Will, Dave, the flea, and me.

Will, Dave, and I loaded up and headed out to an area flea market this morning. I’ve been nursing a bug to not just sell new stuff in my shop, but to find cool vintage stuff to re-purpose and craft into some new little thing. Today my laser beam focus was on silver plate. I want to make an assortment of flattened and stamped spoons for the spring gardening boom over the winter.

So Will and I got ready to go while Dave was in the shower. Will was feeling his Hemingway look today.

I brought home a haul of silver plate odds and ends. It was all in a box that I snagged for $25 as an end-of-day deal.

Stay tuned…The spoons are headed for a violent demise.

Everything polished up so pretty! I’m happy about the day’s haul.

OH NO! Who will save the wee spoons? (Muahaha)
Dave asked if this can be his job. He’s very good at whacking things.

These will be smacked down and stamped with the names of common herbs.

This little guy models as “Parsley”. How do you do, Mr. Parsley? Lookin’ good!
