How it all started....

“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Have you heard that old saying? Let me be clear, I’m kind of a junk queen and have a hard time throwing away milk jugs because of the velocity of crafts Pinterest tells me I can make with them. Yea, I’m her, Kim. Lover of all things DIY repurposing; flea market addict, crafter, photographer, silly, sarcastic, obnoxious morning person, Mom, coffee drinker, pad thai addict, cooker, gardener and let’s not forget I love my vino. I live in a tiny historic town in Western Maryland where people at the local coffee shop know your name. Did anyone else just break into the theme song for that 80’s show Cheers? I’m showing my age.

About a year ago, my lovely 60+ parents began making keychains out of vintage silverware and were giving as gifts; spreading joy to waitresses, doctors, random strangers, etc. If you appeared to be having a bad day, you were given a keychain. Shortly after, they began selling to local antique and vintage stores. They did what we call today in the marketing world ‘grassroots’ marketing; hit the streets, door to door to small businesses to see if there was any interest. It’s a lost art. It speaks volumes of your product, character and allows people to place a face with the name. At the time, they were only using the handle of vintage silverware and quickly accumulated a few 5 gallon buckets of cut spoon heads. “Please don’t throw those away." I said. “We can find a purpose for them.” Stop. I know what you’re thinking. I’m not a hoarder. By definition anyways. So, the old cut spoons made their way home to me. I personally flatten, file, drill, polish and hand stamp each spoon into a variety of things; keychains, necklaces, plant markers, bracelets and more! My goal is to continue on the origin my parents started. Giving back. Inspiring people with creative thoughts; funny, corky, blunt, inspirational, religious, etc. Upcycling silverware into creative, funky and eye-catching pieces of jewelry is what I take pride in. Whether a spoon or a knife, no part of the silverware goes unused.

So, thanks for stopping by Spoon Me, where everybody knows your name and we're always glad you came. And if you have made it this far, I’m grateful that you haven’t dismissed me all together with my alarmingly cheesy ‘Cheers' quotes. Terrible, I know.

Cheers, (oops)
