Wooden Spoons: Almost Too Pretty To Use

I don't think there's such a thing as having too many wooden spoons. They're useful, long lasting, and lovely when put on display. Here are a few particularly special ones:

Pictured above:

1. Wooden Spoons, $10 and up from Live Wire Farm: Handcrafted from hardwoods grown in Jacksonville, Vermont. The wood is cut, naturally dried for 24 months, then crafted into its final shape.
2. Painted Spoons, $30 from Milk Farm Road: Vintage wooden spoons that have been updated with painted handles. I spotted these beauties on a recent House Tour.
3. 2 TBSP, $38 from Spoonmaker: Handcarved from hardwood, you can cook, measure and serve with these spoons.
4. Olivewood Mixing Spoon, $12 from Brook Farm General Store: Olivewood mixing spoon for cooking, baking and tasting. Made in Spain.
