Another Collection


Yes, I have another collection.  It's really all my Mother's fault.  She love to collect some of the neatest things and I guess it rubbed off on me.  No, I know it rubbed off on me.
Mom always had a pretty dish full of vintage salt shakers sitting somewhere.  She would pick up odds and ends of sets when she and Dad antique shopped.
One of the things we did when Mom passed away was to give her friends a salt shaker from her collection.  They all knew how much she loved her collection.


This set was a set she had that I inherited.  I love each and every one of them. They are all so unique and special. Love the pretty platter too.  Look at the teensy tiny ones.  They are all worn but so precious.

Another thing I love to make out of the vintage salt shakers is a tassel.  They all turn out so different. 

This is one I made that I kept.  It has yellow roses.  It is special because of the yellow roses - that's what I had in my bridal bouquet!!


Till next time, Judy


  1. I collect vintage S&P's too but mine are egg cup chef heads (I don't know what to call them) from the 20's and vintage dogs. Love your collection! Have a great Tuesday!

  2. Such a beautiful collection, and so the more special because of the connection with your Mother. I love how these are each unique, too. Have a great day!

  3. What a special collection!!! Love the tassel you created... very unique!!!

  4. What a lovely collection! I have a collection of 'orphan' salt shakers! Not all as lovely as yours, many of mine are a bit more modern! Hugs, Linda

  5. The tassel is very different, I don't think I have ever seen one, I like it.

    She did have a beautiful collection.

  6. That is a lovely collection Judy. The tassel is thinking out of the box.

  7. Such a darling collection to have from your mother. And such a good idea for her friends to have a part of her that way. Clever tassels too!

  8. These are so cute! And my favorite color of roses have always been yellow.

  9. What a beautiful collection and something fun that you can add to. They are each one so unique and beautiful!

  10. I'm following now, too! I love your blog!

  11. You never cease to amaze me with your talents, Judy/Lucy. ;o)
    I would never think to make a tassel from a salt shaker.. I have an old tall case clock that your tassel would be so pretty on.. Keep your eye on it ! ;o)

  12. I think...no I know ..that you and I would make great neighbors LOL. I love your collections and I'm like you. I take after my Mom as well. Maybe that explains why all of my cabinets are busting out the seems.haha. Enjoy those sweet shakers. So pretty!

  13. What a lovely collection, so sweet to have something that meant so much to your mom. I have my mother's cookbooks, she was an avid cook and collector, as am I.
    That tassel is just beautiful, and so special with a reminder of your wedding. I would never have thought of that, brilliant idea!! I have to find something to put a tassel on!

  14. Another great idea! I love turning the salt shaker into a tassel. What a lovely collection.

  15. Hi Judy...at first I thought these were hat pin holders..they look so similar...I love them!! aren't collections fun??I collect old porcelain women headvases from the 50's and 60's...and vintage Xmas girls and angels...so much fun! Love your post today!! Carol
