Tuesdays Treasure


Salt and Pepper shakers? No, they are the old insulators from power lines. They make  great paper weights. We found these on one of our country trips in an old barn.

  5. I love your old insulators. I see that one is "Agee" brand, the same company that made so many preserving jars. I fun item to find on your travels.

  6. I bet they are really, really old. I think glass probably started out as clear and changed colour in the sun due to the minerals in the glass.
