What’s Blue And Pink And Not A Dead Animal?

Although I had decked out my fancy shopping cart for the antique show this weekend, I only ended up buying one thing. And I could have just carried that around with me.

Was it the naughty Santa? The pink toilet? The taxidermied raccoon?

None of the above. It was a blue wooden ice cream maker! Love that paper label on it.

Using your vintage ice cream maker as a vase for peonies

Non-functional, but I would probably never in a zillion years make ice cream in something like this (old, wooden, dirty). Who am I kidding, when they invented Ben and Jerry’s Phish Food ice cream, all ice cream makers became obsolete.

I’m using it as a vase right now, but I’ll probably put flags in it for 4th of July.

For my photo effect above, I used one layer of Kim Klassen’s Subtly Yours texture in Soft Light at 70%. You can roll over the photo to see what it looked like straight out of the camera (SOOC), before I started messing with it.

    LOL! I didn’t buy as much as I thought I was going to either, Pam! I have my post going up tomorrow about the fair and what I bought. I was looking at that pattern link you sent me. I’m thinking I may give it a shot. Thanks for sending it onto me!

    I’ve got one in green which seems to be the most common color, but I’ve never seen a blue one before. It looks so pretty filled with pink flowers and will look very festive filled with little flags. I think mine is making “Dust Bunny” ice cream.

    Your blue ice cream maker cute especially with the pink roses! I discovered you on Savvy Southern style and I’m now a follower. I would appreciate if you could follow back. Tx

    Hi Pam! Love that photo effect! Very cool. What a great find; I just love old ice cream buckets! It reminds me of my childhood and visiting my grandparent’s farm. They had an old ice cream maker ” bucket-style”, but it was light green and did not have any kind of label like yours. It sure made DELICIOUS ice cream though!! I remember sitting on the porch with all my cousins just waiting and waiting while Grandpa cranked that bucket for what seemed like hours.
    Thanks for sharing!

    This is cool and I love that last photo!!
    So glad you passed on the dead animal lol!
    I cannot believe your peonies are out already.
    It’s been chilly here can’t wait for the heat!

    Hi Pam I am back with a question!
    I find you to be one of the smartest bloggers out there who knows about rules, laws and such.
    So my question is would I get into trouble if I used a photo in my banner from pinterest? It’s a black cat and I don’t know the source but have it in a collage with my photos. I really want to use it for my header.
    Thanks Pam :)

    How fun is that ice cream maker…especially with the label still intact! Your peonies are gorgeous. Our buds aren’t quite ready yet.

    We had one that was similar growing up on the farm in PA and used it to make ice cream all the time. It was SOOO good and fun! I love yours-what a find! xo Diana

    What a great find! I love that is still has the paper tag on it. Looks great with flowers but i can’t wait to see it with mini flags it’s just perfect for flags!
