Just 'met' Erin from DinnerTimeChimes on We Love Etsy and the unexpected happened. Erin makes wonderful chimes and keyrings using old flatware. I randomly clicked on her etsy mini and this keyring popped up. This was my Mom's everyday flatware that we used while I was growing up. What a rush of wonderful memories of food, dinners, and fighting with my brother came rushing back. (Yes, good memories of fights with my brother...I always won since I was younger!!!)
I wonder if in today's world of take out/go out will an old spoon trigger any memories for our children or grandchildren. I think I have to buy this keyring!
I also love when anyone repurposes stuff! I feel I do that with my buttons to a degree but Erin certainly takes it to the max. Thanks for the memory rush!

We had these wonderful old plates at our grandmother's house....even when we were older those plates brought back so many memories.

What a great idea. Yes, I too appreciate how people "recreate" from vintage items. Love your button barrate (sp. hair clip).? Have you heard about the Etsy 90 day feature challenge? Just type in 90 day challenge in the forum section and it ill come up. You might be interested.

What a fantastic find! I try my best to give my daughter the kind of life she can have fond memories of.
