Spoons for Cosmetic Coloured Powders

Spoons for Cosmetic Coloured Powders

Ancient Alien Cutlery? Nope, not really.

The picture above is what it says in the title: “Spoons for Cosmetic Coloured Powders”. They are toiletry items from Egyptian civilisation, New Kingdom.

So it seems they needed some serious cutlery to scoop out all that makeup they wore back in the day. Kinda crazy but good looking design on these spoons. I think they would be great on the table for serving out spices and salt and pepper and the like.

Thanks to my sister Pam for the pic!


Thanksgiving Deluxe Cutlery Holders

Thanksgiving Deluxe Cutlery Holders

Happy Thanksgiving! Everyone needs these cute little cutlery holders. It’s got a turkey on it that is saying “Gobble Gobble”! You know everyone at the dining room table will be chanting that for a significant part of the meal.

This is a pack of 24 flatware holders for everyone’s knife, fork and spoon. Let’s be clear though that these are made of paper. So it’s a nice take home gift as well. Or at the least they are recycleable.

Disturbing Double Spoon Rest

Double Spoon Rest

This is a spoon rest for two. Spoon rests are very handy for keeping cutlery from creating a total mess of your work top. It’s a fine flatware accessorey that isn’t a multi-tasker but still handy.

But this one is rather disturbing. It has numerous visual references to human anatomy that shouldn’t be stated out loud.

They are stainless steel so that’s nice.

Was happens in the kitchen stays in the kitchen. Sort of.

What do you call this? A Spoodle?


Inquiring cutlery minds really want to know. Is that a ladel? Is this a spoon? What sort of kitchen utensil is it?

The most common we have heard is Spoodle. Which is ladel plus spoon. Make sense to us. What do you think?

And more importantly, what is it used for?
