special gift

I admit I get spoiled at Christmas...lots of great gifts from my family!
But this year there was a special gift from my sister....

This is made out of the silverware that we grew up with on the farm...

My mother passed away about 2 years ago, and we spent many,many hours clearing out the farm house. It had been built by her father (my grandfather) and I am sure there were many things that had been there that long!!
We took many things home, shared many with grandchildren and other family, but there were some things we just didn't have a use for. This old silverware was one of those things. My sister has a friend who makes this jewellery and she said she would love to have whatever was this is what she made...

I was so surprised  and impressed....I didn't know anything about this. I think this is a great memento, and something that is easy to wear often...with jeans or a  dress!


  1. Oh my. A truly unique piece of jewelry with a wonderful story. Thank you for sharing.

  2. What a treasure to have some of your grandmother's silver to slip around your wrist. A beautiful rememberance of her.

  3. Wow... for en fantastisk ide og så lekkert !
    Ha en forsatt fin romjul :)

  4. I've seen these pieces of jewelery made from cutlery on pinterest, but never such a lovely one. How nice of you your sister! You'll get plenty of wear out of it, I'm sure.

  5. It really is a nice way to use things that otherwise might be just forgotten in a drawer, and btw, your little purses in the last post look great! thanks for posting how to do them, I always was curious how they worked, Also, do you speak Norwegian???


Please leave a comment or just say hello....It's nice to know I am not talking to myself!
