My grandmother passed away 13 years ago this year and one of the things I inherited was her vintage cutlery. It's probably not worth very much but it means so much to me. I've never used it but have had it stored away, always thinking of a way I could display it. My lovely next door neighbour asked if we wanted her old coffee table which housed her Mother's spoon collection. I had a light bulb moment and thought about my Nanna's cutlery. It fits perfectly.
It all needs a good polish, something I can do while I'm watching TV in the evenings. I love how all the spoons aren't perfectly round anymore, that their edges have been worn down over time, probably stirring gravies or custards or just from normal wear and tear. I wonder how old they really are?
