Pumpkin Stems ...

Hello my dear friends,

several weekends ago I visited the Aberfoyle Antique Market here in Ontario with my two lovely daughters and it was amazing!

We thought it would take us maybe an hour or two to walk around the market but in the end we were there for over 5 hours! Unfortunately I didn't think of taking any photos of the market itself, I was just in awe of all the old and neat bits and pieces that were everywhere. You should have seen everything! There were so many amazing and beautiful treasures there but nothing caught my eye that I wanted to take home for me and myself. In a way a good thing because I really am trying to thin out the clutter in our home. Then again ... I did see one thing, that was that take home piece but it was a wee bit too big. It was a full sizes antique horse sleigh from the 1800's with an $800 price tag. So for those two reasons, too big in size and price, it had to stay there. (Sigh)  I was on the lookout for something to work with and I was fortunate that I did find some neat pieces!

I found some beautiful old silverware and I am sharing four special pieces of it today which are some antique forks.

I am in love with these!
The reason you are only seeing three forks is that as soon as I got home the hacksaw came out. I already had a picture in my mind of what was going to become of that fork.

Just look at all the details!

Now you see why I said they were special, they are just so very beautiful!

Vintage and antique silverware was actually all I took away from the huge antique market apart from the lovely time I spent with my two beautiful daughters that day and that was priceless! The three of us are already looking forward to going back next year again and maybe then I will find that little piece for me and myself to take home.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today, here at Todolwen. Make sure you come back sometime again and see what I have been up too.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
