Baby silverware- 3 generations of forks and spoons that were lovingly used to feed strained squash, carrots, applesauce, peaches (the favorite) and green beans, (NOT a favorite!).
I am a saver, but I TRY not to keep items that are not used or displayed.
Display sweet baby silverware in a shadow box. This shadow box came with a photo mat on which I copied a vintage poem, "a child should always say what's true and speak when he is spoken to; and behave mannerly at table. At least when he is able". Hmmmm?
This shadow box is about an inch deep. I used a solid colored mat board, (available at your local framing department), for the back. I attached the silverware to the mat board by using the self stick velcro. Stick one side of the sticky velcro to the mat and the other side of the sticky velcro to the spoon/fork. Secure each utensil to the mat board by lining up the velcro. You could also glue pieces of ribbon to the mat board to secure the utensils.
My shadow box treasure hangs on my wall.
