Do you remember these spoons from a few years ago? (Idea by way of Frugal Luxuries by the Seasons, Bantam, 2000.) Vintage silverware was easily turned into ornaments and used to adorn the house for the holidays. (The plate had worn off almost entirely...thus the gold spray paint.) Imagine my happy surprise when this morning... while browsing through the ever inspiring Etsy...I happened upon a kindred soul...Daisy Chestnut...who put her own clever spin on this basic concept!! You can see a few of her ideas above but there are lots more images of her creative ways to up~cycle and re~purpose old silver wares here!

Please enjoy a lovely Monday my kind friends. more soon.

Love and good thoughts from...Tracey and family

"FRUGAL LUXURIES: Simple Pleasures to Enhance Your Life and Comfort Your Soul" was written by Tracey McBride and published by Bantam Books, NY, in 1997. It was the first of its genre to synergize the elements of simplicity, frugality and gracious living.

After more than a decade, FRUGAL LUXURIES has never been out of print and is now more relevant than ever.

"It's our hope that a new generation, faced with a teetering economy, will also find this information helpful and enlightening."
