Show and Tell Saturdays- Collections

Hello everyone! Welcome to another edition of Show and Tell Saturdays, hosted by yours truly. This weeks theme is show and telling about something you collect, whether it be a big or small collection. If you have something to share go post about it and then come back and link up to that post using the handy dandy Mr. Linky down below.

I can't say that I collect much. And I really didn't think you'd want pictures of the dust I've been collecting all over the house so I came up with something else. My small salt and pepper collection. Now I know that some people "really" collect these and they can be worth some money. No, I buy things for the change of seasons so my table looks cute! LOL. I like useful collective things.
I have 4 1/2 sets of of salt and pepper shakers. Why the half you ask? Well my precious daughter dropped the pepper shaker of one of the sets. Let's see if you can tell which one! LOL.
If you can't, I'm going to be deeply concerned about you. Hee! Hee!
So here is my small but useful collection of shakers!Don't you just love the flip flop set? I got those at a garage sale for .50 cents.

I can't wait to see what you all collect.
Have a great day.
BIG Hugs!


  1. I love salt and pepper shakers too. My good friend brought me back the eiffel tower set from paris. I love them:)

  2. Hi Kim. I found you via the
    He & Me + 3 clan. You're so funny! I just had to come over and say Howdy. I was one of Mimi's stalkers for the week too. I'm so bummed out that I didn't win :(
    But it was still crazy fun!

    I'll try to join in on your show & tell. I collect Nutcrackers (I know...not practical at all but oh so cute) I've been wanting to post about a really special one I received a couple of months ago. So, this would be the perfect time to show & tell it.

  3. Oh...one more thing....you just got yourself a spanking new stalker!

  4. I have way too many collections to add S/P. But I REALLY like yours! And YES, the flip flops are WAY too cool!

    Once again, best laid plans have gone awry. Because Duller spent THREE HOURS doing an online job app last night, I was up later than expected finishing up my own stuff. So I overslept and got to the lieberry 2 hours later than planned. Now I have ONE hour to whiz-bang. Even with this super-fast connection, I need more time to watch veejos and listen to music and...

    OK, more than you need to know. 8-} Hope you're having a beautiful weekend. Love ya loads!

    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

  5. the flip flops are clever s&p shakers!! I have never seen that before.

  6. The flip flop shakers are a hoot! I collect LOTS of stuff (too much, LOL). You already know I have this "thing" about rabbits!

  7. Man, I would love to participate, but I don't collect anything that is fun! Other than purses...and NO WAY am I showing that picture..it could come back to haunt me when I least expect it..!!!!! Love the flip flops!

  8. Sorry I couldn't participate today - still on my break you know! Very strange that nobody linked up yet!

    I do like your salt & pepper shakers my friend! I have some that I like and am forcing myself not to start collecting them 'cause I will have nowhere to put them! I have a set that are little coffee grinders, a set of teapots, acorns on a leaf, and a bird hatching out of an egg. The other day I was at Target and had a super cute set in hand (a nest with 2 eggs inside), but I finally pried them out of my own hand and put them down - LOL! Then I stared longingly at them for a few minutes before going on my way, hee,hee. And now you went and made me start thinking about them again! Argh!!

    And of course I have teapots and teacups! Oh, and I collect refrigerator magnets! That would have been a fun one to show. They are only locations - cities, states, countries, and places of interest (like the Cavern we went to a few days ago).

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

    Big salt-and-the-pepper-is-making-me-sneeze-achoo Hugs!!!
