Pineapple filled cookies and silver spoons

Thanks to wonderful family and friends I seemed to have started a spoon collection! Colleen brought this very pretty, detailed one back from England during the year.

My friend Sal gave me this lovely one many years ago.

And Les recently bought this sifter sugar spoon online, Anne.
