Do you not want that one? Too expensive? I use a small ceramic dish that used to contain a camembert.

I googled and found lots on Etsy.

Pretty well any kitchen shop - if only they were open!

Lots of different ones on eBay by the looks.

We have a teapot shaped one that we put the teabags and spoon on. Must have bought it from a supermarket or similar. A bit like this

I've seen them in wilkos, sainsburys, M&S, The Range

I'd be happy to pay £13 for the one on the website I've linked to because it's gorgeous, but I wouldn't pay the £17 to have it shipped from the USA. No offence to anyone, but I don't want the teapot shaped ones that you get everywhere and are really meant for the old teabag. I want something quirky that is literally just for the teaspoon.

I agree with a previous poster, try Etsy

I googled it. Even B& M do them but I expect these ones are everywhere. grin I'd treat myself to that first one if you like it. Hang the cost.

Why does a teaspoon need a rest?!

Oblomov20 Thu 31-Dec-20 16:40:46

They all seem very big, as if meant for tea bags. The OP was very small and seemed only to fit a tea-spoon.

Palavah Thu 31-Dec-20 16:40:57

I also don't understand this.

iklboo Thu 31-Dec-20 16:48:40

Ones like this?

Search on Etsy for “coffee spoon rest” (rattan than teaspoon, which I think gives you the larger tea bag style ones). Like this: www.etsy.com/uk/listing/858366378/mustard-herringbone-ceramic-spoon-rest

Hi! I’m a potter, if you like I can make you one like that? It would take me five minutes at the end of a batch of other things. Don’t want paid for it, but realistically, now my kids are all of school, your looking at three or four weeks from now before I get it twice through kiln. Happy to spread some cheer in these times.
Let me know if you want it!

peridito Thu 31-Dec-20 17:33:18

Ah ,that's such a kind ,thoughtful post .Made my day!

“Why does a teaspoon need a rest?”

..........

Well if you spent your life getting into hot water and stirring things up you’d need a rest occasionally!

IBelieveInAThingCalledScience Thu 31-Dec-20 17:35:55

Oh that is such a lovely offer!

On a separate note, how great must it be to be able to just "throw" utilitarian and beautiful objects together?

Sorry, but I'm another one wondering exactly why such a thing is needed! Use the spoon for whatever then throw it in the sink, dishwasher or leave it on the worktop for next time? Same with tea-bags - why does it have to live somewhere special?

Just use a ramekin.
