An interesting article by Brendan McConville the professor of history at Boston University. These silver communion spoons were built with specifically chosen silver coins. His article contains many topics that intrigue me such as repurposed coins, Guy Fawkes (which is this sunday) and Alan Moore. OK, the last one is a stretch.
GraciousStyle.com has an amazing collection of guides published as PDF books. Titles include everything from “The Perfect Tablecloth” to “The Perfect Bed”. Did I mention they are free online? Of special interest is “The Perfect Flatware” guide. It’s a wonderful online book with beautiful colour plates that make you wish for a hard copy in your hands.
Happy Halloween! When I started to look for Halloween themed cutlery I was expecting to find skeleton forks or something, but this was an unexpected find. The perfect container for the orange and black plastic flatware at your child’s party. And if you are into that scene then it’s handy year round. Don’t forget that to some people everyday is Halloween. And more importantly remember that it’s still cool to eat your chocolate bar with a fork and knife.
Unica Home is a nice retail site for everything you might need in your home. OK, maybe not need, more like want. Bonnie and Hugh run the website out of Las Vegas and have an eye for the unique. Eveything from black skull plateware to toy cars. The pictured cutlery is “C2 from Mono” which has an amusing way of letting you tell your server whether you want meat or fish. Go take a look.
