When you look into the deep side a spoon, you appear to be upside down because the light particles that reach the spoon reflect in different angles, reversing the image inside. This happens because the spoon is not completely flat, and the curves create such an effect.

Why is it if you look at a spoon on one side your right side up and if you flip it over your up side down?

Well, a spoon is designed to hold liquids and if it is has the mouth of the spoon bowl pointing up so that it CAN hold liquid is is the right side up (in terms of its use). Consequently if that is the right side up then if you turn it over it will be, by definition, up side down.
