Weird and Wacky: cool cruets

strange ant cruet set

I used to collect cruets.  I had some shaped like fruit, peppers even bags of flour.  Cruets have got a lot more innovative and adventurous since I started collecting.  These ant ones can be used on a picnic.  Somehow, I don’t think the real ants would come anywhere near if these saw these giants  ant watchdogs 🙂

This unusual ring from Chao & Eero Jewel is known as a Spiced lady ring.  Not only is it a piece of jewelry, it can hold spices or salt, pepper to be added to food as you cook.  There’s a touch of the Lucrezia Borgia about this I think.  What fun though 🙂

These ‘batteries’ are also a  cruet set.  They are known as Salt and Pepper Cell and are exactly like a D size  battery  in dimension.  They are made of stainless steel and glass with power indicators on the side  tell you about how much spice you have left before its time to refill.  Available in Red and Turquoise and Black and White.  Different!
