My Vintage.....Kitchen Shakers


Sugar Pepper

Spicing things up

Beverly sat alone at her kitchen table, took a deep breath and dialed the phone.  She’d been alone for too long, hated her job and was ready to make a change.

“Hello, Madam Lulu’s escort service.” barked the woman on the other end.  Beverly nervously told the Madam that she was looking to get into a new line of work.  After several questions, Madam Lulu growled, “Fine, one of the girls is ill tonight so you can fill in.  What’s your name doll…and it better be good.”

Intimidated by Madam Lulu’s order, Beverly quickly looked up to the first thing she saw and blurted into the phone, “Sugar… Sugar Flour is my name.”

“Well Sugar Flower, you’d better be here in an hour and I hope you’re as pretty as your name.  Goodness knows we could use a pretty face around here.”

My Vintage.....Salt and Pepper


I love vintage.  Maybe it’s because I am vintage.  I thought it would be fun to share items from my personal collection here at Jotter Girl.  Yesterday I made myself a homemade light box for photographing my art work.  I tested it out on these salt & pepper shakers so they will be the first entry in “My Vintage”.   Since I don’t know the history of most of my vintage items, howsabout I just make something up?

Salt Silencer

Thelma detested Mrs. Tuttle, her neighbor upstairs.  The constant noise above, drove Thelma to became desperate to eliminate the “problem”.  She purchased a darling little pair of salt and pepper shakers as a gift for Mrs. Tuttle’s 65th birthday.  Three days later, upstairs became wonderfully quiet, which was when Thelma knew that the arsenic mixed with the salt must have done the trick.
