I started with 48 teaspoons 10 years ago (two 60-piece sets). This is what I have left! I still have plenty of knives, forks and tablespoons!
Where did they go? Well, no one is talking.
The cost of replacing them with the same pattern (now discontinued by Oneida) is over $2.50 each. Ouch and ain't gonna happen!
Fortunately I have a set of my MIL's silver for the holidays, so it's everyday flatware that's the problem.
I have a solution, however!
I picked up 12 from a antique mall I like. I love the old mixed matched look and the fact that they were only 50 cents to a dollar each.
No two are the same, but they have a similar feel. I think they're from the 40s and 50s. I like them so much, I think I'm going back for more. And maybe forks... knives and tablespoons.
Uh oh, I fee a new collection coming on.
I hope there are no black holes in your spoon drawers.
