Jan, since there is no gold on top edge, I'm going to guess this had a cover at one time. Probably a trinket box.

I'm down to only the ivory colored Viking ship and pepper horn. The color has faded badly on those. I think they should be kept out of the light.

   Good morning everyone. Hope you all are well.
   Judy, I keep forgetting those boats a cellulit. That is a pretty color. As I have been following your lead with my posted salts, why stop now? Glad your plumming drama is coming to an end. Not fun at all.
    Good morning Mary. I really hope your daughter and son in law get posted near you. Bet you miss them a lot. But how fantastic to be posted in Japan. What an experience.

Mary the salts arrived safe and sound. Now need to get the books out.

Plumber will close the holes and trench in the front yard today. I hope they can get the lawn level; I had new sod laid last spring and the lawn was just filling in and really looking nice at the end of the crowning season. My daughter will also have her new H/AC system installed today.

Good morning everyone. Pretending I am working and taking Friday off. I have a three day weekend. Life is strange here. Just me, two cats, a quiet house and my brain, but Hey, I have a three day weekend....
Still love looking at your salts. My son-in-law is going to be home on the 13th, Finally able to leave Japan. We are not sure where the marines will send him next. Somewhat locally or way across the country to the south. Just hoping he has time to come fix my picture problem on this contraption. I do pray he is stationed here. It would be a Blessing to have them both local.
Judy in Texas, I finally mailed those two unknown pedestals, hope you can find something out about them. Looking forward to your posting of information.
Okay out of coffee in my cup. Have a good one......

   My salt of the day is Fluted Square by Wetzel in blue.
   For those that didn't know, Jane's hubby went back into hospital. Big time UTI. Was getting better then ran a fever and tested + for covid. He is not real sick with it. Just cold like symptoms. Will come home in a week.
   Take care everyone. Be well and prosper.

Lynda your gold rimmed salt is the same as mine --- It looks like yours has a medallion in the bottom. I had one like yours at one time but sold it. I have a few with under plates. I just found one a few months back that I think is H&J 2853 that has a lovely cane design cut tub and under plate. Stands to reason that open salts might have plates to keep the spoon from loosing salt on the table.

  Judy, good Lord, that's a nightmare. This is why I rent. I'm to old to deal with all the upkeep and problems of a home. Drove me crazy. Course renting has it's own problems too.
 I did not know that tub had an underplate. They look good together. Judy, is this pedestal the same as yours? I love your white/pink silver overlay. Never saw one like that either.

I'm in Mansfield Texas. It is located south of Arlington between Dallas and Fort Worth.

After I had foundation problems at the first house I owned in Arlington; one of the engineers at the office told me that in this part of Texas the soil in clay and expands when it gets wet then contracts when it is dry. So the dirt is either sticky and like glue when wet or hard as a rock and cracking open when it is real dry. That is hard on the slab foundations. He said here if you haven't had foundation problems you well. Getting RAM JACK to level the foundation is next on my to-do list. The foundation heaved and the back of it sunk about an inch when I had a water leak in the slab in 2018. Had to have the whole house replumbed and let the ground dry out under the house for the past two years. Always something to eat up me open salt budget!

My salt of the day is a small Diamond CUT tub with an under-plate. It was one of the first salts in my collection.

2021 started off with a bang ... My daughter's furnace through the fan through the coil and needs repairs/replacement. Because of the weather her work has been backed up to Tuesday. A couple of days later the outside main water line from the street into the house at my house broke, (Old PBC pipe crackling from the cold.) and I am having to have the whole water line replaced. The plumbing company couldn't get to me right away so they turned the water off Saturday to avoid water damage to the house foundation. Sunday the owners son came out and dug out the spot where it is leaking and put in a quick temporary repair. Supposed to have a trench dug from the front of the house to the water meter at the street today. They have to tunnel under two sidewalks and through tree roots in the front yard. Tomorrow they will put in the new pipes and values. My neighbor has to have a pipe repair at the meter last week. And a neighbor across the street had to have their whole line replaced a few years ago. Pipes breaking and foundation problems are common here because of the expansive soil in this area of Texas.

It's snowing in Plano, TX! Pretty soft snowfall all morning. Unfortunately, following rain is forecast for all afternoon, so the white won't last long. We get so little snow here that it's an event. My neighbor across the hall rang my doorbell and pounded on my door, didn't want me to miss the snow. My cat didn't know what to make of it.

She has been dealing with bank accounts that have been compromised as well as internet sites. These people have no morals and it is so difficult to get things straightened out. I’m praying you are able to clear up your affairs. We all love you and are trying to help you through. Stay strong.

  Good afternoon. I would say, we are not OK today. I have to admit being somewhat quarantined has not bothered me much. I like being home. What has bothered me is the hatred out there. That I don't understand.
  I'm not good at this time in life at dealing with more than one problem at a time. My car is my problem right now.
  I hope we all keep coming here and talking and sharing. It is a big joyful part of my life and I miss you guys when you arn't here. I think we need to all look at the beauty we still have in our lives. Try to keep your hearts light and filled with laughter. I'm with Mary, going to ask God to please help this poor nation and it's people.
   I think as a group we are very lucky. We all have roofs our our heads, food to eat, love in our lives and salts on the shelf.
  Nancy V. You are dearly loved, by your family and your friends. I so enjoy our interaction. I think the Serenity prayer says it all. God, give me the strength to change what I can, accept what I can't and to know the differance. I don't like you panicking. You need laughter. Have you ever watched the Gram Norton show? Please Google it and watch it. Put a chucks in your chair cause you will laugh so hard you'll pee you pants.
   Susie P. Cry all you want. It helps the frustration of not being able to change things for your Dad. He is being cared for and that in itself is a blessing. This getting old really is difficult on everyone. But it is part of life. He must have been a wonderful guy as he raised a lovely lady. All you can do is give him love and remember he is not the one suffering. You are. As long as he's not in pain or aware of his illness, he is in good shape. Not to you of course but to him.
   Oh, those 2 salts, killer fantastic. I regret not getting one when I had the chance. Ce La vive.
   I guess all I ask is that all of you come here. Share your feelings and your salts. Don't go away.

Yes, I totally understand how Debi feels, how we all feel, and I feel the stress and sadness as well....my dad continues to decline, I had to tell him Mom died 11 years ago, and yes, you do have another daughter who is still alive- he didn’t remember either, so spent the morning bawling my eyes out....he is having more bad days than good, and still can’t go in to see him, just window visits, which are hard. He did get his first Covid vaccine Monday, hurrah!!

It does make me happy to come here, to visit with you all, to share stories AND of course salts! We make each other stronger!

Here are my salts for the day, I had the individual and just got the master, signed Whiting I believe, and in the OSC. HUGS to you all!,

I think we can all understand and feel the stress Mary describes. The twin pressures of the political situation and the covid virus threat can stress out the strongest natures. I have had three panic attacks trying to get through a door with my walker, and I've never had a panic attack before in my life! I think it's because of the overall stress right now.
One of the best ways I find to cope is to escape into reading a good book, watching a good movie, and talking to someone who understands. Here we can't exactly talk to one another, but it's the next best thing. Best wishes and prayers to all of you.

I know this is not what we know or can understand. I have to pray and believe God will once again regain control and life will be much quieter and easier. Too much stress from a very divided political scene with great hatred being constantly voiced from both sides. Add our isolation and fear because of an uncontrollable virus, and wrong actions are being taken. I am praying for my Country. I know it will never be the way it used to be. We are too far down the road for that, I just pray for some quiet in hearts and actions. I also know that I need a safe place and that this board and the world site are my go to places. I need to see your beauties and to read and feel your excitement. I need to get lost in your knowledge and compassion for our salts. Please continue to come to this safe place and get lost in our hobby. For me, but most importantly for you. I love you all and may God find a way to Bless us and keep our country safe from itself.

What a color display, Lynda! I love those little jewels.

P.J. As I understand it from my medical advisor (my daughter) the first shot gives only partial immunity, the second much more. The vaccine should give good protection from illness if you contact the virus though you can still carry it and transmit it to others--the reason to continue to wear masks and practice social distancing. My upper arm is a little sore, no other symptoms. This vaccine is described as an immune system booster, no virus in it. People who felt ill from earlier vaccinations with killed or weakened viruses don't need to fear this one. I hope a high percentage of people take the shots.

And people are still dieing of stress illness' by covid. They don't do autopsys on covid patients unless there may be foul play. I'm hoping the vaccine is our answer to the pandemic. I also hope we've learned from this and are better prepared in the future.

Nancy, Debi has a great reference for silver marks right here. Go to references/marks &identification, and then the second on the list. Debi once suggested taking a picture and enlarging it instead of using a loupe. It really helps!!

Thanks for naming the set,Jan. I remember admiring Sandlandware. Thanks for the offer to help with the silver marks.
I can probably figure them out with a loupe and the lists of date marks on line. If not, I'll try some up-close photos. I'm not as keen on complete ID's as I used to be, just enjoy admiring my salts.

  Jan, Here is my poor lonely oval Daisy and Button. Lololol I love these guys. They are a hefty piece of glass for being so little.
  Almost forgot, Nancy D. Love the cat surveillance operation. Very cute.

  Merry Christmas eve everyone.
  Jan seeing you with anything other than glass just seems wrong. I am so use to you with old glass or opalescent /opaque glass. Very pretty condiment set. And no Jan, that Daisy and Button oval type, I have only an amber individual. Weird.
  The silvers are of course beautiful. It is amazing the design that can be pressed into silver.
  My salts of the day, bucket Daisy and Buttons.
  Mary, I forgot the little one that looks like a kings crown was in OSC. Thanks for the reminder.

Lynda, that blue is really pretty. You don’t have a baby for it?

Mary, ooooh. That silver is gorgeous.

Nancy, if you post a pic of your marks, I can try to decipher them, emphasis on “try!” The set is marked Sandlandware, L&S, Staffordshire, England.

Hmm, I posted earlier and it seems to have disappeared. Love the little footsies, Mary, as well as Jan's set. Is the set marked, Jan. The china is so pretty!

Here's one of my few sterling silver salts, bearing English marks. I can seldom manage to read the date marks, either can't decide what the letter form is, or can't make out the letters at all. I'll just say this one is old, small cup.

Good morning.
Jan I love your set. Always love the bright and cheery.
Lynda, I do believe your clear baby is in The OSC. I have it also and was happy to see it there. I think The OSC one has a gold trim or some type of decoration although I adore it plan and far from simple.
Let’s see if I can post a salt picture for a change. If no picture, well you know I didn’t.
Pretty little guided sterling from London with a date mark of 1873. Look at its footsies.
Hey maybe I can do a couple for the monthly.
Have a happy everyone.

   Good morning everyone. Hope you are all well and staying safe.
   Nancy D, I think that kitty is fantastic. Full of spunk.
   Nancy V, If I had to get on the floor to wrap packages, I'D never get up. I think, from what I've seen, it is 50/50. Many people still wrap but alot bag too. My daughter-in-law still wraps cause she loves to see kids tear into the paper and the twins help her. I love the bags. Use the same ones year after year. Lololololololol. I'm not necessarily cheap but can't stand the thought of throwing them away. They are still in great shape and they are darned pretty. Yesterday, Madison helped me do up the packages. So easy peasy.
   My SALT OF THE DAY, my 1st and only Battersea from Mary. Thank you Mary. I love her.

Love the Christmas kitty, Nancy D.
Lynda, your lineup of Christmas packages reinforces what I've noticed in my family gifts. We have all switched to gift bags in place of paper wrapped packages in recent years. They look nice and are so much easier to prepare. Is this fairly universal, at least in the US?

  Nancy V. Moser with open windows. Lovely, very mod. Color is pretty.

Jan as the saying goes, if the shoe fits wear it. Apply that to salts in holders, if the glass fits buy it. Maybe the blue glass wasn't originally with its holder, but it is a beautiful fit.

Linda, I love the melon salts, especially the lovely Mt. Washington ones like those on both ends of your line up. I don't know who made the ones with raised lines separating the bulges.

This little coral salt with white lines is missing its holder, very common and I'm not really hunting.
