Birthday Wishes Vintage Postcard and Salt and Pepper Shaker Friends
The vintage postcards were a gift from my grandmother. She used to include them in the books she gave us from Christmas, sometimes writing a personal note in pencil on the back side.
I now use the vintage postcards to mark special holidays and occasions. I keep a small collection of them already framed, and change them when I want to try something new. The vintage postcards mark special occasions, from birthdays to favorite holidays. There are even a few postcards about favorite subjects, such as cats, and bees.
The vintage postcards sit on a silver tray on a wooden cart in my kitchen, a nice way to greet me in the morning. My kitchen is the heart of my home so it makes sense to have something special where I can enjoy it. I started adding salt and pepper shakers to the vintage postcards last year, a nice way to add charm to the vintage postcards.
I didn't have complimentary salt and pepper shakers to add to the birthday wishes vintage postcard until an afternoon of hitting local antique malls with a friend. I don't plan to collect salt and pepper shakers, I just want a few that can keep my vintage postcards company for easy home decorating.
How do I decide? Quite simple, they have to make me smile. These two yellow baby birds in a brown nest came home with me. Price $2.80.
The yellow birds are removable from the brown porcelain nest. Both are shakers, see the tiny holes in the nest?
The little salt and pepper shakers add some whimsical charm to the birthday wishes vintage postcard, don't you think?
