shake it birdy shake it

A weekend trip to the thrift shop netted me this…. for $2.99. It is incredibly light and fragile. Made in Japan. I couldn’t believe it survived the journey to this place, to alight amid the tacky coffee mugs and mismatched china. It’s a salt shaker. Or is it pepper?

I looked everywhere for his mate and couldn’t find one. It doesn’t matter. He seems happy enough to be on the windowsill alone. Well, not really alone. He has the squirrels to keep him company.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
