Oh My Corn!


Here is a wonderful picture for Wordless Wednesday. 

This is to prove that you never know what I will find and bring home from an excursion to town in the state of Nebraska.  I found these adorable little containers at a friend's rummage sale.  Her mother, who has the same penchant for auctions that I do, snagged them at a forgotten sale.  Now, they sit in my buffet and will make an interesting summer centerpiece. 

I wish I knew exactly what their purpose is.  I do know that one is a butter dish and sugar/salt bowl, but I can't fathom what the other three are.  One might be a big serving container or cookie jar.  The smaller ears are throwing me a curve.  Any ideas?

At least, the cat doesn't seem to mind them...

Thanks for following me from the Green Mama Blog Hop! I'm following your blog back as well! That strawberry jam you made looks a-maz-ing! Yum! Love the corn containers you got! I'm not sure what the smaller ears are for...maybe small serving dishes?

Have a wonderful day,

My guess would be a set that you would find on a big meal kind of setting; like thanksgiving. So you would have stuffing, gravy, cranberries, etc. kind of things in them. Just a guess! But they are so cute. Great find!

Those are great suggestions- I will have to use them at Thanksgiving. We will be stylin' up our turkey dinner Cornhusker style...
