Upon hearing that I like "old things," someone at our church recently gave me this antique butter churn! Isn't it wonderful? I think it's pretty.
I just love the earthy tones.
This one was made in Medicine Hat, Alberta. You can also see that it's cracked, but that's ok, because I don't plan on churning any butter in it! But I think it will make a lovely addition to our farmhouse-style dining room . . . if we ever finish painting it!
The handles are still in good shape.
Arden finds it fascinating. She likes to peer inside, though the contents never change - some antique dust and a dead spider! No, I haven't got around to cleaning it out yet!
Here are some of our wooden blocks, a combination of Plan Toys and Smiling Tree Toys.
Arden likes to build block towers.
But what she really loves is knocking them over!
Micah bought a bottle of sparkling apple cider (non-alcoholic) for our anniversary. Arden saw the bottle on the table and wanted to try some.
Her reaction was priceless . . .
The mornings are getting chilly and a nice hot bowl of porridge sure starts the day off right.
Stirring with a spurtle from Scotland just makes it seem more real!
I like mine with brown sugar and milk, of course. Micah puts butter on his instead of milk! Isn't that weird? I had never heard of that till I met him.
