This is a decorative spoon rack displaying some of the most lovely, fun, educational, travel visits. Each spoon has a family story within itself. We did not have money to buy expensive items, nor placing all of them in sight to enjoy over the years. My children would look through the spoons on display and pick out the one they thought represented our adventure. They still pick a spoon and would tell the story to their children. I enjoy watching and listening to their memories and grandchildren's interest. I placed a few items on the shelves that are special memories to me, like the bell from my sisters wedding, and the statues when we were in NYC.
