This collection post was inspired by a friend's blog on the topic. Indeed, it was a recent theme for Vintage Love Saturday over at Southern Lady Vintage (so click on over to see more great salt & pepper shakers).
My collection started with these plain, old dollar store ones:
Boring, I know, but you have to start somewhere!
Next, I found these sweet little birds at a stationary store called Write Impressions.
It was such a cute little store, but they closed the location that was just down the street from me.
One summer, I found these awesome lemons on discount at the pharmacy - I couldn't pass them up!
My sister-in-law found these robin's blue egg-shaped ones for me around Easter this year.
I love how they complement the birds in colour & the lemons in shape & size.
Finally, the prize of my collection - a vintage set, given to me by my gramma:
OK, so technically I had this set first, but I've never used it & only thought of it as decoration until I had collected a few more. I'll have to ask my gramma again where she got it - either her mom or music teacher I think (I met her piano instructor once when we went to a regular mass held at the convent near my gramma's - she was a sweet little nun).
In case you can't read that, it was distributed in Canada by Mostly Music Gifts & Accessories (there's a postal code too, but no date). Want a closer look?
Ideal melodies. Inspiring ideal memories.
