Itty Bitty Inchie Spoon Easels

Another batch done (can you call 3 a batch??lol) I'm improving on my metal stamping. yea!!
Now if I can improve on my photography!
I did another nest. I dipped it in a patina solution, its a little darker then it appears here.
Now this is what I'm talking about!! I've had suggestions for placecards...this one I LOVE! I found I had some white stained glass...it could probably be called vintage...its from the "back in the day" when I made stained glass windows. I pulled out my glass grinder. dusted it off, added water and purrrrrr. Still worked like a charm! Then I wrapped it in very narrow foil and soldered away... Oh yes, a dry erase pen works!!
Heres all three
I'm putting them on Etsy....
I'm a little slow getting these out...my day job is taking up waaaay to much time!!
I had to clean and paint 3 Townhomes. With the economy changing, I had 7 people give notice that they were buying homes...good for them...bad for me.

Your easel's are just adorable. It's hard to choose a favorite one, so I guess they would all be favorites.

The spoons are wonderful Laurie! Talk about inspiring and unique, though I'll never tire of your sweet birds and pincushions!
