Collecting Tea Time Spoons



Collecting Tea Time Spoons is part of the tea lover's pleasure. Displayed on antique lace below are spoons for measuring loose tea, spoons for granulated sugar and cubed sugar and spoons for just about anything!

Antique malls around America are loaded with unique small silver plate and sterling silver spoons. I have no problems using a spoon for something other than it's originally designed task. You may not agree to that- you'll have to sort that rule out for yourself!

You might like to keep some out on display with your other tea things in a creamer.

You can enhance this with an old vintage hanky!

Open your buffet drawers and see what treasures may await you inside...perhaps something grandmother gave you!

You have some lovely spoons. Thanks for the reminder. I sometimes forget I have some spoons tucked away.

I have seen spoons like that at antique stores and wondered what they were for and now I know. They are beautiful and now I must see if I can find some for my house!
Thanks for sharing that bit of information with us.

Great ideas for displaying tea spoons. I keep most of mine in an old, cut glass vase. They are as pretty as flowers!
