[ book of spoons ]

Not long after I’d started blogging, my husband was given Jasper Morrison’s Book of Spoons, which had me digging out all our spoons to photograph them.

This seemed to start lots of other people off on the same craze, and soon there were spoons pics all over the web.

I collected some of these pics together and, with the photographers’ permission, made my Borrowed Spoons tea towel design (below).

Every now and again, I still get contacted by people about the spoons, so I thought I’d do a Flickr search and see what kinds of spoons pics are floating around here. Hope you enjoy!

    I guess I am not the only one who brings spoons home from the flea market constantly. My weakness: enamel spoons. Thanks for sharing!

    I love collections in general. Its amazing how we often overlook certain objects until we see them in a grouping. Beautifully done.

    Wow! I haven’t thought of those Tupperware measuring spoons in ages… a set still resides in a kitchen drawer of the house I grew up in. I may have to ask them to come live with me instead.

    My main set of (Tupperware) measuring spoons are considered vintage?? Oh no. I’m feeling old.

  9. Great post Heather – you can’t beat a collection of wooden spoons of all shapes & sizes – there’s always the perfect one for a job in the kitchen. I love your new ‘Spoons’ colourway too!
