Salt Shakers...

You know you have them
in your cupboards...


 
orphaned salt shakers,
or little pairs that caught your eye...
 
they are so pretty
each one is amazing up close...


grouping them adds weight...





 
but you put anything under glass,
and it becomes important!
 
I saw a cloche vignette like this in a cute little shop
at Christmas time...
I won't tell the price,
but it was CUTE!!
 
my Mr. liked it a lot
and he picked up a couple more shakers
while we were out shopping that day...
 
don't you just love it
when they like it enough
to wanna be involved?




 
the doorman
finished hanging my French Doors today...
I am so happy!
 
he hung this set,
and changed the two other doors that lead to the foyer
to glass paned doors too...
 
the panes are still covered in plastic film for painting,
but already
the rooms fill with so much more light...
 
painting is in my weekend plan,
I hope yours are fun too?
 

 
today I am joining...


and
 
Thanks for stopping by...

Who knew S&P shakers could be so cute? I love the grouping-it really showcases them.
Good luck painting those doors. I have painted my share of them-it is quite a job but so great when it is done-xo Diana

Bella, your salt shaker vignette is CUTE. My "chef" has long amazed various pepper grinders that he keeps on a tray in the kitchen. It's fun to see a group of simple objects elevated to a new status. ;-)
Love the new French doors.

Awesome... I love glass doors. We even put them on our pantry but frosted the glass.

So happy for you about your French doors, they are wonderful.

So are your shakers. Look great together as you have them.

Hi Bella, How fun are your orphaned shakers, especially in the cloche! You are right everything looks better under glass. Glad your hubby got in on the thrill of the hunt, it is fun when they do that. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Gina

Darling, darling shaker display! I love every single lovely photo! It's irrational. I have the same crazy love for these little shakers. I think I first noticed them displayed in Carolyn Westbrook's book. She did them with buttons. Your cloche is pretty gorgeous too. AND THE DOORS!!!! Fabulous!! I want some. Happy day for you! xx

The salt shakers are so sweet--love how you displayed them. Your french doors loo fantastic and I love that ruffled tablecloth. I always enjoy getting a glimpse of it!

Burlap Luxe said...

Love your collection and how you group them soulfully together. I have a small collection and I love to take the shaker tops off and use them as small unique bud and wild flower vase's.

So glad I found you, I am going to enjoy getting to know you and all you inspire.

What an absolutely charming idea with the salt shakers! They look amazing grouped together under the cloche! They're soooo cute. And your french doors are wonderful! I bet you just love them! Everytime i see your lavender walls, i want to go paint all my walls the same color! The lavender just seems to complement everything!

Wow that is cute! They look really great clustered under the cloche. The cloche makes it so much more interesting! You have a pretty home. Love your new doors! I like that white bird cage up on the cabinet and your ruggled tablecloth is the cutest!

Haworth said...

I collect shakers, too, Bella. I use them as tiny vases in the spring for those first small flowers that come up in the garden: myrtle, lily of the valley, and violets. I love tucking them here and there around the house to bring the spring indoors. And at tea parties or luncheons they make sweet nosegays at each place setting rather than having one large flower arrangement on a table. Wishing you a lovely day.
