Birthday Gift

My Mom's birthday is coming up. It's gotten to the point where she really doesn't NEED anything, but I like to give her SOMETHING to make her feel special and remembered - so I bought some spoons at the thrift store - hammered them flat - then stamped sayings on them using my set of metal alphabet stamps.



She lives in a condo with a very small patio - but it is overflowing inside and out with plants and flowers of every description - so I think she'll enjoy putting these little stakes into her pots.



Wish I had her green thumb, but our yard (and consequently our house) is too shady to grow flowers with much luck....

What a wonderful gift! They look fantastic...they are useful...they are made by hand. Can't get any better than that! Happy Birthday to Gayle's mom!
Is it hard to hammer those letters into the spoon?
