Since 2003, when I learned about this theory...
by Christine Miserandino
Spoons have become another kind of interest of mine.
Mentally I have kept a collection of my own to allow me to do things beyond my limits on some days. Without the help of those imaginary objects, I wouldn't be where I am today. Ok, maybe I'm being a bit over zealous but what I was trying to say is the theory works when you work it. And we've been working it ever since!
But You Don't Look Sick began at a time when we were still learning and dealing with what had been happening. Many times over the years, especially toward the end of a special occasion, I would have to admit my spoons were getting low. My daughter always knew what I meant and stepped right up.
Fast forward to present time and those spoons are doing just fine.
Though my own posting can get a bit sporadic, I still stop by many of my original bloggers I've been following since I started blogging.
One of those is Between Naps on the Porch.
If you've been following my blog, or know me personally, you know how much I love DISHES. I just love setting a table. I can't pass them up at Estate Sales or Antique shops. Over the years I have acquired some pretty special pieces and sets of my own. I like learning how to pull them all together and her blog is a great place to begin. She does one of those carnival, or party things every Thursday.
So many idea's in one place. I love it! I don't know if I will ever set a table as gorgeous as hers, or some of the others but when she recently posted a blog about her spoons, I fell in love with the idea.
My MIL had boxes and boxes of them that I've held onto for reason I didn't know why at the time. Maybe I thought I would get the rest mounted. (she had 3 glass and wood cabinets full along with a half dozen shoe boxes full) Where ever she was, she picked one up. Most are those regular souvenir kind, but she also has some really beautiful old ones as well. Those are the ones I plan to put to use. After all, they aren't doing any good in the box.
Just like she said holds true here, spoons get used a lot around here too!
