A weak moment.....
I left my parent's home one day last fall and I turned and saw these salt and pepper shakers in a box. They were something that my mom bought on one of our summer travels out west. I had decided to toss the bunch. Stupid emotions make you do things that stopped them going to the landfill. As you can see I grabbed the shoe box with a bunch of them in it and brought them home.
They are watermelon heads. They are imports of course.......from Japan. You can see the makers mark on the salt holes as they didn't smooth out the clay bumps when they poked their tool into the top. Three holes for salt, two for pepper.
And catch those wonderful blue eyes looking out at you saying "take me home." My sons will have to throw them away someday when I have been sent to the looney bin. They are kind of perky in their own way.
I have decided that anytime that I can't think of something new to blog, I will dig out another set. I have quite of few in which to display from our world of ketch.
Thanks for reading......
