Disclaimer: Blogger is driving me NUTS tonight! It simply WILL NOT let me choose my font size. So, this post is multi-sizing. Please bear with me, I KNOW it isn't RIGHT, I've tried and tried to fix it - - - but blogger just has a mind of its own and is doing what it pleases, not what I please.
It's THAT time again!!!! Vintage Thingies Thursday over at Coloradolady and Thrifty Thursday at Bloggeritaville.

Once upon a time I got sick and tired of my greasy old Tupperware butter dish. I mean, it had served it's nonbreakable purpose during the years my 4 offspring were toddling, but I was ready for something better.
I wanted a nice china butter dish.
Preferably I wanted a nice ANTIQUE china butter dish.
And so my quest began. Whenever I went in an antique shop, I kept my eyes peeled (that hurts, ya know?) for a butter dish.
At long last I found one:
SURPRISE! It was round. Back in the day when ladies churned their own butter, they pressed it into a round mold. Round butter needs a round butter dish.
This one is certainly round. I don't know how old it is, but it has the feel of fine china.
And it holds stick butter just fine with only a few minor alterations!!!
