Because everyone else has them..

Remember these forks and spoons that used to hang in your grandparents houses? Okay, (parents) maybe.


I remember them in my Gramp's house way back when. Now they're back like wildfire. Or, last year they were. Ha.. Yeah, I vetoed them greatly and said "No, I will not go back to that era." Then, I'd see them out and about and think.. Aww look at that. Cute! My mind would say no, and then my heart would get mad at me later. You know what happens when things come back in style? The price tag goes up too.

But when these lovelies were at HobLob for 3.00 a pc, I gave in. 


Gramps, you're back in style. Not so much the dark cabinets and mustard colored counter top but your giganto fork and spoon, yes sir!


I just needed to tweak them a bit for my taste. I saw this a *long* time ago which started my-- oh, they're not so bad mentality, and I wish I could tell you who started it. Blogger friend, if you're reading this: Let me know so I can give credit where credit is due!



Anyways, a spray of some left over white paint and some jute and I'd call it good! How about you? Tell me, love it or leave it on the huge silver wear hanging on your wall topic. Am I silly for giving in? Silly for doing it a year after they came "back"?

I love the fork & spoon in your 1st photo. I swear my Mom had some similiar to this back in the day and they had grapes/vine or something on them =) I picked up mine just recently at Hobby Lobby... of course 50% off!

Love it! I have a big vintage fork hanging in my dining room. I left it's original patina because it was just silvery metal and I liked it.

When people visit, it's one of the first things they comment on!! So funny!!

They are really hard to find now!

I know what you mean about the fork and spoon era. I have a giant fork that my MIL gave me awhile ago. I have had it stored forever. Yours are so cute I just might have to get it out and join you. I Love it!!!

I seriously love the big fork and spoon! I didn't even know they were in style when I bought mine at a thrift store to redo! I love yours painted white too...they look so different from the ones that are black! And the twine is a great touch:)

Those are super cute and I love the touch of burlap around them...good find!
