It is NTM Monday! Never Too Many…salt and pepper shakers!
Thanks to California artist Rita Reade for the share!
Rita is the creative powerhouse behind Mammabellarte and The Vintage Marketplace at Galway Downs. She has always got something creative going in her studio or on her stovetop!
“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!
