waylande gregory shakers

by Grace Bonney

Today is my last day home in Virginia, so I’m soaking up every bit of “home” that I can this morning. A big part of being home for me is poring over my mom’s impressive collection of home magazines. While our styles overlap more frequently than they used to, her magazine collection tips more toward “traditional” than mine, so I enjoy getting to check out issues that I wouldn’t normally grab on the stands. While she was working on her crossword puzzle, I was flipping through the April issues of Traditional Home and House Beautiful and came across these adorable shakers from artist Waylande Gregory. Inspired by his sculptures, each of the shakers above feels like the perfect way to add a bit of color to the table. I’ve never been a big salt-shaker person (I prefer a salt cellar or bowl), but the turquoise crane shakers above might make me a convert. You can pick up the animal styles right here ($125 per pair) or the metallic styles below ($125 as well) right here. I can’t wait for summer entertaining . . . xo, grace
