Sharing a common thread with those who love the art of hand embroidery

Salt and pepper shakers..........another great thing to collect! For this Saturday design, the shakers are embroidered in the jade green, the roses are worked with the closed buttonhole stitch, and the tops are embroidered in gold thread.

These set of salt and pepper shakers were made by a local woman who owned a ceramic shop. She used to sell her wares at the arts and crafts show each year and my dear friend bought them as a gift for me. I love them!

I have a set of Noritake china, with roses much like the ones on this salt and pepper shaker set........, they go along perfectly.
How about you?
Do you collect salt and pepper shakers? I would love to hear!
I hope you stop back by tomorrow to see Sunday's design!

Hi Kathleen! Cute stitching and salt and pepper shakers. I don't collect them, but I think I could:) There are so many great ones out there, I think I could go nuts!

I have a few sets; I didn't set out to collect them, they just feel into my hands from a great-aunt's collection. This is a very pretty set to go with lovely work.
