The lilliputians have arrived!

WE have some great names already entered ! The contest is running until September 6th so keep them coming! Remember, it is for the SHAPE not the design or color of the forks.

Our new smaller forks called the lilliputians are here! They are adorable and sturdy,same great quality you know and love but smaller(the picture on the left is a lilliputian 2 tine)! Originally i wanted a line a of forks that really stand out, like the hair decorations in early 1900's...but we had so many request for smaller sizes we decided to just make our entire line shrunk down to lilliputians!! So now you can have either at Grah-Toe Studio!

As a note to lift the level of love in the world,

Psalm 59:16 But I will sing of your strength,in the morning I will sing of your love;for you are my fortress ,my refuge in times of trouble.

I pray you all have a blessed and joyful day, full of peace and creative fun!

Thank you for your creative entries and keep them coming! we look forward to picking the winners!

On a note for more love in this world..here are a few love quotes.
The word "love" has many meanings. In describing the enjoyment of ice cream some would say, "I love butter pecan." And in describing their deepest and most intimate feelings some would say, "I love my fiancée." Love is a little word with lots of implications

Love is too large, too deep ever to be truly understood or measured or limited within the framework of words. M. Scott Peck

Love talked about can easily be turned aside, but love demonstrated is irresistible. W. Stanley Mooneyhan

Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread, remade all the time, made new. Ursula K. Le Guin

Acting in kind and loving ways causes us to experience kind and loving feelings Stephen Covey

Love is that splendid triggering of human vitality...the supreme activity which nature affords anyone for going out of himself toward someone else. Ortega Y Gasset

And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians 13:13
