    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?


    I'm not going to claim this because there are others who would want it more.

    But, I love your idea of drawing a name out of a hat. Next time I give something away, I think I'll collect names up to a certain time, and then draw names if there is enough interest.

    It's a great idea. The vintage textile board used to do it. I got rid of a lot of needlework and crotchet items that way a win win for everyone.

    Fig, If you want, you can still do that with the jewelry.
    I'm sure there were others that would like the jewels as well. :)

    Yes, it is a sardine fork. Also useful for stabbing smelts and anchovies. :) Love the fish design!

    Yes what a cool fork. I'd use it for pickled herring.

    I searched sardine fork on Google, because I have never heard of one and ran across this interesting History of The Fork at

    Congrats Greg. :cat: Funny, today my one daughter gave me a Sheffield SP sardine and knife fork, the handles are beautiful porcelain handles with gold outlines, my first ever sardine set :)
