Sugar Shaker


Like my 9 cent sugar shaker?
Isn't thrift store shopping great?

It's not an antique or anything, but I have used it
already for topping sugar cookies, sprinkling sugar
over blackberries and adding a little sweetness to
the top of muffins before they went into the oven!

    6. Oh, so Gloria and I are buried in the dirt huh? And we're flirting with each other? I agree with Gloria ohhh fuuuu!!!!

      Your ocd would go nuts
      If you shopped the thrift--like a putz
      A movie you might find
      Or maybe lose your mind
      When you brought it home and saw scuffs.

    7. Then I would clean
      Unless all sparkled at my scene
      And you would still have fun in the sand
      Bored enough to count each strand

  9. 9 cents? that is a great deal.

    But I would sure make a mess if I was adding sugar to my hot tea with your shaker :) I would like using it for cookies or strawberries or maybe cinnamon toast.

    and I am looking forward to hearing about the auction with Pres. Washington's signature- I bet you will a big crowd of bidders

    1. Oh, I would make a mess, too....that's what I have sugar cubes for. lol.... This is just for sprinkling.

  10. Can you find movies that cheap too?

    1. Oh, you would be fun to shop with.
      If I made you leave the movie isle, you'd hiss!
      Too bad we can't text internationally
      I'd send you titles and prices occasionally!

      Delete
    2. You guys get many cheaper too
      Which I just go foo
      Or worse than that
      We'll go with Strat
      Going all Blu-ray now at my sea
      But only cheap ones as not many can be afforded at the moment by me
      If your phone was a smart one
      There are programs that are free to give texting a run
      No matter the place
      Where one goes to the rat race

    3. my phone is not smart
      but dumb as a dart.

  14. 9 cents, wow. outstanding photo, love the isolation and dark background, but especially the shadow and the tiny reflections on the shaker itself. Very cool

  15. Several years ago I launches an all out search for an old sugar jar... the ones like my Granddaddy poured copious amounts of sugar into his coffee with every morning... I never did find an old one, but I did find a new one (with a single spout... flapping lid). Thank you for reminding me of the memory of him fixing his coffee at the end of the table... =) blessings ~ tanna

    1. I have an old beautiful china one....yellow painted roses and a gold shaker top and the cork opening at the bottom. Too nice to use for every day...although I did for a while, which was fun! Love your memory....so sweet!
