These are my parents' everyday spoons........yes, when you eat your Rice Krispies at their home....you will use one of these beautiful antique sterling silver spoons that were passed down from my great aunts to my Dad and Mom.......there are more of them than shown here but when I was taking the picture some were sitting in the kitchen sink waiting to be washed....why?....because Mom and Dad use them every day....for everything from stirring their morning coffee to eating their dish of ice cream before bed. If you look close you can see the months of the year....complete with the astrological sign and corresponding flower. I just love these pretty spoons and I love the fact that my parents are enjoying and using their precious heirlooms and can appreciate them each and every day......I think I'm ready for some chocolate ice-cream.
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
