It was when I was decorating for Valentine’s Day that I found this to be true. I wanted to use the colors pink and white…only most of my decorations were red! I dug through my candles and even my snowmen decorations.
I finally settled on a vignette for the kitchen table using several small items on a white platter. I decided to use rock salt as “snow” to keep the items from sliding around when the platter had to be moved.
The trouble started when I got out the “snow.” I went to set it on the table and the side split!
I am not sure how old the rock salt is because I have used it several times as snow. One year, I placed candles inside cobalt colored vases and used the rock salt to hold them in place.
One Christmas I sprinkled rock salt around my centerpiece to add a little more sparkle to my table.
Unfortunately, it was stored with the ice cream maker in the basement. I planned on using it every year, but never got around to making ice cream.
The box just couldn’t hold up to the humidity.
Recycling is important…but can’t be done forever.
