The weekend is here, and I stopped by the thrift store near my house this morning. As usual, not much new on the decor and book aisles.
So, I wandered down the pots and pans aisle where they have the miscellaneous kitchen utensils and stainless flatware. You know the one I mean.
I rarely ever rummage through all that, but for some reason, I looked, and guess what I saw...
...an antique coin silver serving spoon!
It's by R&W Wilson, Philadelphia 1825-1846, nine inches long and not a ding in it.
It was just laying on top of some kitchen utensils, winking at me.
Actually, this is what it looked like when I got it.
Can you believe it was only 99 cents!
Right now, you're probably wondering why I'm so excited about finding a silver spoon. Well, I LOVE LOVE old silver, especially spoons, and I have no idea why.
After I ran a few errands, I brought it home and gave it a quick polish...
...then, I remembered the ice cream I'd gotten at the store. Hmmm...
It is a serving spoon, after all, so I "served" my self a bite...a BIG bite.
Did you know...ice cream tastes sooo much better eaten from an antique silver spoon? :)
Have a great weekend, stay cool, and treat yourself to a silver spoonful of ice cream.
