I love this - salt cellar

This might become a new series...if I can find enough things I love. Kind of hard to do when you're a jaded pessimist so we'll see.
Something I have found room in my stony heart for?

My stainless steel salt cellar. It is only 2" across and has a tiny stainless steel spoon.We use this instead of a salt shaker because we use kosher salt.

Something else I love. If you aren't using kosher salt instead of table salt you're CRAZY because it is awesome. Try it and see.
There is something so elegant about genteelly spooning salt onto your food instead of shaking a greasy glass tube like a mad man. The only drawback to the charm is having to endlessly explain it to guests. If you care, I bought the salt cellar on Ebay, but you can also buy it on amazon.


  1. Oh - so I'm actually supposed to put kosher salt in something? Keeping it in container from the store isn't classy to use? I didn't know this existed!

  2. I am loving the look of the salt cellar. I am such a salt freak, tho, I'm afraid I would use too much. Do you find that to be true?

  3. Hi! I'm new to your blog, coming over from Becky's at Love Everyday Life. My great grandma had one of these and it brings back some great childhood memories.

  4. Mandy, so did mine! Only hers was cut glass and shaped like a swan - very depression-era.

  5. Oo, I Like this as well! I have mine in the container it came in but a salt cellar would look alot nicer. :)
