Junkin' Monday Finds

I found some interesting things this weekend. Above is something I picked up because of the interesting scene embossed on it. I had no idea what it was. After a lot of research, I learned it is a silver spoon cup. The scene is a 17th century village, gathered for a snake oil salesman.
The scene shows the villagers listening to the pitch, and it shows the others who have already taken the "treatment" who are being wheeled off in carts. It is very detailed.
I also found this darling gingerbread man cutting board.
A pot that will be perfect for an herb plant next year.
It has lion faces on either side, and is quite worn.
Last, this adorable green eye cat ceramic figure, that is covering one eye with it's paw.
Another successful week!
