Imagine you’re out shopping, you see something you absolutely love but you restrain yourself and walk on by. Does that sound familiar? No? Me neither. Try as I might, I just couldn’t resist these tiny vintage salt and pepper shakers from my favorite Antique Mall in Edmonton. Admittedly, I might be there far too often (Mr B stop reading now). Look how sparkly they are!
They’re the perfect set for my craft room. I just love using vintage things in the craft room while I tinker on my projects.
I like to think about where things have been or who may have used them before. These are so cute, I think maybe someone very glamorous owned them. Like maybe Marilyn Monroe used them at a picnic on the seashore, you just never know.

I’ve filled them with pink glitter and like a fairy godmother with wings, I’m dusting everything with sparkles.
The little tag on one says Marineland, I guess that’s why they have tiny pink & aqua sea shells on them (much prettier than diamonds). It’s almost like they were custom-made for me. I’ve never visited Marineland, but these little shakers are so heavenly, it must be a magical place.
