what I did....

with those black picture frames that were on the white dresser in my last post... I totally copied the Nester.

When I saw her post on framing a shrimp fork {I have a great one, it wouldn't fit in these frames} I knew what I had to do. I had been wanting to somehow display a butterknife from my Great Grandma and this was a great solution. I added a spoon from my collection and wha-la. I am a total rip-off artiste. What can I say??? Then I read that people thought she was pulling an April-fools joke... what??? This is like the cutest thing I've ever seen, people! I guess judging from my sister's reaction {"Okay? Your creativite ideas are um, very interesting, dude."} I guess that not everyone thinks so. I think vintage silverware mounted on french script scrapbook paper is tres chic. I guess I think it's so cute that I guess I don't care what anyone else thinks.

Have a great weekend!

I like the idea and love that it has sentimental value. Do what you love!

I saw that post and thought it was a great idea too, so then I guess the joke is on both of us. lol

Looks great, very nice!

Thank you for your amazing comment on my bathroom. You are so sweet and I get so much inspiration from your blog as well. You are totally not a rip off artist because you put your own spin on things.

Seriously Cute! I laughed when I found out people thought it was a joke. I guess there are some out there without our fine tastes (hee hee!)

Love these! I've got a few pieces of monogrammed silverware from my husband's great-grandparents that I never knew what to do with. I might have to try this.
