salt and pepper vases...


Joy lives within walking distance to a great thrift shop which seems to turnover their stock quite regularly. A couple of days ago she popped in, on her way to buy some milk, and found this very retro cruet set. Once out of the box, the little jars look very cute as miniature vases for a few sprigs she picked from the garden. I love the contrast between the 'crystal' and the rough rustic tray she has put them in.
