Ladies Night and Sad Mr Shaker

I have these anthropomorphic dancing teapot salt and pepper shakers. They were souvenirs from Deep Creek, Maryland that my grandmother had in her china cabinet for years and years. I always fancied them so she gave them to me. Then my husband found me the same ones on ebay, so he bought them for me.I had all four of them on display on a shelf above my kitchen window, thinking they were out of harm's way. They weren't. My husband knocked the shelf down taking something off the top of the refrigerator, and they all broke. He glued three of them back together, pretty successfully, but this little frankenstein's monster might be beyond hope. Then a box came in the mail with yet a third set of anthropomorphic dancing teapot salt and pepper shakers that my husband bought as an apology. So I am now responsible for an an even larger family of incredibly fragile teapot shakers, I don't know where to display them. Right now they are all wrapped in cloth in a drawer.
A little more progress on my Ladies Night painting.

Julie, it is better to enjoy to enjoy them for a while (even if they someday get broken) than to never see them at all. I love that you just call them "Frankenstein shakers" now. Your husband is awfully sweet to go out and find you new ones to replace those that got broken.
