Newest Obsession: Unique Salt n Pepper Sets

I've noticed a funky new trend in the simplest housewares accessory: salt shakers! I should have known the best ones would only be found on Etsy! The past few months I've noticed basic home goods stores carrying unique shakers that are far beyond your typical glass and silver set. And I've been searching for the perfect set for my home.

I know ceramics isn't paper-crafts related but I think it's ok to branch out every now n' then :-)

Here are some of my favorite salt and pepper shakers that I found in the wee hours of the morning/night from talented etsy sellers:

These colorful salt and pepper shakers are painted by sweetiecaketopper. They completely remind me of the Day of the Dead celebrations that are very big here in Arizona. Sweetiecaketopper on etsy has tons of other unique colors and styles.

Cheer up your kitchen with these multicolored salt and pepper shakers by chARiTyelise. The shakers are made with earthenware clay and glazed with multiple layers to create such a unique tie-dye pattern. These would definitely make for great conversation in the middle of your table!

by nelaceramics
The gorgeous orange pattern on these shakers was handcrafted by nelaceramics.  The shape is created using a potters wheel and is made with elegant porcelain. The great matching tray with these shakers makes it a mini-art piece for your dining room.

I thought these shakers by joynevada were too unique to pass up! The characters are called "little fatties" and are drawn on with porcelain inks that can even withstand a dishwasher. You're guaranteed to never have to eat alone again with these girls at your table!

by Creativewithclay 
These salt and pepper shakers are handcrafted so well they look like real soft mini pillows! Creativewithclay created these shakers with durable stoneware and gorgeous glazes. All of the 'trim' of the pillow is hand painted to match. The colors are absolutely stunning!

I hope you enjoyed the shakers I found! And maybe you have a new strange obsession, too
