Roosters & Hens

Wednesday, May 19, 2010
A few years ago I did a catering job in an old church in Stanchfield, MN. The church was old and had a fully equiped kitchen that was FULL of wonderful vintage things. Stacks of hundreds of Homer Laughlin plates, coffee cups & saucers, jadite items and in 1 cupboard, rows and rows of salt & pepper shakers with bakelite tops. I fell in love the with those salt & peppers. From then on, I looked for similar ones when out antiquing. I have scored a few sets and love using them. Today I am sharing at both Vintage Thingie Thursday and Tablescape Thursday. Thanks to Suzanne & Susan for hosting these weekly events!

My small collection of Salt & Pepper Shakers w/Red Bakelite Tops (yeah, I know that one is not a matched set).

This table also includes Vintage Candlewick parfaits, iced teas and candlesticks, Red plates from the Goodwill, Rooster plates from the Country Living collection at Kmart and a large wire hen with egg holder in the center (a top a vintage cake plate).
