This was one of the first gifts I opened, after waiting almost a week. I wanted to savor the anticipation. 🙂 (For the record, it’s two weeks past my birthday and I still have unopened cards and packages!) I could not get a good photo of it, but I tried.
The colors won’t show up as well as they do in person, but you can get a general idea.
What’s neat is that I received two spoons, so I can keep one for display and use the other one. Frankly, though, these are too pretty to use. Definitely too fragile for business use. The bowl and handle are separate parts, and any impact would be disastrous. The instructions suggest using the spoons to scoop dry ingredients such as sugar or tea.
They remind me of maracas I used in childhood music class. The handle curves in such a pretty, delicate way.
My olive wood spoon was still rather jealous at the attention for the newbies, so I inspected it after Saturday’s oiling. It looks great! The oil brought out the wood grain and gave everything a lovely glow. Shame on me for not using conditioning oil on my wooden spoons long ago!
Wooden spoons. *happy sigh* Thank you for making my birthday so special. ❤
