Congratulations to Tonie Ervin, the winner of the 2012 “Just Smack Me!” Spoon Decorating Contest!
The images are based off of engravings from a Brothers’ Grimm story about Holda/Perchta. ”Qui parcit virge, odit filium” is wood burned around the handle of the spoon. If you talked about entering this contest but didn’t, then your parents probably “Qui parcit virge, odit filium” with you–hence your laziness! Happy Yuletide!
