We saw a series of these lovely spoons at a local gallery, and they immediately conjured up memories of helping to polish our grandmother's silverware, setting tables, and sharing that last bite of dessert at a table full of friends and family.  It's always amazing how something so simple, like this one single elegant image, can  bring up so many complex feelings and associations.
