeply felt letters about my angel book~Yes, I truly have experienced miracles in my own life and so have many other people in this special "blogging family" of ours....and I am so happy to know that you have been touched by those stories.


I have just completed making this altered silver spoon for a dear friend of mine...I love vintage silver and when my husband was up north this year, I asked him to find some for me--he did!! But, the reason I wanted some was so that I could alter them...

After adhering a graphic to it, I sprinkled it with sugar~Not really. It's glitter!

And then, of course, seam binding and pink satin roses were added. I hope that it will warm my friend's heart.

Merry Christmas, Everyone! Oh, and my giveaway is still in full-swing until 11 p.m. Saturday night....I will announce the winner on Christmas Day! If you would like to enter, there is still time. Just click HERE.

XO
Cindy

Hello dear friend,

This is simply gorgeous!!! I just picked up a ton of this type of silver and was wondering what to do with it. I've also seen this before, though you have an extra pop or two on yours that makes it even more beautiful! Whoever recieves this "fancy" will be blessed indeed!

Merry Christmas,
Hugs,
Donna

Your decorative spoon is so gorgeous, Cindy. What a terrific gift and I am sure it will be well-loved. Safe one of the forks. There was an idea on Pinterest that turned the fork into a stand for cabinet cards or the like. I did it with an old spoon from my recycle collection and it turned out wonderfully. Again, Merry Christmas to you and Ralph...will be thinking of you Christmas morning!! Big hugs, Gayle.
