My creative space: spoons

You know those old commemorative teaspoons that are always kicking around op shops, their silver plating a bit chipped and the holidays they were bought on long forgotten?  I collect them sporadically (we've got a few royal family ones in the kitchen including a great '80s Fergie one) and lately I've been painting them for my collections zine that I'm slowly working on.  

 The two on the top left are still in progress...
Here they are in real life

I love Thursdays, they're my day off so I usually take myself out for a coffee to celebrate.  And my local cafe always serves their coffee with old commemorative teaspoons too.  I might pop up there right now!

Joining in with "my creative space" over here.

Happy Thursday!


  1. Omigoodness - are we thrift twins? I collect those too, although I'm fussy and only buy Taranaki ones (where I'm from) or Manawatu ones (where I live now.)

    Wonderful drawings!

  2. Lovely painting of your spoons! A collections zine sounds really interesting :)

  3. Hi Emily, I am very much looking forward to this zine :)
