Here is something that my mum made that I thought would be apreciated here. Its some wind chimes made from some silver spoons Mum bought at a recycling centre. She flattened them with a hammer on an anvil (yes, we have an anvil) and Dad drilled some holes for her. Then she tied them to a piece of an old picture frame. Isn't it a great idea? And it makes a really nice tinkling noise!

Here is the picture!


Enjoy, and please give some feedback!

ps. my mum is cool

I have some friends that started a fake catholic sect for Renaissance Faires here in the states. They are a group of "monks" who call themselves the brotherhood of the spoon. They use spoons for everything, lots of deporative spoon things, even a hand turned "spoon" staff. Mostly they just run around faire drunk as can be. I think they would love this more than words can say!

That looks great--the only thing I would do is put some decorative gems or something on the spoons, so that they would reflect light as well.

Ah, I love this.  My grandpa made spoon windchimes for my family, instead of a piece of wood though he used a fork, with each prong? of the fork bent in a different direction, and hung the spoons off of that.  I love the way they sound

I have some made of forks, spoons and butter knieves that I bought in Pennsylvania ... I like your mother's better. I like that they are hanging in a straight line, as opposed to a circular pattern (like mine). Tell your mom they are really great  Grin!
