The Spoon Girls

Mostly, this is a post to show you some Highly Awesome Photographs from my family (mom’s side of the family).

My great-grandmother (Mae; second from the left, back row), and a bunch of her friends were such good friends that they each bought twelve silver spoons engraved with their names, and traded, leaving each girl with a set of silver spoons. I have these spoons now; they hang close to my writing desk.

These ladies also left a handful of fantastic photos, which I feel compelled to share with you here. It seems so rare to see ladies of this era having fun — but look. Look. They are just like us.
