Spoon tales

Once upon time there were six nice spoons. For many years they lived in their family and served it. They were not simple kitchen spoons for daily use. They were only for special occasions, for guests. They were used together only with the best china. But time passed and fashion changed and first they were put in the deepest corner of the draw, then in the box and stacked between other old things on the attic. But then house was sold and new owners gave them to the street vendor. Many days spoons laid  in the rain and sun  on the table and hoped for a new better life. It came, but not for spoons as spoons, but for spoons as material for jewelry. And now they have a new life, they are shining earrings waiting to make some women happy. These are not simple earrings, these are earnings with never told story.
