Altered chopping board name plate

Hi Friends!

Detail shots

Check out the altered spoon.painted it gold and brown to give antique look.add crackle accents to the sticker and a few beads.

The chopping board before it was subjected to my idiosyncrasies
Hope you all are fine.I have quit my job and I am settling down in Pune (finally) with my kids.There is a lot of crafting going on in my craft room right now and that is keeping me sane.I am sharing an altered/ upcycled craft with you today.Made a name plate for a dear friend who shares my is going all the way to Goa and I hope she likes it.She has shifted into a new house and has been looking for nameplates but couldn't pick any coz none caught her fancy.thats why I am a bit nervous about this one.The four birds symbolize the family.The papa ,mama and the little girls in their house.I chose chopping board and spoon and some cutlery embellies because she is an avid cook and I presume her house is full of  delicious aromas at all points of time
I was extremely inspired by the current challenge at Beyond Grey challenges and happy that I finally managed to make something suitable.I hope it is shabby/ vintage enough for the challenge.I made something for the flowerfull challenge too but my Internet connection was playing funny and so couldn't post it on time.
Anyway this is already a long post and I also have a picture heavy post so would like to stop my rambling here.
Thanks for passing by.
P.S.- I am having problems posting comments on your blogs.Can anyone tell me why? Its funny .I type my comment and enter / publish and it is completely gone .No idea what is happening.
