I love old things! I love knowing that someone enjoyed using something before me. I love that this now "old" item is tried and true. That it has been tested by someone else before me and deemed perfect for use; whether everyday like a sifter or rolling pin or maybe for once a week Sunday dinners like the good china or a clean apron. That maybe it was their favorite like a wood mixing spoon worn on one side from constant wear against their favorite mixing bowl. That it has acquired character from their constant use, like chips and cracks and fading.
I even like old things whose prior use is questionable, dubious, unknown to me at least. Like this milk glass pineapple shaped jar:
Charming, huh? But what is it? What purpose does it have? It has a lid, a pineapple shape body that even has "greens" on top and some cute little feet just like a real pineapple, no? Ha! But what exactly was it used for?
Some research reveals that is from the French company Vallerysthal
