Happy Spoon Year!


Happy New Year everyone. May your cutlery drawer be organized and filled with all the forks, knives and spoons that you require.

Fork Birds

Fork birds by Matt wilsonJust to be clear, I named them Fork Birds not the artist. And the artist is Matt Wilson from South-Carolina.

Such a simple concept using the old forks, knives and spoons and some recycled lumber. Yes a simple concept but so elegant and wondrous in it’s execution.  This flying flatware shows a creative eye for design and an innate understanding of the subjects. He does shrimp, fish and seahorses too!

Enamelware Serving Spoons

enamelware spoonsI have a special place in my heart for enamelware. It reminds me of the smalls pots and coffee cups my Grandmother used on the farm. And the design of these enamelware serving spoons from Crow Canyon fit the bill.

This flatware is a set of two 6-inch spoons that are oven, freezer and dishwasher safe. Two things to remember, they are metal inside so no microwave because cause they will spark (for that matter they might rust if you let them sit in water). And secondly that enamelware needs a little care, no smacking it around on pots and pans or it may chip. But that’s part of the down on the farm character.

What is this Cutlery Contraption?

cutlery questionOK, time for a quiz for all you experts out there. Let’s pretend we are on one of those TV shows like Pawn Stars, or even better, Antiques Roadshow. What is this thing? What is it used for? How is it used? And what does it have to do with a fork, knife or spoon?

Come back next week for the answer!

UPDATE: It’s a chopstick and spoon rest like this one from Amazon:
