Blue Monday

Welcome to my addition to Blue Monday. Blue Monday is hosted by Sally @ Smiling Sally's Blog. Thank you Sally for hosting every week. We all really appreciate it.


This week I wanted to show you a set of salt and pepper shakers that I purchased at Monticello (Home of Thomas Jefferson) several years ago. I love them and use them next to my stove. And now that I look at the photo (I used one of my work cameras for this photo) I see all the grains of sugar that should have been cleaned off the hutch! LOL!

To see more Blue Monday posts or to participate in Blue Monday, go to Smiling Sally's Blog.

Happy Blue Monday! And thanks for stopping by.

Happy Blue Monday to you...

What cute little shakers. My mom would have loved them since she had a lot of blue and white and liked teapots as well.

Happy Blue Monday :-)

Melissa,

I probably sound like everyone else but I love the S & P shakers & I have always wanted to visit Monticello since reading the John Adams biography. He and Jefferson had quite a rivalry & I'd like to learn more about Jefferson!

Ha Ha about the sugar on the hutch. Every time I take a picture I have to clean up or rearrange and re-shoot. Funny how the camera sees everything!!
