A Little Collection...

This week I found a spoon rack at the thrift store.  Now, if you're like me, you think of little souvenir spoons displayed on these.  Well, this rack was old and handmade...

 The wood has a beautiful old patina...I wouldn't think of painting this one.  

I couldn't help thinking what a wonderful display it would be 
for my engraved silverplate spoon collection...

hotel silver...


I love how the rack looks hanging in my dining room... 
and having the spoons out where they can be seen.

Engraved and monogrammed spoons are such an affordable and easy-to-find collectible...

Until next time...


  1. Really liked that idea. Love the spoons!

  2. That is so pretty! I like the silver spoons on display...that's what a collection is for, right?
    glad you're not painting it.

  3. What a perfect find. I love your spoon collection.... such special pieces all of them - from such a unique time. I love old hangers from hotels too! So evocative :)

    I like it unpainted too...

  4. Beautiful! I think the spoons on the wood tone is so pretty. I'm visiting from Revi's blog tour. I'm a new follower. Nice to meet you! I love thrifting too :-)

  5. Love the one of a kind spoon rack. Your collection of spoons "pop" against the dark wood. Love that! Thanks for sharing. I so enjoy following you! -Julie xo

  6. Love all the spoons Linda and that is the perfect spoon holder to display them. Very pretty.

  7. What a cool collection! I love the spoon rack, and your spoons look great on it.

  8. Kudos to people that don't paint gorgeous old wood! :)

  9. that wood is beautiful - and I agree with you - not all wood needs to be painted! your spoon collection looks perfect posed in the rack - and now you can see and enjoy them all...

  10. Oh you would LOVE a spoon i just found for my aunt. I will try to remember to post before I send it! Great collection!

  11. I'm so glad you left the pretty wood finish as is! Your collection of spoons fits perfectly into the holder, so it was meant to be!

  12. So lovely!! Such a nice collection of spoons with a twist!

    Blessings, Edie Marie

  13. Treasures! I would keep them. Never collected spoons. I don't like the gold ones from vacation spots, but these I love! I'd love this!

  14. I didn't even know hotel spoon were a thing! Another thing I will be in the lookout for now. They look great hanging there!
