You remember the old saying "A spoon full of sugar makes you sweet!" Well, this is the Cranky Queen's take on that old wise tale...In April, we celebrated a gal pal's birthday, & that night we "spooned"...okay, that sounds a little weird...we altered spoons for our craft night out...
The Cranky Queen decided to use a Fleur-de-lis theme. Embellishing with white vintage crocheted lace, old buttons & earrings, & silk leaves from an old, shabby wedding topper.
I added black & white checked & silver ribbon for the spoon handle & a vintage brooch for some "bling"! This spoon honors my Louisiana heritage...
The B-day girl, Melanie, chose a laundry theme for her spoon! Isn't she adorable??? She used a child's washtub graphic, aged torn dictionary pages, buttons, lace & an old key to dangle off the end of the spoon.
Because bees are so popular now, Shannon was "busy as a bee" altering her spoon! She used jute to wrap the spoon handle in and glued a vintage button for added detail. Old dictionary pages were also used.

Jeri, our newest friend to join the "junkin gal pals" used netting, dainty ribbon, silk flower & a rhinestone heart to adorn her ladle-type spoon. All her embellishments came from old wedding decorations.
Wanda, our hostess for the evening, made a precious spoon & actually has already done a post with her creation over at her blog,"Excuse Me While I Buy This Junk"... Visit her @ www.shopjustvintage.com

So, if you don't need your spoon for eating or feeding...try your "hand" at altering...it's a spoonful of fun!
Keep Calm & Keep Craftin'!
