Beach and Bridal™ Mr. & Mrs. wedding cake forks and vintage wedding silverware garden markers etc.

Weddings, anniversaries, parties and new additions to families happen year round....A personalized spoon or pair of forks (space permitting) is a fun, yet thoughtful way to mark any occasion.   

Perfect for the people who seem to have everything.


Several months ago I thought why not have bridal items,
and added them to my Etsy shop.  The original's had flattened forks
to serve as place card holders.  Hmmm why not for the
 first bite of wedding cake?


I sold a set and received the sweetest little note from the bride to be.


Then I thought well how often would the "bride and groom"
use the forks except; maybe on an anniversary,

and why not a set to use all the time if they preferred.

(Also available in "his and hers" and "yours and mine")

So, Mr. and Mrs. were introduced.  Again, a few sets.

To say I was caught off guard when they were featured
on the Etsy Storque blog would be an understatement.

There I was on a day off still sitting in my p.j.s
sighing because the computer screen was jumping.....
Talk about falling off the chair when I opened
email and saw a lot of conversations.  Finally, someone
 told me what was going on and said they were
being featured in other places too.

I was, and am grateful.Very grateful.

I worry some days about not meeting those expectations.
It's exciting and scary at the same time.  So, I will take the
advice of my loving family and sweet friends and enjoy the moment.
 while legal minds sort out the details of protecting designs.

Newer beachy versions

This style fork set is currently not available.


Thought these would go nice with the glamorous
beach in vase from this post.


Just some things to add to the existing flower pins and jewelry.

Anyway, that's what I've been up to.  I'm sorry if I haven't
been visiting you as often lately.
Feel free to pop on over and help polish and pack silverware.

Newest editions to the family

Thanks for stopping by.

Well good morning! How absolutely lovely all of these vintage and beach-inspired objets d'art are! Thank you for coming to leave a message on my post and yes, the possibilities when one has imagination are quite impressive! I would so love to have a little space to decorate as such, to really keep the cost low of letting out those creative energies. Take advantage of that space you have when you get the inspiration.....have a splendid day! Anita
