Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins {Crosby & Taylor Pewter Measuring Spoons Giveaway}

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins {Crosby & Taylor Pewter Measuring Spoons Giveaway} from addapinch.com

Family heirlooms are my most prized possessions. Lovely and worn pieces handed down from my husband’s family as well as my own make their place in my home. From my Daddy’s watch, my Grandmother’s handwritten recipes, to my husband’s great-great Grandparent’s table, threads of their lives are now intricately woven into the fabric of our days.

In our fast-paced world, it’s a bit hard to imagine the items that will one day become heirlooms from my life. There are a few treasures though that should easily withstand time with just a bit of love and care – the table my husband made with his own hands for our 10th wedding anniversary, jewelry he’s given me throughout our marriage, our family Bible I was given on our wedding day, and pewter pieces I have been given from my mother and mother-in-law immediately come to mind.

When the lovely people from Crosby & Taylor contacted me about hosting a giveaway for pewter measuring spoons, I felt that their heart shone through as I read their history and values. But when I received their package and opened it, I was absolutely blown away. I could see the love and passion for their craft in every single inch.

As I’ve found every possible reason to be in my kitchen cooking since I received my measuring spoons, I’ve been thinking about how my son will one day remember our measuring out vanilla for his favorite chocolate chip waffles or these lemon poppy seed muffins as he reaches for these spoons with his own children.
