Collections: Cocktail Shakers

Mother and I were invited to a fundraising event in Hot Springs by my dear friend, Alecia, a few weeks ago.  The event was fabulous and the purchases were too!  We took advantage of our time in Hot Springs and went to a couple of antique shops.  One in particular, Bath House Row Antiques, owned by the sweetest couple, Sue and J.L. McFarland, stands out!  They have exquisite taste with fine antiques and lots of great finds!  And I just may have picked up a couple of new items to begin a collection…

 

IMG_1129Meet my new cocktail shaker!  It’s an early Mother’s Day gift from Mother and Daddy!  Isn’t it great!  I had never seen a shaker so large with such great detail!  For my next party, concocting a few martinis will be a cinch with this new cocktail shaker!

This one has a cork spout but still is secured nicely while shaking!

And here they both sit on my new bar!  The owners of Bath House Row Antiques said these cocktail shakers were the largest and smallest they had ever seen!  I’m thrilled to have this new collection…it’s cocktail time!  Thank you Mother and Daddy for my early Mother’s Day gift…I love it!

Have you been “shaking up” any new spring cocktails?

Enjoy the day!
