Another spoon fairy

I had so much fun making the other spoon fairy doll that I made another one a few days ago. This is a smaller spoon which didn't have the holes drilled in the top or the handle, so I just wrapped the wire around, adding beads as I went. I think I even like it better this way! I just used vintage images from the Internet, but my friend liked these so much that she made three for her daughter-in-law's birthday using black and white copies of photos of her three grandchildren. And for the little boy she used leaves instead of the flower petals. They came out really cute -- what a special gift!
