Vintage Salt and Pepper Shakers and Swaps !!!





Here are the pics of the vintage salt and pepper shakers my grandma inherited from her mom!! I LOVE them. these are not even all of them they couldn't all fit in cabinet! My cousin Sabrina took these pics and I made her send them to me! My favorite are the dutch kids, the pregnant lady in the back with her hubby, and the coffee pots. My great grandparents owned a restaurant in Iowa and I think thats what started her S&P collection! My grandma hinted that since I collect S&P shakers as well she is thinking of giving them to me!!! wwweeeeee !!!

Also this past week I have received some swap goodies!!! a pillowcase and a cross stitch from Katie I am sssooo in love with the pillowcase!!! thank you thank you! And today I got a swap package from Serendipity_sarah she made me "finger-tip mitts" with the cutest fabric EVER! its all famous places in California !! love it! here are some pictures of them!



My brother already used them to move a boiling pot! He was actually really impressed (he's 18 he doesn't think crafting is cool) these will be PERFECT for baking some cookies!!! mmmmm mmm mmm ! anyways I can't waiiiiitt to get my apron in another Swap I am in!

If your grandma sends them to you, where would you put them all? That is one serious collection! I like the giraffes in the back.

I was gonna mention when you posted this and I forgot: I first saw the preggers granny salt & pepper set in an issue of BUST magazine, so when I saw them in your picture of your grandma's collection it was like "wow! It really *does* exist!" Celebrity housewares sighting. ;)

So, I totally just pawed through every copy of BUST I own, and scoured their website, and can't seem to find the article about the Pregnant Granny S&P shakers. I tend to pillage my magazines every few months for collage-able images, then recycle the rest, and sadly, it probably got thrown out.

It was a couple years ago or more, methinks, and about the social implications of the joke...just a little side column piece.
