So, the Bag Lady finally found her salt and pepper shaker collection and guess what? They were right where she thought they were all along....she just didn't look deep enough in the box! Here is a slightly blurry picture of most of them. (The Christmas shakers are not in this picture because they are in a different box - she actually uses them at Christmas.) Click on the photo to enlarge to see the details of the shakers:
Here is one of her favourite sets - can you imagine actually using these on the table?
And here is the set that will forever remind her of Tokaiangel :
Finally, while these are not shakers, they are for salt. Originally, salt cellars were set on the table, complete with their own tiny spoons. The Bag Lady's grandmother had six of them (she may have had far more - the Bag Lady's sister, Reb, has a couple) and the Bag Lady ended up with these four.
Unfortunately, the Bag Lady didn't do a very good job of photographing them, despite actually putting on her reading glasses so she could see the screen on her camera. Sheesh.
