Salt & Pepper

Yesterday was a long day, but who doesn't love a good road trip?!? 
I'd been there before but I didn't have my camera and since the admission charge is only 3 dollars, I thought, "Hey, why not!" and went thru it again. So.... Welcome to the Salt & Pepper Shaker Museum (ps: I think you can click on the pictures to make them bigger).
Once you get inside you literally become surrounded by S&P shakers!
Room after room is filled with them! They've even got them placed in categories!
The categories include things such as: Fruit, animals, countries, color, etc
Every shelf is covered!
You'll never look at them the same way!
And that my friends is just a small sampling. They have over 20,000 sets! If you get down to Gaitlinburg, TN then you should check out the museum. It's amazing! While I was there I tweeted a few photos, if you'd like to see those as well check me out on twitter!

That is kind of awesome. I have some snowman S&P shakers that magnetize together to make it appear as though they are kissing. They are my faves.
