Salt of the Earth!!
I'm the reluctant one when it comes to tossing out those pretty but odd~lot salt and pepper shakers. Because of this, I have developed, over the years, numerous ways to re~purpose them! My most recent re~use is as...
Easy as One... Two... Three
One: I went to my garden and plucked away three tiny onion bulbs from my pregnant onion (really...that's what they are called!).
Two: I dug up three lonely shakers (all were also sans lids...the center one is slightly broken at the top)cleaned them up and filled them with fresh water.
Three: Using size as my key, I set each bulb atop a water filled shaker and set them all on the window sill of my kitchen. Here they will be allowed to develop stronger, fuller roots so that they will thrive once they are transplanted back into the garden. In the meantime, we will enjoy them as they grow.
Beauty and function...a true frugal luxury!!
