Having recently painted two walls in my dining room a statement-making shade of blue, (https://coco724.wordpress.com/2011/06/04/hgtv-itis-a-disease-without-a-cure/), a quick search in the china cupboard produced these vintage made-in-Japan, Siamese Cat salt and pepper shakers. 

A gift from a friend who remembered our own blue-eyed wonder, Lily.  She was an Oriental Short Hair extraordinaire with blue eyes every bit as dramatic as the ones you see above  Lily was a real mover and “shaker” with her own take charge sassy attitude–we miss her to this day.
