Leftovers



The Mr and I do a pretty good job of using up our silverware.......except for the knives......we have piles and more piles.....we even offer to leave them behind when we buy the silverware sets......

Thanks to a horrible bout of the flu I had lots of couch time and pinterest. I love the Internet and the wealth of ideas it can spark!  I found knife bells and got to thinking about my thimbles ding....ding....ding...it's time to start chopping off those knives!


I had the Mr cut them off in various lengths and then I went to work......

Oh, those piles of knives.......they will be getting smaller!  We are off to Peeps......they tell me my table is in need of some new lovelies.....such wonderful customers we have in Mt Pleasant.
We are planning on a junking day for the long weekend......oh what might I find!!

  4. Kim, you always come up with such beautiful ideas. And these are perfect if you already had a beautiful stash of old knives. Not that I thought that the knives were solid, but I never really pictured them to be hollow like that - just perfect for little bells. Are they for sale??

  5. kim,
    i cant beleive you are making these !! i made very similar at the end of show season last year....but used a fork tine for the dinger..no beading...
    too cute !!!
    why is it that when we think we have such an original idea, we find out that there are so many others just as creative as we are ???
    love the beads....great idea...
