WEEKEND REFLECTIONS--the baby cup and spoon

This silver baby cup and spoon belonged both to my mother and then to me.  Underneath when I return to Belgrade will be engraved little Mila's name and year born.  You can see me in the spoon....

This is a charming tradition! You've inspired me to dig my own silver baby cup out of the china closet and polish it up (though it's not as dent-free and pristine as yours).

What a special thing! That is wonderful that you still have it! Sadly, I have no idea where my children's cups are! Too many moves...

I love this cup and spoon and how special that you can pass it down to Mila, a beautiful heirloom full of memories.

Bises,

How sweet! Family keepsakes are so important. I'm sure one day she'll treasure it just as you have.
