Vintage Thingie Thursday - Milk carrier

http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/
What does Suzanne have today?  I wonder? I think I'll go check out all of the other blogs!!!!

Today I want to show you all a vintage metal milk carrier I bought awhile back.  I'm still wanting to buy the glass milk bottles for it too.

I have decided just to use some my glass pieces I have already for now.

I have an old bottle, some small vases, an old oil lamp and  and a glass grater  of some sort.  The owner of the shop said it was for cheese or nuts.  I don't think he was sure.  It has a fantastic red lid which matches the red handle on the carrier.  The bottom of the jar says "Federal Tool Corp. Chicago".

I added some little Valentine red picks to spice it up for Valentines season.

Have a wonderful VINTAGE THINGIE THURSDAY.

I have seen those in many vintage malls. At least you are making good use of yours.

I just saw a clever idea for one of these in the Pottery Barn catalog-they used one as a chandelier with light in the bottles!

It definitely looks like some sort of carrier. The red handle is great. I love anything red.

I've always wanted a milk bottle carrier just like yours! I picked up an old rusty one last year, and I want to put old blue Ball jars in it, along with a bunch of flowers this summer. Yours looks really cute!
Happy REDnesday!

Hi Ann, I can't believe you don't have this stamp set! So glad I used it and I can't wait to see what you do with him! This is so you! Hope you are staying nice and warm!

Love your milk bottle carrier. I passed one up at the GW once, and regretted it ever since.
