A spoonful of glue



Today's blog is being posted out of sheer and utter guilt. This is the story of my hydrangea spoon rest ... Many years ago I spotted this spoon rest when we were travelling through Athens, and I had to have it {I know - it doesn't scream 'Athens' in any way}. I carefully packed it in my luggage for the rest of our journey and when we got home, I proudly displayed it in our kitchen. Until about three days later when I dropped it with my stupid hands, and it snapped in half {you can just about see the crack across the butterfly}. I was actually heartbroken. So before I smashed it into further oblivion, I stashed it away in my cupboard for safekeeping. So safely I packed it away that I forgot about it. I know. For-shame. 

I found said hydrangea spoon rest just this week and so I lovingly glued it back together, and it now sits next to my cooker, all pretty and hydrangea-y. Waiting to be used. I will admit haven't actually used it as a spoon rest though. Hell no. It's too pretty to use.

  1. That is SUCH a bummer! But at least there's life in it yet :)

    Also, I haven't said hi, yet, but I stumbled across your blog a month or two back and went through all of your archives. Love it all! And hi!

    1. You can be sure it's not going back in that cupboard again. It guilt tripped me again last night, so I put a clean spoon on it.

I do enjoy hearing peoples spin on things. So whether you like it or lump it, bring it.
