Silverware Christmas ornaments gift tags cheese marker forks and a giveaway.

Silverware Christmas ornaments, gift or wine tags, and cheese marker forks and a giveaway to thank all of you for the support and kindness of my many ramblings about silverware.

Stamping silverware started so simply  but has managed to change the course of  the one I originally charted of beach inspired stamped jewelry, paper goods and recycled sail items etc., etc.  I hope to be doing those things again next year but, in the meantime here are a few items that were suggested by and/or inspired by fellow bloggers.

  Silverware Ornaments

I know it's kind of late on one hand for the Christmas ornaments, but most can be used year round for all sorts of occasions.

Bottle tags or ornaments

These can be personalized with names or table numbers too.

Fun for a wedding or party.

Just think of not having to buy or write out a name gift tag again.

All of the ornaments and tags are items that have already been recycled into something new and can be passed along to be used again and again without the guilt of re-gifting.

Cheese marker forks

These little suckers looked so unassuming and easy instead of the reality of labor intensive. A convexly curved object needs a way to be perched while trying to not damage the tines and doesn't exactly sit still in the process.

Saw the handle off and file the tops and then re-shape if needed.


Also available personalized up to six letters sometimes seven

  Now for the giveaway part.

 Open to U.S. residents

You don't have to be a follower or become one, but no anonymous comments.

   Simply leave a comment which silverware ornament/gift tag you like best
and if you got one would you pass it along or keep it?
