I showed off some of my holiday salt and pepper shakers in an earlier post.  Here are some of my others...

Santa salt and peppers in a cabinet in the breakfast nook. 

I have two long rows of salt and peppers display on the media center in the family room.  The top row continues my Santa theme, the bottom row are snowmen.

Except the middle section of the media center where the snowmen are on top and the Santas below.

Back to Santas - most were manufactured by Fitz and Floyd - with snowmen below.

In the living room I have a small display of Fitz and Floyd Santas atop a curio cabinet.

And yes, there are still a few other salt and peppers about the house that I've not yet shown.

Partridge in a pear tree is so cute. I have that magazine issue, but can't remember seeing this design. I'll have to go look for it, lol.

You surely have the biggest salt and pepper collection. Love them all!
