Here is one I'm including because it was so beautiful, but, I think, a little sacrilegious. Also, it is not very practical because how many people have a baby grand piano just lying around?
This one was not part of the email chain, but is one that I use personally. It is a melted wine bottle that is used as a spoon rest. Actually, the one my sister gave me is even better than this one because it is divided into three sections, so there is room to lay two or three different spoons (which I find often happens in my kitchen where there might be multiple things cooking at once).
