an altered spoon and a baseball themed mini book

Thinking on Thanksgiving . . .

I painted the spoon a shimmery gold, which almost shows in this photo!  The die cut is actually trimmed from the edges of a wedding invitation we received, and it's glued to the back with Tacky Glue.

Clothespins make fabulous clamps!

Here it is, with vintage trims attached  with lightbulb shaped pins through a hole punched in the handle:

 You can see the glittery bits at the edge of the spoon, as well . . .

If you're looking for a fun something to make the baseball fan in your life (Christmas gift??), be sure to check out this baseball themed book kit--it includs full photo directions for making the basic book form, plus lots of baseball quotes from iconic players like Babe Ruth, Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, and many more.
I personalized one for the recipient by adding a photo of my nephew wearing his uniform.
The book form has a pocket on each page, perfect for holding ticket stubs, real baseball cards, and other bits and bobs and memorabilia.
 Happy Thursday to you, and a Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. A-Ma-Zing! It is so gorgeous, this would be a lovely hostess gift for Thanksgiving dinner!

    1. Oooh, hostess gift--never thought of that, making up several Christmas ones would be good to have on hands!


  2. Wow, you got a lot of beautiful layers on this altered spoon!
