Everyone knows I love kitchen items from the late 1940's to mid-1950s. My husband just found this little mixer at a local aution. How cute is this? And you'd never guess, but it's actually a SALT AND PEPPER SHAKER! The white "beaters" of the mixer are the shakers! I have never seen one like this (though I do have a life-sized mixer that looks exactly like this). It stands about 3 1/2 inches tall. The salt and pepper "shakers" are only about one inch, so wouldn't actually hold enough to be practical, but heck... who cares? It's just so darn cute in my kitchen!
