The Daily Spoon #16 – #MonthoftheSpoon

In celebration of the Spoons of our life–ubiquitous but often unrecognized–Blue Towel Productions is proud to present the Daily Spoon, which we were are celebrating this September, the Month of the Spoon. #MonthoftheSpoon

Continuing on from yesterday, today we return to Helga (wife of My Friend Rod) and the spoons of Norway!

The Daily Spoon #16c

The second spoon, that also bears my name, is of the wooden variety.

Growing up we had a wooden spoon that had belonged to my grandmother hanging on the kitchen wall. It had a nice pattern, and also had her name burned onto it. Since I am named after her, I thought as a child that it was mine, and was quite disappointed that I could not play with it.

The Daily Spoon #16b

Years later, my younger brother had woodworking class in school, and he must have remembered my desire for this spoon. So he very kindly made me a spoon and burned my name onto it.

The Daily Spoon #16a

It is a much valued possession. Like my other spoon, it has traveled the world with me and is often (but with great care) used in the kitchen.


It’s nice to have spoons that makes you think of the people you love!

How cool is that, right?  Thanks so much, Helga, for sharing you spoon stories!

Join us tomorrow for more spoon-related musings here in the Month of the Spoon and the Daily Spoon, from Blue Towel Productions!
