Don't you love the silver fish tongs (for sugar), and this cheery little Inuit tooth-topped spoon?
A happy chappy. I didn't buy him so I don't feel any guilt about the tooth's former owner.
I only meant to post about the physical juxtapositions of this display but it struck me today that our life is full of juxtapositions too: illness and operations (Son 1's knee again), sweet gestures of affection, exhaustion and concerns, beauty and blessings.I think that in the past I spent too much time 'getting through' the hard times. I didn't notice that, juxtaposed with them, were sweet and beautiful times. Now I think that looking at those beautiful times is what's meant to give us strength to deal with the tricky parts of life.
