It is NTM Monday! Never Too Many…salt and pepper shakers!
Thanks to California artist Rita Reade for the share!
“I have collected shakers for a couple of years,” Rita said. “And it all started because I was teaching a class where the students had to sprinkle German Glass Glitter on their projects and so the collection started. Now, once in awhile when I am at the antique stores, I find one particular one that I have to have.”
Rita has 25 shakers, which she displays on her fireplace mantel.
“As soon as I said to friends that I collected salt and pepper shakers, they find them for me,” she said.
Her favorites are the two smallest with a mother of pearl top.The glass is beveled and the lower part has diamond-shaped beveled glass.
Ki would love to know what collection makes your heart beat faster!
