July Squares # 18 – Blue – Salt & Pepper Shaker

July Blues



This is a month of blue! It’s a fun challenge created by Becky of “The Life of B”, and each day we show something blue. The only rule beside blue, is that the photo MUST be SQUARE!

As an added bonus, I’ve found songs with blue in the title or lyrics, or at least something to do with the photo. 🙂

Thanks, Becky!

This is a set of Delft Blue salt & pepper shakers. It’s a three piece set, consisting of a small shallow blue boat (white inside), with two figures sitting inside. They are a little Dutch boy and girl dressed in blue. They can be removed from the boat, in case you actually want to use them as salt & pepper shakers. Mostly I think these novelty S & Ps are just for admiring and collecting.

I can’t even remember where I got these, but probably were a gift, as I have a few people that send me what they find at antique and thrift stores where they live.

The bottom of the set is imprinted with a small blue symbol of the maker, I think. I don’t know what it means, but there is a small windmill included in the design. It also says in blue letter writing = Hand painted Delft Blue, and a copyright mark D.A.I.C.




“Where the Boat Leaves From”, by the Zac Brown Band, can be found on their 2008 album, “Foundation”.



Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
