Are your cupboards like mine, pieced together with some of your mom's, some of your grand mom's and maybe that dear friend's pieces?
Mismatched silver utensils to help pad out your own contemporary ones?
But I'd like to focus on the old butter knife. Flatter than any other, wider than any other and feels perfect in your hand. The knife you want when it's time for a peanut butter sandwich. The knife you will look high and low for if you can't find it. The knife that you hope will never age so much that you would have to get rid of it. Best butter knife ever.
