We are still moving and unpacking boxes.
Have you ever tried to explain to your spouse why you moved (and stored for two years) several plastic totes filled to the brim with old mismatched and tarnished silverware? And then asked sweetly if he would carry said totes up two flights of stairs to your craft storage space? We've had several moments like this in recent weeks. My husband asked what in the world I was going to do with all those tubs of spoons, and I have to confess, I felt a bit overwhelmed by them myself! Just what will I do with all those spoons?
Here are a few ideas.
LOVE, love, these key fobs from VintageWeave.
Or how about a mini-vase to tuck tiny blossoms into?
I love the idea of using vintage spoons for a coat rack.order one similar to this from Etsy.
You might try making some plant markers (or place cards)!
See the full tutorial from Christina at Intimate Weddings.
You can try your hand at creating a chandelier from vintage silverware

I'm in love with these cheese markers from VintageWeave.
I hope you found some inspiration -- I know I did!
