So I changed the color palate of the craft room…again. I couldn’t help myself and it really just happened by accident.
It was going to be this
and now it’s going to be this
based on this
What is it? It’s a decorative spoon from Ukraine. Once upon a time I used to run a scholarship program for high school students from the former Soviet Union (minus the Baltics). I, at 22, was responsible for 40 high school students from 12 countries. If their parents only knew they were entrusting their babies to a 22 year old. Seriously, it blows my mind to think about it now. I have do have to say, I was really good at my job and I loved it. The students were AWESOME – most of them anyway. Actually, I hooked up two kids who eventually married each other. They are from Ukraine just like this spoon. It was a present from one of the students I managed my first year.
I found the spoon one day as I was unpacking a few boxes. I’ve always loved the colors on the spoon. They make me happy and the detail are SO pretty.
My goal (which has been my goal for months) is get the craft room to a presentable state over the weekend. I’ve got most of Saturday and all day Sunday to get there. I also want to get the entry table area ready for your viewing pleasure by Monday too.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I’ve got items to frame, pictures to hang and my Gatsby to get on. That’s another story for next week.
