What to do with those single silver salt shakers?

Have you ever come across beautiful silver salt and pepper shakers but there was only one of them. Sometimes you even find a pair. I love to collect silver salt and pepper shakers although I don't really use them that way. I love to display them and use them as vases.

They have great designs on them and some are quite decorative. Here is a couple of my favorites that are singles. A plain one in front and the taller, decorative one in the back I have had for some time.

The one on the right is part of a pair and has handles on the side.

I like to have flowers beside my bed. They make the room smell lovely, especially when the flowers are my roses. This week my variegated ones are blooming like crazy and smell divine. 

The rose vases sit next to some of my vintage perfume atomizers.

                        They are all being displayed on this gorgeous vintage blue tray.

I love this tray and knew when I saw it that it would have to go in my bedroom. It has these beautiful forget me nots in blues and purples.

Here is my vintage vignette beside my bed.

I found the white lamp base for $2 a number of years ago and then found the toile lamp shade at another garage sale for $1. 

This picture is not great since it is over cast today and a little dark in my bedroom. If I put the lamp on, it cast too many shadows.
