My mom loved this set of
bird salt & pepper shakers.
She has been gone over 20 years now but I was able
to get these when she passed. They are a reminder of how sweet she
was. She taught me all my most valuable lessons that have served me well throughout my life. Miss you, Mom.

    Yes. Lesley it is. I have been fascinated with birds my whole life and my mom told me that if I could put salt on a birds tail then I could catch it. LOL She was pretty funny.
