Slowly but surely I am putting names to faces - in a manner of speaking.
With my books,Google and Replacements.com, I have identified almost all of the flatware that belonged to my mother and grandmother. Knowing the name of pattern and its age for some reason gives me a sense of accomplishment. Accomplish is my word for 2011. I am not concerned about the value but having an idea of the worth makes it more fun as we travel around “antiquing” on the occasional weekend.
I remember my grandmother sending away for the various pieces of flatware. She saved Betty Crocker coupons. Betty Crocker and Oneida had a partnership but it is very hard to find too much information about the Betty Crocker patterns. I had hoped to have a link for you but got that wonderful “page not found” screen.
Old Colony is one of my favorites and I found demitasse spoons on our last outing. They were very tarnished but I could tell they were in great condition.
My product of choice….I do not receive compensation for this endorsement or any product I rave about.
So with very little effort here are my Old Colony Demitasse spoons.
Of course I had to make some mosaics for Mosaic Monday at Mary’s.
I have my little orange stickies (sort of ugly color, I know) by my computer and I am photographing each pattern and labeling them for posterity. Very time consuming but I might make note cards for gifts.
Have a wonderful week and be sure to stop by and see all the lovely mosaics at Little Red House.
