Spoons







The bottom photo shows a recent haul of mixed spoons etc from the tip - all gleaned from one old battered tin. I love interesting spoons! Nothing precious here, mainly EPNS, but they don't have to be. The top one is a tiny, tiny salt spoon I've put into my new glass salt cellar on the kitchen table. The second one is a spoon for a tea caddy - it bears the legend "tea revives you" - how very, very true LOL. It's in my caddy now.The two other objects in the last photo are juicers - you screw them into a lemon to get the juice out apparently; I need to have a go with them to see how they perform, could be interesting. I'm not sure what the other object is, sitting up between the juicers; it has a mesh filter over one end, so obviously strains something, but I'm not sure what.
Nice finds, I thought.

very nice. I have a few tiny spoons, i'll show you next time you are here sarah, tiny salt or mustard spoons.

Love the teaspoon, and its wise words!

The spoons are lovely. I'm glad they have found a new home.

What a find! I love the tea caddy spoon (2nd picture), I haven't seen one of those for years.

Be still my beating heart LOL! I *love* cutlery and have a lot of it, including some tiny spoons that live in my (small) collection of mustard pots. I always make English mustard from powder, because my Dad did. Always exciting to find things like these :-)
