I am a collector!

When Kyle and I got married I decided that I wanted to start a collection of some sort. I'm not really into dolls so I knew that was out and I think thimbles are weird. haha. I finally decided that I wanted to collect Spoons. 

I have been lucky enough that family members have sent me spoons from their travels. Kyle even got me a spoon from Haiti (it is literally a dinner spoon that was run over, he brought it home in a ziploc bag covered in hand sanitizer). As of right now I have 97 spoons, I keep a spreadsheet so I know where I have spoons from and how many. 


In the house we are currently in I have no wall space to hang my spoons cases up but once we move they will be going up. They are too cool not to display. For now they are sitting in a box collected dust. Boo!

My sister tells me that I'm like an 80 year old lady with my collection lol. 





I took these pictures when we were still in NC and I have added several spoons since then. 

I hope I can keep this collection going, thanks to the Army I don't think that will be a problem. Feel free to get my info and send me spoons haha just kidding. :)

Have a great day!

  3. My grandma collected spoons while my grandpa was active duty in the Air Force. It's really cool to see the ones she found while they were overseas. Mac and I keep talking about how we need to start collecting something, haha.

  6. We had an RV growing up and I collected spoons from every state that we visited! I don't have as many as you, but I have been to each place I have one from. Kinda fun to collect something, huh? It seems the only thing I collect right now is dirty diapers in this household. :)

  14. Aww man, I had some spoons that someone had given me, but I got rid of them a few months ago. I wish I had known, I would have given them to you for your collection!
