It was on one of those occasions that I found myself the new owner of her spoon collection.
Over the years I have displayed the spoons on a simple spoon rack that she used. However, it didn't really coincide with the style I wanted. One day I came upon this idea of displaying them in shadow boxes. I can't remember now where I saw it, whether a magazine, or internet, or book, but I loved the idea.
Right now I am only displaying 9 of the spoons. I really didn't want to use any more than three shadow boxes.
I didn't want to damage the spoons in any way, so I didn't want to tack them with any kind of glue, or tape. I ended up using some black stretchy string that I tied right under the head of the spoon, then I pushed a pearl sewing pin through the string and then through the black backing at an angle so that it would hold the spoon in place.
Now, I just need to come up with an idea for all the other spoons, hmmmmm.......................
