True Colors Thursday - Silver

Our challenge for True Colors this week was to find something silver and miniature and to tell you about it.

This ABC fork and spoon belonged to our grandpa when he was a little boy. They were given to him by his Godparents.   We think they're pretty special.

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

How cool that you still have those. Mom was looking at her Mom's spoon collection when we were home in Australia and she had quire a few miniature ones too

They are the coolest fork and spoon that I've ever seen! Beautiful!

Those are great! We have the muzzer's, but none any farther back than that. We do have a whole bunch of those tiny spoon things if your mom wants them. Better her silver chest than ours, right?

If Antic Road Show comes to town or some place close you should go and have them appraised they are probably worth 4 or 5 hundreds of $$$ !! They are so special!!

Wow that's neat. Having the alphabet on the utensils -- pretty cool. I've only seen flower or scroll designs on silverware -- guess we don't get out much! Thanks for sharing your find!

Yes, I think they would be very special. I wonder how many generations of the family will treasure those little things in times to come.
