I collect salt and pepper shakers from places I've been. These have a unique story.
I flew to Louisiana to be a workshop presenter at NOLA Romance Writers conference. A shuttle picked me up at the airport, they had a wonderful welcome room full of Louisiana cuisine. I visited with local writers and other presenters. The conference was fun and kept me busy. I didn't have a chance to check out the area. I arrived at the airport early and started scouring the gift shops for a pair of Louisiana salt and pepper shakers. These were the only ones that caught my eye. Every time I look at them I think fondly of that conference and the welcoming writers running it.
