What Are They?

Last week I picked up this little set for $2.  
When I asked the lady the price, she said, 
"Do you even know what they are?"

I told her what I thought.......
and turned out to be right!  
She told me I was the first person all day 
who knew what they were for.

How about you?  Can you guess?

I hope you came back!

Here is what they are for.

Were you correct?
I knew you would know!

Aren't they pretty for a buffet?
And only $2!

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. I'm not sure I would have guessed - but I am definitely not that high class. But I LOVED the thinking music - it made me giggle :)

  2. I love those! They would be great to display mismatched vintage silver pieces too.

  3. I wouldn't have guessed--but how cool!

  4. Initially I thought for napkins - so no I didn't guess right but I would love to find a set of these at a garage sale. I recently found a full 12 place setting of ornate silver plated cutlery hiding inside a plastic bag at a garage sale. They deserve to be on display on a buffet not hidden away in a drawer! Have been looking out for my church pew at a auction centre that used to have lots of pews, no luck but found a set of 4 cedar windows in perfect condition with leadlights - they are fully opaque rather than coloured so 2 will be used in our bathroom.

  5. I got a text from my sister that just said, "Toast"! I thought, "What????!!!" Thinking perhaps she was supposed to have sent this to her husband or something. No! She was reading my blog and that was her guess. Crazy girl.

  6. These are great Ellie! I had absolutely no idea what they were. Thank you for sharing.

  7. They are very pretty, and your cost is even prettier.

  8. How wonderful...I never would have guessed they will be so much fun to use. So pretty!

  9. Hi Ellie, I thought they were for holding toast. Wrong!!! What a beautiful way to display your silverware, especially for some special occasion. I found and am now following you through Show And Tell Friday, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
