Homework – Jam On!


Applied Kim’s ‘kk_likeadream preset’.

Last week’s Be Still 52 homework assignment was spoon(s). I instantly thought of this lovely spoon gifted to me by my dear friend Barbara Hurst. Isn’t it just wonderful! I love the vintage look of the handle, the slight point at the tip, and of course the “jam on” phrase. It is both elegant and whimsical at the same time. Makes me smile.

Rather than using a napkin or tea towel, I decided to bring out one of my quilts to tuck into the scene.


The biscuits I made specifically for this still life – which I of course promptly ate afterwards!


Wishing you a “jam on” kind of day!

Thanks for stopping by.

    I spotted your IG post, so popped on over to look at the rest of the photos… lovely! The red and white quilt sets off the red jam so beautifully, and I love the beadboard. The beautiful spoon is the Everlasting pattern, first made in 1949. It’s one of my favorites.
