Silver lining, sort of

Hello, and TGIF to everyone who works Monday through Friday. 

Ours began with lots of rain this morning so I stayed home, although my productivity has been nothing to brag about. After seeing an idea online about displaying silver, I was inspired to give it a try. Except it turns out my silver is mostly mugs, cups and similar pieces, rather than flatware as in the article. What I do own is a lot of old baby spoons, forks and the like, even if they aren't all or even the majority of them real silver. I started with this:
a decidedly ho hum thing framed with some fancy wrapping paper and scrap book embellishments. Ditching the contents, my sights turned to:
The back was paper Mr. B's birthday gift was wrapped in with two pieces of silver.  For anyone from here, the spoon is actually a demitasse from the old Rice Hotel. Maybe I'll hang it in the kitchen, or save it for a shower gift. 

That's all the news from here. Have a wonderful weekend.
