When Harry Met Sally

Paying homage to rom-coms and staying faithful to my foodie shelf – I thought I indulge myself with a little entry of cute as pie shaker sets.  There is something deliciously nostalgic about salt and pepper shakers.  They are things of time past.  Grinders are really the flavour du jour.  No matter, any pair of these gems would brighten up any dinner table!
