Here are a cute couple of ceramic frogs sitting on a pink lily pad. They actually are salt & pepper shakers I have.

These little frogs sitting on a pink lily pad are a set of salt & pepper shakers I have. (don’t know why the photo is kind of blurry when I made it larger)

31 Days of Halloween – Frog

This pair of brass frogs I have sitting on the bathroom sink. They are kind of creepy looking, and I wrote this poem back in 2015.

GUARDIANS

We are old

We are wise

We have been here from the beginning of days

We will be here at the end of days

We are all knowing

We are all seeing

We hold the knowledge of the universe in our souls

We are your guardians…

We are your friend

We are your enemy

We are your nightmare

We are your wildest dream come true…

We will consume you

We will spit you out

We are your everything

We are your nothingness…

We own you

We spend you

We love you

We despise you…

We will reward you with riches untold

We will destroy all you hold dear

We will shower you with refreshing rain

We will scorch you

We don’t care…

We know you

We adore you

We hate you

We will live on within you

We course through your veins

We commandeer your brain…

We give your life purpose

We shatter your ego

We exalt your spirit

We plunge you into despair…

We laugh at your hopes

We scorn your paltry efforts

We shine the light of love upon you

We call forth the abyss of darkness to envelop you

We cause you to break apart

We cause you to fracture into a million shards of humanity…

We forgive you

We build you up

We promise you

We give you strength…

We are watching you

We are waiting to obliterate you

We cause your death

We rejoice at your rebirth

We are your reality and reason

We are your insanity…

We are your infinity

We are your yin/yang

We are life

We are all knowing

We are old

We are wise

We are your Guardians always and forever…

Figurines

These are some of the figurines I have. There is a little guy playing an accordion, an old fashioned lady with fancy dress, and an old fashioned troubadour with musical instruments.

I used to collect all kinds, and most are all packed away right now out in our backyard shed. I want to get them out again someday.

I think these came from yard sales around the neighborhood fairly recently, well within the last 5 or 10 years.

When I was a kid, I’d go to the dime store, and first thing I did was get a new figurine. Most of these were animal ones, and I still do have some of them.

Then I got into collecting salt & pepper shakers, which are like novelty figurines, too. I have these in the house in a glass fronted china cabinet.

These two are my recent ones, of two tiger salt & pepper shakers. I got them at an antique store.

I found these neat looking tigers salt & pepper shakers when we went to an antique store last week. Of course I couldn’t leave them there, so bought them to add to my S & P collection.

Photos show different views of them – orange tigers with black stripes. One is standing up, the other laying down.

They don’t have any identifying marks on the underside. I don’t know how old they are, but being in an antique shop, maybe kind of old.

Here are some cute kitties I saw at a couple of yard sales last weekend.

First are two little smiling, orange and brown tiger striped kitties. They are salt & pepper shakers!

The next one is from Halloween, I think. A medium large black cat made with felt. It has orange eyes, and a collar with an orange half moon. This looked to be a bucket of some sort, maybe for holding candy? 🙂

A pair of novelty salt & pepper shakers. I have a collection of S&Ps, and this one I once entered into our local fair, under antiques & relics. It won a ribbon!

Here’s a pair of pears! 🙂 They are sitting on my counter until they ripen a bit more.

Something a little different today, for Feline Friday.

I collect novelty salt & pepper shakers, and these are pretty cute, so thought they would be interesting to see. The blue one is for pepper, and the yellow one is for salt.  🙂
