Sculpture for the Table:
Sophisticated Salt & Pepper Mills

The salt and pepper grinders in my house are disposable plastic eyesores. Not a beautiful tabletop display, to say the least. But the majority of collections around the blogosphere seem to be made up of mostly shakers, not mills, so I gathered my personal favorites for salt and pepper mills that are guaranteed to be as striking as they are functional.
