BUTTER MOLDS

Morning Prim Folk,  hope you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend so far............ I enjoy these beautiful old butter molds, love the  look, feel and all the different patterns they come in.  I have been collecting the butter molds for some time now, most were bought on a trip  we were on, hard to find them around these parts.  So not only do I love the feel when I am holding one, the worn wood beholds a hand from long ago,  but also a wonderful memory from where I purchased them.  The two smaller molds I bought when Cam and I took a Holiday out East, I won the star mold from a Thrift store auction, bought the biggest one when my Sisters and Mom took a little over night trip together  and Cam gave me one as a gift.  So these beautiful old butter molds are a treasure of memories and a

antique addition  to have in my kitchen............ Wishing you all a happy Sunday, thanks for your visit, much appreciated, Spring Blessings Francine.

  4. I love butter molds as well but they are pricey in our area so I only have a couple. I think having the stories behind your collection makes it even sweeter.

  13. The molds are lovely! The hands that have used those beautiful molds would have wanted someone like you to have them so that they'd continue to have good memories associated with them.

    You have a great collection.
    I didn't realise some of them were so large.
    Makes sense, though.

  21. You have a great start on your collection! I wonder why you don't find them in Canada....they must have used something different. Hope you snow melts soon..we got rain today but it is cooling down now for more snow:(
