Farmhouse Vintage Cake Carrier and Ironstone Cow Milk Pitcher

July 21, 2013

Isn't she beautiful?  She was a recent Goodwill score for $3.99.  I can't get over my luck.  As soon as I brought her home I just had to use her in a kitchen vignette.

Here she is sitting on my stove, along with my ironstone cow milk pitcher ($1.99 Goodwill find) and my vintage ironstone kitchen canisters (also Goodwill finds from a few years ago).  I threw in a large blue vintage mason jar and some hydrangeas that are starting to dry (yay!).

I have to admit my family didn't quite feel my excitement about the whole thing.  That is, until I used it for this.

Now they're just as happy as I am {insert smiles here}.

Isn't she beautiful?  The bottom plate is made of very heavy, ornate, leaded glass.  I just love her.  I did a little research and found similar vintage cake carriers going for $38.00 on ebay.

I also love how you can see the reflection of the hydrangeas in the lid.  The white clay tag (with a bee on it) that's hanging on the vintage ball jar is one that I made myself.  

If you're interested, you can see my easy, DIY clay tag tutorial here.

I was also thrilled with my ironstone cow milk pitcher.  Isn't he cute?

In all honesty I have to say that I already enjoy baking, but this beauty inspires me to bake even more! 

Brownies, anyone?

Keep cool and have a great week!


I will be linking up at the following parties:

Wow - you did get a nice deal!! If they don't show interest, just remind them it keeps bugs, etc. off their treats. :-D

I have had several of these and usually paint them but your cake carrier is so shinny and cool...I wouldn't want to paint it! Lucky you!

This is definitely a treasure. I love it. I have a vintage one, but nothing as lovely as yours. Gorgeous. I would love for you to link up to my Inspire Me party that is ongoing.
Hugs, Marty
