Just returned from PA. Where our Grandaughter had her dream wedding at the Pearl Buck Estate. It was lovely, but ceremony outdoors, and rehearsal dinner and main event in tents. Difficult for us arthritic people. Thank heavens for sons and grandsons who took good care of us.

You got some nice ones Linda. The green art glass has more of an Italian Murano glass vibe than English to me, but I don't have many art glass. Maybe Janelle knows. The little Asian man is called Sumida Gawa and "moriage" is the type of decoration on the china salt. I think that's Japanese.

And, an odd shaped china one, can't decide if it's Nippon or Bavarian. How about French? The dots (can't think of the name at the moment) make me think Nippon

As a Breast Cancer Survivor (ME TOO!!) You've been there once... and beat it... you can do it again !!! They have many more "Bullets" and "Torpedos" in their arsenal these days... We may be older... but with age...we gain strength of character... hell... within the past three weeks... I've had heart surgery and kidney surgery myself... WE CAN SURVIVE !!! WE ARE STRONG TOGETHER !!!

I'm sure a neighbor is helping to take great care of your little furballs and your yard... in other words... let your friends help... you have probably been helping them for years... give them a chance to help you... it will be your gift to them...

Remember we are here for you... to love you... to pray for you and with you... we are here... you are not alone...

JANE - I love your black cat - How nice of him to do that for you -

BRENDA - Happy things are progressing but so sorry to hear of another surgery and set back - Prayers continue and healing hugs sent

I had my biopsy on Friday and went today for the results and final answer - Had a team on my side standing against the medical whiz's - Even had my pulmonologist questioning their results - Well dam - It am what it am and that be that I do have cancer - They are still testing to determine if it is breast cancer or lung cancer - Apparently breast cancer is not just for the breast - it starts there and years later can travel and find another place to live - The lungs being quite close it is often found there - can move to the liver and bones - I am now praying for the breast cancer and not the lung cancer - Totally different treatment and the lung cancer can result in my losing half my lung - I just have to wait a few days for them to finish with the samples they took from my lung and see the oncologist so I know what and how we are proceeding - I am tired - very tired I am also quite numb right now and do not think I have fully accepted this - I am going to go take my night time pills and that includes an Ambien - If I am lucky it will work extra good tonight and I will sleep - Hugs to all

Craig's broken neck and back are healing well...he had a set-back four weeks ago which required another surgery (and another four days in the trauma unit), but he's getting better every day. He has a picc-line (IV) and gives himself antibiotics every night and we have a nurse that visits once a week to deliver medicine and give him a check-up. I learned how to mow the grass and operate the weed-whacker and lots of other things that I never thought I'd never need to do myself. This experience also made me realize to NEVER take anything for granted, and has helped me prioritize life somewhat and not worry about the little things. Thanks for asking!

Re: Flowers. I used FTD.com last year to send an arrangement to my aunt's funeral, specifically ordering a blue arrangement because my aunt loved the color. Anyway, the arrangement arrived and it was NOT blue, so I made a call. Not only did they immediately send a new, correct bouquet, they also issued a full refund. To me, that's great customer service. From what I can tell, 1-800 as well as most online chain flower companies actually partner with local shops, so sometimes it's just luck-of-the-draw, and the bottom line is that we're all human. I would definitely order through FTD again simply because they made good on their mistake. Heck, it sort of reminds me of selling ANYTHING online...we all make mistakes, and when I screw up, I usually go over the top to make it right. Sometimes this is acceptable to the buyer, but every once in awhile, there's nothing I can do to make the buyer happy and boy, do they let me know, which can be really disheartening. :(

sounds like the florist didn't put much thought into it, Jane. I'd have been upset about it too. I've never dealt with the 800 flowers company, I've only sent flowers a couple times and both times I've gone to my favorite store and they've handled the arrangements

Beautiful flowers my friend DIDN'T send me! She ordered an arrangement with a cat made of white mums in a ceramic pumpkin. First, they could send it. Then they couldn't send it. Back and forth. A woman called me and said she was substituting this. My friend called and said it's not what she wanted, cancelled the order, and got her money back. They delivered these anyway and told me to keep them! Anyway, don't order from 1-800-flowers!

I just had heart surgery myself week before last... feeling better but it takes a bit to get over anesthesia... Please...whatever they have planned for you... allow yourself plenty of time to recover !!! That includes selling or buying salts !!!!!

Everyone... I've been promising photos of my new little babies (Sugar Gliders... Griz and Grunch)... Well... I could only get Grunch to come out of the pouch tonight for food... Catch their food dishes... Yep... SALT DISHES !!! LOL...finally found a use for some of my duplicates!!! LOL... Just the right sizes !!! Isn't he cute??? They are finally allowing me to hold them ... not so for Olen yet... but it will come ... Enough for tonight... LOVE AND HUGS...

Funny face, Mary. Maybe he's wondering what happened to his arms? The silver ones are right up your alley. Very pretty, especially the Gorham. I love tulips. The salt for the elephant shouldn't be too hard to find. Any round with the correct diameter will work. Never saw the elephant but the other cart salts all used German lead crystal.

Haven't posted for a while - Will show some salts soon - Am trying to stay heavy on eBay listings - I go for a needle biopsy on my lung on Thursday producing an answer to any and all questions I have next Monday - a week from today - Was at my doctors about an hour ago - Cried all the way through the visit - He is giving me an antidepressant - Said it was one that would perk me not make me sleepy - I need perking - No crappy Pooh Pooh doc --

Back soon with salt pictures - Must sell down so if there is any type you are interested in - Let me know and I will send you pictures of what I have for direct sale - Of course the best way to reduce my collection - is too QUIT buying - There ain't no pill for that ----

I don't know if it is okay to post this here. If not, just tell me to delete it. I received this email today and am not in a position to buy a collection. I'm too old to take on all those salts anyway!

Hello.
I found your email address on the open salts.us/sellers website link and I'm hoping you may have an interest in my open salt collection.


Since retiring four years ago I've decided it's time to part with my collection since my interests in collecting now lie elsewhere. I thought I'd ask if you're interested in buying my collection or know of someone who is looking to add to their collection or maybe you would just pass the information along?


The collection totals 263pcs including three reference books by Allen and Helen Smith dating 1972, '73, '76 all in good condition and I'm selling the collection as a lot price.


Please contact me at dhill573@gmail.com so I can forward photos for your review and conditions of the sale.


Thank you.

Linda, that would be my idea of heaven and what fun. I bet there are hundred of bargains to be had. There is a small town on the coast about a hour away that has a annual garage day sale. ( same as a yard sale I guess) that has nearly everyone participating in. Is has become so popular people come from every where to check it out. No good for my hubby, he hates crowds.

A couple of years ago we went to a huge antique fair in a field, I loved it.

Jane, even though we Aussies have a distinct way of speaking and phases, a lot of words etc
still relate to our pommy rellies. There was a movie about Australia made a few years ago called " They're a Weird Mob". I guess it's true.😂😂😂😆😆

Mary, I do like your new silver, is it a griffon, owl, or winged cat?

Susie you got a pretty good group there, I think I have most of them,but I do see a couple I don't have, good bidding.

Janelle we have here in Nebraska what's billed as a 300 mile long yard sale. Every town along the route has a few garage sales, and sometimes venders along the main streets or in another area. Its a four day event, Thursday thru Sunday, and it's possible to drive the whole route if you don't stop for every sale. I'm going to have to check the listing book and see how many were actually listed. We only made it about 2/3 of the way. There have been a few copy cat 'junk jaunt's' crop up in the states around us, but then ours is a take off on one that is in the eastern part of the US.

Alright, then. I have to admit that I spent less than $3 on a salt this weekend. First up is one that'll probably end up a favorite, cause I like odd stuff. Not sure what kind of bird this is supposed to be, bird is a pepper, on a salt

Good early morning - Most of the silver comes unpolished - Sometimes the seller has polished it enough to see the marks - or only in the area of the marks - I do not have this one yet so do not know its true condition - With the right lighting the seller can make a piece look shiny bright or the wrong lighting and a semi polished piece look dark -I am thinking this one is a newer piece - But I fell in love with the puff bellied little winged creature - Most the time I have to polish them - I too have trouble standing so sometimes it make take several sessions to get them where I want them -

Thank you for a great kick start to my day - I love you all so very much!!!

I am hoping to go to a song fest tonight up the street from me - It is at a friend of mines church - So I am going more for her and to help support as I am not a good "audience participant" -- lol lol
She said I could sit in the back row by the door - So I am cool with that - It is called Street Singers and the singers are actual people living on the streets - The fee that they charge and all donations received go back to the streets to help people living on them -- Very strange and especially if true - Her husband is ferrying several of them up from the downtown area - so maybe - It will be interesting and if I can enjoy a bit of singing and help - I will be okay with it - Hope the songs are up beat and not all soft or religious - If they are mostly religious - I will have to leave soon - I am an easy crier on those anyway - and now especially - So I am hoping for good rallying songs -

You have always been the strong one with words of wisdom, prayers, laughter, support and even a kick in the butt when needed. You have so many who love you and will be your strength now as you travel yet another difficult road. Please know that we are here for you. God bless you and continue to talk to Him as He will not let you down.

Mary: The silver is glorious to see when it's clean. I hate cleaning silver, mostly because I have to stand at the sink to do it and for me that's a problem. I don't have a problem walking, but standing in one place makes me nauseous at times. Don't know why and I think it's weird but it happens. Not something any doctor would ever be able to figure out so I don't bother going. No doctor has ever been helpful to me since I was in my 20s. After seeing commercials on TV I finally know I had endometriosis about 20 years ago. No doctor ever told me that. The stabbing pains really felt like being stabbed and not in a good place! Used to have to go to a doctor in my 20s to get a pain shot every month that first day. It sounds like you have had some terrific doctors in the past and I'm happy for you as far as that goes. Now they need to fix you up again.

This one has not arrived yet - I really was lucky to find so many within a short period of time - Now you all know why I am back on eBay - I need to pay myself back and also get things a bit less cluttered here - I am going to quit for now - I do fortunately or unfortunately have others to show - but enough is enough and I am tired - and have abused the board long enough -

Well Debi - I did not know I had diverticulosis until about a month or so ago when I had an acute diverticulitis attack - Now that hurt - was embarrassing and scarier than hell - Well it was like hell on earth - My nurse friend came down early in the morning shortly after the attack was dying down and took me to the ER - While they were doing the cat scan of my stomach and such - they went up just enough on the right side to see a shadow on my lung - Once I was strong enough to get to my pulmonary doctor - she did an x-ray - She could not make it out and ordered a full upper cat scan - I did that on Friday last week - results were in on Tuesday and I saw her on Thursday - Everything has been super quick and I am truly grateful for that --

Now about your lack of purchasing - I must admit I went a bit over board trying to fix my heart when I lost Bob - Did not work, but I did come up with some stunning salts - All silver of course - Like this pair - They are so freaking ornate it is ridiculous - BUT - my problem is that the seller said - No Monograms - and they do have one - I am loving them and trying to assure myself I can deal with the monogram - it is very small and light and on the tray - I think their beauty is overcoming my "fear" of monograms -- Yep - I be weird --

I am scared - but I am also at peace most of the time - I know I am not walking alone and I am not going through this alone - You all have always been my strength - even sometimes when you did not know it - You are as close to me as my family is and probably know more about my ups and downs than they do - I ain't leaving you --- I may have to tend to some dumb business for a while - but I will be alright - I always am

No single person should have to go through as much as you have. Please have good results on Monday. We can't lose you. You pretty much hold us together around here!

I truly hate to keep coming on here asking for prayers - but it appears that God is not through with me and my tests of strength and trust - I was told I have Lung Cancer on Thursday - Is this the pits er what - The good news is that it was found - My trip to the ER was the catalyst in finding it - I will have my PET scan Monday - looking for all pieces and parts to light up and also a lymph node they can use for the final biopsy - Better than going in the lung to get it - So I do not usually ask for parts of my body to have trouble - but some prayers for a bad lymph node would be really nice - Other than that - well actually other than that it is sort of the pits ----

I have decided to begin a serious attempt to find more unusual silver salts - I have been pretty lucky so far - That is the good news - Now the bad news is that I have over spent my salt budget so MUST start back on eBay (which I have) - Fortunately the good news is that I have hundreds of salts to sell among other items - and it will be a nice distraction from my current reality -
So here is my favorite of this group of well spent bucks - Satyr resting on a pedestal base and holding up a shell - the second best part is that there is a well defined sea horse riding a wave on top of the shell - It is 800 silver and not a small cowering piece -

Omg, lots to catch up, Susie, you have done it again, twice!! Love those sets of salts. They would look Lovely in Linda’s cabinet. Great find Linda, bet they are all filled up already.

PJ, I don’t know a lot about the Sugar Gliders, we had them wild at Repton and would see at dusk. Held one when it fell out if a tree and it was so cute. They can live up to 15 years I believe. It is illegal to have them as a pet here as they are native wildlife. Only can be kept by registered carers and that is if they have been hurt and being rehabilitated to go back to the forest or If they are unable to released, they can stay in a large pen. As they are nocturnal and need to sleep during the day and need a fairly big area to glide in, it seems strange they are sold as pets. Their diet can be also tricky to get right as we had a wildlife carer live near us and was forever stressing over her chargers. Don’t get me wrong, I wish you years of joy with your new critters and hope they settle in well, just not something I would have thought of as a pet but I am looking forward to seeing photos and what mischief they get up to.

Hey guys and gals... after mourning over my Cali Cat for over 3 years... and Olen steadfastly insisting that we NOT get another cat... I just got a PAIR of SUGAR GLIDERS !!! They are the cutest little cuddliest handful you could ever meet... they are "Griz... and Grunch"... a little 6 and 8 week "out of the pouch" marsupials ... they love to be carried in a pouch and stroked all day long while they sleep... if you stop stoking them they "chatter"... asking for more...
I'm sure Janelle can tell you more about them... they come from Australia ...
I'm just happy to join the family of friends that have fuzzy pets again it's been very lonely!!!

Hi Susie, The Silver set is beautiful, and looks GREAT in the box! Don't MESS with them! The salts with the blue trim are a different thing! Why would you need six or seven of the same thing? I'd LOVE to buy one of them. Great FIND! Still don't know anything about a Fall meeting. Hope the dog is doing better. We are OUT of the CAT owners category(after having at least one Cat for over 40 years!) We lost both of our 19 year old cats, within 3 weeks of each other! NO MORE CATS, we don't want to go through that again! We KNOW they're "romping" up in Heaven! Take care, Don

Hi Susie - Lets face it - your first set is right up anyone posting on this boards alley -- Love them and congratulations
Your silver has a very familiar design - TAXCO - Mexican silver and no the spoons would not be original and if they are Taxco - which normally carry some sort of mark - The box would not be original either - Makes a nice presentation set though - I am too tired tonight to look TAXCO up on eBay - but you should be able to find some pictures and the flower design is very much within their productivity - They were pretty good at marking their pieces - I love the shape on the pedestal - Again ya done good -
