Please Pass the Salt and Pepper...

I was going to title this post

"You've got mail." 

But you don't. 

I've got mail!

I got the cutest little card.
And a pair of these...
 Salt and Pepper Shakers! 

I told myself if I ever came across a pair of these little shakers
... I was going to scoop them up and run home with them as fast as I could. 

Because of this....

Aren't they cute together? 

My Grandmother had a set of these when I was growing up.

I used to have a pair of these; 
I had gotten them from a dear sweet neighbor lady long ago; I always loved them. 

She gave the set to me, when I showed interest in them.
... unfortunately one of mine was broken years ago and the other is lost.

( No one remembers what  MYSTERIOUSLY became of that other shaker.) 

I still have the butter dish, and it sits on my window ledge above my kitchen sink everyday. 
Inside it holds little surprises , that I come about from time to time- 
(choking hazards really...that little eyes spot before I do!)

My butter dish stands alone no more! 

...And so the story goes... 
These were given to me by a neighbor...
this time a bloggy neighbor.

Thank you Pat, at  JUNK BLOSSOMS!
Aren't they cute? 

I  just wanted to share what has been shared so generously with me. 

God Bless you today.
Thanks for reading!

YOU, your blog and darling salt n pepper set are TOO SWEET! I must tell you how I feel I was led here to see your daily verses... Yesterday I was worried about a pregnant mare (horse) and today it's my DD... Both times I found just what I needed here and said a prayer of gratitude. Thank you so very much for your kind and inspiring words at my blog. I am also THRILLED to see little ol' me added to your blog roll!

Such interesting things that people made long ago, huh?

Have a lovely day!

I have a soft spot for old s&p's too. Love the fact these are shaped like irons! So cute!

I am glad that your set is once again complete. The story behind them makes them even more special.
