Silver Sunday

OK, this is my first time participating in this, so I hope I do it right. I purchased a silver bowl at a garage sale today, and then thought about these salt cellars (below) and then thought of the Silver Sunday posts.
Like I said these are salt cellars (I didn't know that when I first saw them, I just thought they were cute), I bought them at a garage sale earlier in the summer for $1.00 each, so a total of $3.00, spoons included.
Here's the bowl I bought today for $1.00.
Here's the bowl from the top looking down, it measures about 3.5" across and about 2 1/4" tall.
Here's a close up of the salt cellars, they are actually little glass bowls in these silver colored bottoms, I don't think they're actually silver, I think they're pewter or something. On two of the three the glass bowls come out, I think the third one's just stuck, they measure 2" tall and about 2" wide at the widest point around the middle.
And here are the cute little spoons which are about 3" long. I know they're real silver. I honestly have no idea what I'm going to do with them, but I guess I got a good deal as I was reading on someone's blog the other day how she was having a hard time finding just the spoons at a reasonable price, I don't recall whose blog this was, so if it's yours let me know, and I'll link to you.

Anyways, that's my silver sunday post, a little early as I'm going up north for the weekend.

Those are really neat...I would have no clue what they are but I love the detail on them.

I think salt cellar spoons are very hard to find. They were small and easily lost. Check eBay for prices. Salt cellars were a popular collectible at one time, don't know if that is still true or not. They are sweet and you'll probably think of some creative way to use them. Good garage sale find!
