Just Too Cool: Salt and Pepper repurposed

This is a really fun bit of correspondence.  For you chess lovers, or … perhaps flea market and collecting lovers…

From a reader…

Dear Father Zed, or Father Zee (as we say up here north of the 49th!!)

For several decades I have been collecting sterling silver bits and bobs from thrift stores, flea markets and junk shops.

I managed to amass a collection of both sterling silver salt and peppers along with the crystal salt and peppers with the sterling tops and the pearl buttons.

I present to you a Chess Set cobbled together with some of my collection that I have had sitting on my living room floor for about 8 years. Enjoy!!

    Very cool.

  3. Grant M says:

    It’s the perfect combination of:
    “You are the salt of the earth”
    “Fight the good fight of faith”

  4. Kathleen10 says:

    Wonderfully creative, only an artist would think of it. It’s beautiful and functional.

  5. Fr. Kelly says:

    Perhaps another use for salt that has lost its savor?

  6. “salt that has lost its savor”

    Sound like a shaker tune.
