We LOVE Salt and Pepper Shakers

First of all I would like to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful mother, Laura!  We will show you one of the things I got her.  Recently we have been quite obsessed with vintage salt and pepper shakers.  When my mom (Laura) was a little girl, her grandmother had a salt and pepper shaker collection and she would admire it every time she went there.  We decided to start a collection of our own!  We also have been trying to find ones that her grandmother had, and we have found a few on the internet that her grandmother had in her collection.  We haven't had any luck in finding any at the thrifts.  Although we aren't in any rush to find a bunch because the hunt is always fun!  We have a set of three so far, which is a great start!  We want to show you of course!  The cute little doggies are one thing that I got my mom for her Birthday!  Aren't they adorable??

Not this Monday but the following Monday we are going to Philadelphia's Longwood Gardens for their Christmas display.  We have never been there but we always wanted to go (we are very excited!).  We are going with some family and friends (a girl's day out!).  We are also stopping at antique shops along the way, we can't wait!  Perhaps we will find another set?!

Have a great weekend,
Laura and Michele

They are so cute! I love anything vintage, too. I guess because I am vintage and that stuff just brings back really good memories. Lol My grandmother collected them, too. She had over 200 sets when she passed away. They gave some back to the known gifters, the rest went to auction. I didn't get any.:( (I didn't live near her. They do still give me warm feelings though.

I love your finds. My grandmother collected them too. My cousin ended up with them cause she had started her collection because of Meme. I enjoyed reading thru your blog. Your friend Veronica does marvelous things with twigs. I like the arbor. Have a blessed Thanksgiving. Lady Jane

If you have been to my site, you know that I love vintage salt and pepper shakers, too! Those are really cute, I think I have the bluebird ones, and the little skunks are adorable. I just can't pass them up when I see them at yard sales and thrift stores for 25 - 50 cents each.
