Spoon Rest Gift

 This sweet spoon rest was a gift from a gardening friend because she said it reminded her of me.

Spoon Rest Gift

A gardening friend shared this little bag with something she said had my name on it. It's interesting to see how others see us so I opened the bag with a smile, I love surprises!

Inside was this charming spoon rest, purchased from a nearby family-style restaurant gift shop in case you like it as well.

Besides the thought, I could quickly see why she thought of me when she saw it.

 Before you ask, this came from a neighborhood family style restaurant gift shop.

The spoon rest is large. We had recently talked about wanting larger spoon rests for soup spoons so I suspected that conversation had inspired her to look at these often overlooked kitchen assistants.

The rest was easy. Honeybees, for my apiary Home Sweet Bees; ladybugs, the logo for Bluebird Gardens, and flowers, all hand-painted. 

 Bees, ladybugs and flowers, my favorites. What luck to have them all together!

Sometimes when I find something perfect like this for a gift I also can't wait to present it. Thank you, Emily, I love it!
