More butter, please !

These two stoneware butter churn crocks came from Gr. G'ma Lottie, also. They would originally have had a wood or stoneware lid and a wooden paddle. Their history can be read on the site noted in yesterday's post. I do not know any family history about them and did not even know they existed until your Dad came home from Iowa with them when G'ma Ruth was moving into the Eastern Star home. Apparently, G'ma and G'pa J. had them stored away. I had always thought G'ma Ruth didn't keep mementos - I have been happily proven wrong several times through the years !! These churns sit in my entry hall, making a great home for umbrellas and canes.
