Show & Tell


Antique flour shifter, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.

I found this very much used and loved flour sifter a year or so ago. I forget I have it, but it’s mainly for display.
Blue Graniteware coffee pot
I found this on the trip Bri and I took to New England in the fall of 1984. It’s old and stained, but adds a vintage feel to the shelf in my kitchen where it is displayed.
It’s a cold and blustery day here in s.e. PA. I’m glad I went to my mom’s yesterday. Today I was looking for a plastic box for the rest of my snowmen. I brought up an Easter box first and it was too small. I looked in one of the boxes leftover from the kitchen redo (it’s going on 3 yrs ago) and there were my vintage Franciscan Autumn leaves dinner plates! I need to bring them up in the kitchen! I started to decorate a bit for Easter. My entire house needs TLC! I’m trying! ; )
Have a great weekend!

  1. I love your old flour sifter. I have an old one to that you squeeze the handles together to make it sift. Love the pitcher too. I collect old and new pitchers, but I’m partial to old ones. Love the history behind them. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog. :o)

  2. I love your vintage sifter and coffee pot. Amazing to wonder who has used it over the years … and that it was once shiny and new. Oh, thanks for the lovely comments about my daughters room.

  3. I have a very similar coffee pot. I love to use it for a flower vase.

    I know what you mean about the house needing TLC. I still have not put my things back from last Nov. when I decorated for Christmas. I plan to spend the weekend doing some heavy duty cleaning/organizing!

    I hope I don’t have all kinds of errors in this. I have a glare across my screen and can’t see!

  4. What great old vintage items! thanks for sharing them, I especially love the sifter. Ingenious design.

    We are TLC-ing the house also this weekend. Everyone must have the mid-winter clean the house urge!
