The life and times of a Goozeberry
I have always been fascinated by items from a bygone era and whilst reading a book about Georgian and Victorian Table etiquette I stumbled upon the overwhelming types of cutlery and tableware they used.
Today we usually have just one set of cutlery and maybe one for ‘best’ when the in-laws come around; but in the past they had an item of cutlery for anything and everything from an tiny egg spoon to an Asparagus Tongs, a fruit knife to a Berry Ladle ( My prized possession is a 19th century silver plated sandwich scissors!) These no longer have a place in the modern home but it saddened me that they would be left idle in a dusty box under the stairs, it was this that prompted me to rejuvenate these once loved possessions into items that would be treasured once more.
So armed with my trusty hammer and a vintage antique axe head (It's a long story!!) I embarked on my stamping empire :D
My days of working in management for someone else are far behind me and now I manage me, my cutlery and my home.
