Welcome to "2nd Time Around Tuesday," graciously hosted by our friend Diane at A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words.
Thank you, Diane, for taking the time to be our hostess. I always enjoy seeing your and everyone else's "2nd Time Around" treasures.
Today, I'd like to share these vintage kitchen utensils I inherited from my mother-in-law, along with the old crock she used to keep her utensils in beside her stove.
I love them because they were hers, and I wonder how many eggs she ... and her mother before her ... whisked with them during their lifetimes.
The whisk in the center is spring-loaded and works by pressing down on the handle. I had never seen one like this, and you can tell by the peeling paint on the old wooden handle that it was used a lot.
I've already put the wire whisk and garlic press to good use, and I'm sure I will find a use for the spring whisk, too.
I love having the crock beside my cooktop because every time I take a utensil out of it, it brings back sweet memories of my precious mother-in-law.
The old lemon juicer was my grandmother's, and I treasure it, too.
Thank you again, Diane, for giving us an opportunity to share our "Second, Third, or even Fourth Time Around" treasures.
