Vintage silverplated flatware garden markers

This old silverplate was an incompleted windchime project. 

Originally, I was going to stamp the flatware with our names or with whimisical and inspirational sayings.  Then I thought it would be really cute and different to add some more embellishment(s) but, never got around to it.

My freind asked what are you doing with this box of junk.  Well, if your not making windchimes with sayings why don't you make place card holders out of them?  Good idea, then I happened to see some done up as garden markers.  So here they are in all their cute tarnished, hammered, stamped, shabby glory.

I love the first spoon stamped with "basil"
This set below of soup and serving spoons is available in my Etsy shop

I have to take more photos of the other sets and share them with you.  I have so many ideas and uses for these things my head is spinning! 

I think these are really fun and hope you do too. 

Thanks for stopping by Dumpster Decorators
