#8 glass salt shakers

. . . the preservative qualities of salt made it a peculiarly fitting symbol of an enduring compact, sealing it with an obligation to fidelity. The word salt thus acquired connotations of high esteem and honour in ancient and modern languages . . . the Arab avowal “There is salt between us,” the Hebrew expression “to eat the salt of the palace,” and the modern Persian phrase namak ḥarām, “untrue to salt” (disloyal or ungrateful). In English the term “salt of the earth” describes a person held in high esteem.

Yep. But I keep them ’cause they’re little & pretty!

    I love the glitterali and glamour in your ‘glamourous’ shots….what personality! But your conservative photos are very handsome all the same.
