The Secret Life of my Salt and Pepper Shakers


I'm always amazed at the variety of tiny flowers we find in our yard among the blades of grass when we look very, very carefully.  Of course, little ones don't know them as "weeds" yet and are able to enjoy them for their actual beauty.  We like looking them up in nature identification books to find their names.

 


I think I may have mentioned this before, but personal salt and pepper shakers (minus their lids) make excellent little vases for our yard flowers.  Just the right size!

Great idea about salt shakers for mini-vases. I'll remember to look for them at rummage sale next week. Dainty, pretty flower pictures.

Love the salt shaker idea! :) Our vases are never small enough for the tiny flowers Mr 3 likes to collect!
