The gal behind spoon me.
“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
Have you heard that old saying? Let me be clear, I’m kind of a junk queen and have a hard time throwing away milk jugs because of the velocity of crafts Pinterest tells me I can make with them. Yea, I’m her, Kim. Lover of all things DIY repurposing; flea market addict, crafter, photographer, silly, sarcastic, obnoxious morning person, Mom, coffee drinker, pad thai addict, cooker, gardener and let’s not forget I love my vino. I live in a tiny historic town in Western Maryland where people at the local coffee shop know your name. Did anyone else just break into the theme song for that 80’s show Cheers? I’m showing my age.
About a year ago, my lovely 60+ parents began making key chains out of vintage silverware and were giving as gifts; spreading joy to waitresses, doctors, random strangers, etc. If you appeared to be having a bad day, you were given a key chain. At the time, they were only using the handle of vintage silverware and quickly accumulated a few 5 gallon buckets of cut spoon heads. “Please don’t throw those away." I said. “We can find a purpose for them.” Stop. I know what you’re thinking. I’m not a hoarder. By definition anyways. So, the old cut spoons made their way home to me. At Spoon Me, every single piece is 100% handmade. I personally flatten, file, drill, polish and hand stamp each spoon into a variety of things; key chains, necklaces, plant markers, bracelets and more! Whether a spoon or a knife, no part of the silverware goes unused. Gift a personal message or create something for yourself! Make it yours! Make it unique.
My goal is to continue on the origin my parents started; giving back with kindness! My customers inspire me and I am flattered every day by the trust that is put in my hands to create such keepsakes. Keepsakes such as graduation gifts, bridesmaid gifts, Mother's Day gifts, memory keepsakes, birth gifts, etc. It makes the heart happy and full!
"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away." - W. Shakespeare
So, thanks for stopping by Spoon Me, where everybody knows your name and we're always glad you came. And if you have made it this far, I’m grateful that you haven’t dismissed me all together with my alarmingly cheesy ‘Cheers' quotes. Terrible, I know.
