I've always and forever had a thing for table settings. It began with a love affair with dishes, and has branched off to vintage linens...(anything from tablecloths to napkins to cutwork doilies....) and then finally, on to serving pieces and flatware.
Oh, me oh my.
Over the past several months I've come across some charming old flatware pieces, and I have decided to group them into mismatched place settings to use for entertaining, or just for dining by myself. (Six of one style fork, six of another style spoon, etc...)
My latest find was just this past Sunday evening at a local thrift shop. I couldn't believe my eyes when I discovered them. There they were, six perfectly matched Rogers Silver soup spoons. The old, wonderful, big, perfectly round soup spoons that make eating a bowl of soup or chowder extra special. Oh, I had planned to put them in my booth space, but then, as I washed them and polished them, I realized that I had fallen in love with them, and decided, that, at least for now, they need to stay in my home.
*sigh* They are the perfect comfort accompaniment to comfort food, if that makes any sense.
