EDM Challenge #94

The last Everyday Matters Challenge was to draw a spoon. I had 2 candidates that I really couldn't choose between, so I did them both.

One year out of the blue, for Chistmas my dad gave my SO and I a set of silverware. I was 22 at the time, and it seemed a bit of an odd gift. It wasn't as if I had been hinting that we needed anything like that. It got stored a few years until we moved out of the apartment we had been sharing with another couple into our own place. Granted it is very nice silverware, with a bit of a heft that took some getting used to. It has come to grow on me. In the upper left corner is one of the tablespoons from that set.

In the lower right corner is one of the serving spoons I got in a set of black plastic cooking and serving utensils from my mom when I first got interested in cooking back in middle school. She was never a really big cook, so when I took an interest we really needed more of these basics. They have served me long and well, although the original upright utensil holder has long ago disappeared, and they have lived everywhere I have ever since.
