i have a real love of old salt and peppers shakers..i do not like to pay much for them, just around $1 dollar or so, if i just have to have it, maybe $2 or $3...but usually just a buck....well these shakers hold another part of one of my collections, my button collection..i just love old buttons, especially ones that still have bits of the thread still on then & my favorite ~the white buttons..

What a fun way to display two collections at once! I swear I have no imagination at all!! Love your last pieces - the faerie jar and the necklace. They are just beautiful!

Funny, we stopped at a little cafe for lunch today and the salt shaker was a ceramic VW bus and the pepper shaker was a VW beetle. Tacky? Yes, but every table had a different set of "tacky" salt and pepper shakers. It suddenly became so cool!
