Russian Spoon Carving

Family carving spoons in Russia, early 1900s

Today is Buy Nothing Day. Why don’t you celebrate and Make Something instead? Follow the example of these Russian folks around the year 1900, for example. Their spoon carving operation is a family business, and their wares are brought into the bustling town in huge, brimming baskets. I love these great photos. It’s sad that you would never see something like this today.

One can hope, though. Click ahead to see more sweet spoon carving photos from early 20th century Russia.
