Christmas silverware garden markers and signs. Elves in the workshop

Silverware Christmas signs and silverware Christmas garden markers.
The "elves" worked hard this summer instead of going boating or to the beach.


A freehand sketch was hammered dot by dot in the shape of tree into the silverware.

I know it's very early and seeing holiday decor in October has never been something I was fond of. I've been getting holiday orders since late August.

Since these are handmade to order they take time.

 





I liked how this set of reindeer spoons looks in a basket of shells,

$68.00

But,
love how these turned out

$78.00 for the top drilled style



Aren't they cute?
Great if you have a small apartment
They take up soooo little room to store away!


Garden Marker style $68.00
Top drilled ornament style $78.00

Rita, these are absolutely stunning! You HAVE to have wonderful tools...I wouldn't know where to begin. Thank you for visiting me and leaving such an encouraging comment. My goal is to reach out and shed some thoughts out there, and what has happened, I have met the loveliest people with whom I share so much. Beauty is vast and each one of us has so much to give. Your lovely style is so tender and sweet, and I THINK YOU ARE SMART TO START NOW for Christmas! It will creep up on me soon!

Enjoy your evening, Anita

These are absolutely darling! How to choose which ones I need?? I might need the ornaments, but the garden markers would be perfect for my little apartment herb garden. Love them!

I LOVE the "ho ho ho" spoon! It just made me laugh- darling. I know - it's hard for me to believe the Christmas decor is out already. I guess I'm not much of a planner!

These are stunning!!! I'm especially tickled by the reindeer spoons. Such intricate work and such beautiful camerawork. I hope you sell lots to make it worth all the time you spent away from the beach.

These spoons are just wonderful, Rita! What great Christmas gifts they would make. I would HAVE to pull that "one for you...one for me" card, though! lol! Great idea of starting to make these early. Christmas is only 2 months away ---- yikes!
