When I saw this… thing… in an antique store, it stopped me in my tracks. Normally, a large ceramic figure that’s really a two-part container functions as a cookie jar. But…
First, cookie jars don’t come with salt and pepper shakers. Plus, I found these particular salt and pepper shakers rather creepy.
Second, I would not put my perfectly good chocolate-chip cookies inside a dead bird.
Even a fake one.
So if you know the story behind these whimsical works of art, do tell! There’s room for you in the “Your Turn: Comments Welcome Here” box below the post, and I am truly curious.
After all, everybody has a story… even fake dead birds.
Thanks for reading!
