We were at dinner the other night with Craig Wiebe, one of our oldest and dearest friends, and he had a little story to tell…he asked if I remembered that he had given our Measuring Cups and Spoons to one of his best childhood buddies over 20 years ago. And, of course I did! We were still relatively new in business back then and I had probably personally delivered those pieces to Craig.
This buddy recently moved and the very first thing that he put up in his new kitchen were his Cups and Spoons. He was so excited that he immediately sent a photo to Craig – who then shared it with us, of course.
Here is what I love about this photo:
-his Measuring Cups and Spoons were the FIRST thing to go up in his kitchen (notice there is nothing in those cupboards or on that counter NOR has he finished painting – witness the stripped window trim)
-he found a way to fit them in a narrow space
-he has FISH spoons and CELTIC cups – things don’t always need to be “matchy-matchy”
-he obviously enjoys the warm patina that they have developed over the years (since he has opted to NOT polish them or send them back to us for our “spa treatment”)
Also please note: Back then, the Cup bowls were much thinner with a copper core!
Needless to say, it makes me really proud to see that these Cups and Spoons are still being loved and used 20+ years later.
