I found two of the plastic spoons that used to come with Chinese take out. I like the shape so I used them as molds. The funny little one is an experiment to make it sit upright. I think I will make future spoons of this type with a little wedge of clay at the base to make them stand. The back one is made from the same larger spoon but with a long handle. It's meant to be a 'tasting spoon'. Does anyone remember these? You put the soup in the spoon and tilt it down the handle so you can taste without burning your mouth. Both my mother and Nanu had these in wood.
I'll make a few more of these to get the feel of them. I think I'll make the tasting spoon with it's own spoon rest. Who wants soup all over their stove or counter?
I hear rumors of it going down to the thirties tomorrow night. Today I'm getting out all my old blankets and covers, just in case! I'll bring in a bunch of plants, but I want to keep the morning glories and dahlias going. We could have a few nights of light frost, then great weather until Thanksgiving!
We'll see, grasshopper......we'll see....
Enjoy the coming week.
As always, thanks for stopping by...........*s*
