Eve of Joy Etsy Shop Review and Giveaway

One talent in life that I wish I possessed was craftiness.  I'm always in awe of anyone who can decorate cakes, paint, draw, and design.  Having those kind of talents amazes me and makes me wish I had them as well.  There's nothing like people putting their talents to good use and making others smile.  Even though I'm not talented in the design department myself, I do love owning work by people who are.



Eve of Joy is an Etsy shop ran by owner Kelly.  The shop offers an assortment of whimsical items with lots of personality made from up-cycled vintage silverware.  Each piece is unique and has a history of its own. Whether you're looking for hand-stamped silverware, magnets, or even windchines, Kelly has you covered and offers lots more.  You can see the love and dedication that goes into each piece she creates.  Anything from Eve of Joy would make a special gift for the person who has it all, not to mention it's a great conversation piece.

Since I'm getting married in just a mere 9 days, I wanted something special and handmade to bring to the wedding.  I don't currently have anything that is truly handmade.  I browsed Kelly's shop and settled on the Mr. and Mrs. Wedding Forks.   I thought these were so unique and very cool.  They are a much better choice than the silverware I'd be using at the wedding! 

This incredibly romantic matching set of vintage silver plated forks is the perfect way to share your wedding cake, your first dinner as husband or wife, your anniversary, you name it! This is a lovely present or keepsake and a reminder of your special moments together.  It is perfect for cake and table photos too! Each set is hand-stamped with Mr. and Mrs. on it.  No two sets are like, and they will be polished to a bright shine before being sent. 

As soon as I saw this set, I fell in love with it.  What a cool idea.  My set came in a pretty brown box with brown string tied around it.  It felt very rustic, like the theme of Kelly's shop.  The forks were very shiny and gleamed in the light.  There was a pretty pattern on the handles.  The stamp was done very well and was clear and easy to see.  

My fiance thought the forks were extremely cool and couldn't wait to use them at the wedding.  This will certainly be a change from the ordinary silverware that everyone will be using that night.  I can't wait to use them!

If you're looking for a fantastic present for your wife for your upcoming anniversary, why not surprise her with these? They are extremely thoughtful and meaningful.

  6. Every day of a marriage is making a commitment to one another. It doesn't take a wedding to give one another a special gift. :)

  37. These are very cute! I'd like to win them because my 1 Year Anniversary is coming up. My husband & I waited almost 7 years before tying the knot. We don't have anything personalized like this & I really think he'd get a kick out of these! Oh my gosh - I'd wait until our Anniversary & use them while we eat our special celebration dinner as a surprise.
