Her gran had come from the Midwest.

About a year after immigrating to the United States, Gran's father had been given twenty five acres to homestead in Bartlesville, Oklahoma.

That's where gran grew up.

Among the wheat fields and the oil wells.

Gran had passed away nearly 10 years ago now.

And all that was left of Bartlesville was a silver souvenir spoon that she used in the sugar bowl gran had given her one Christmas.

*In reality, Bartlesville still exists and is doing just fine.

    That silver spoon holds so much more than sugar... YAM xx

  2. 25 acres is a nice piece of land !!! and the workmanship on the spoon is amazing... ☺☺♥♥
