Silver Sunday - Silver Spoons Garden Markers


Today I am joining Beth over at Gypsy Fish Journal for Silver Sunday!

I thought I would show pictures of the cutest Garden Markers I have made out of old silver spoons.
The letters are hand stamped (using a hammer) with jewelers alphabet letters and then you use black markers to fill inside! The silver spoons can be found at flea markets and garage sales.

Oh my goodness! This is the greatest thing I've seen in a very long time. I can also see them used in tablescapes with names on them...Girl.. you are soooo creative. Would love to have the talent to do this... Thought I would share with you , mother would have been 81 today.. I lost her in 1987. What a comfort she would be to me now with Mr. P going through all he's going through. I'm so glad you still have your mother and can share your thoughts and dreams with her.. many many hugs ~lynne~

Oh I love these! I keep seeing stamped silver and want to try it but can't justify buying one more art supply until I use more of what I already own! They must look so cool in your garden. ~ Theresa

Now we just need to find some jewelers letters. Where did you ever get those?

Mimi Sue said...

Wonderful idea. I already have the spoons and stamps. Now I need to find the time! Your pink pigs are the cutest. Mimi

Kathy said...

Those are incredible, Anne! I would LOVE to make some but I wouldn't have the slightest idea where to get the jewelers tools!
Wonderful Silver Sunday post!
xoxo...Kathy

Ohhhhh..... I NEED some! Cute!

Sherrie said...

How timely I just saw your post. Last night I was reading the new Country Living and saw knives being used as garden markers, engraved the same way. I was trying to figure out how the letters were done. Thank you for sharing.

Gypsy Fish said...

Thanks for playing along...See you next Sunday for season 2 and the SS giveaway reveal.

Just the cutest! ~ Angela

These markers are so nice!! I have seen them before and thought about making some, but was not sure how to do it. Others have already asked, but can you let us know where you got the jeweler's stamps? Maybe one day you can do a post letting us know exactly how to make them. :)

Thanks,
~~Anne
