Vintage Thingie Thursday - Hen Salt & Pepper Set

Today for Vintage Thingie Thursday I thought I would show you this cute vintage Hen Salt and Pepper Shaker I bought the other day when I was visiting antique shops in Old Towne Temecula. I collect chickens, roosters and hens in my kitchen so when I saw this cute little hen sitting there calling my name I immediately picked it up!

To my surprise, when you pick up the top half, the bottom half is two eggs sitting on the nest which are salt and pepper shakers! I went crazy when I saw it and this little vintage thingie just had to come home with me!
