Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
I have heard for many years how bad margarine is for us, but I never did anything about it until I read a post on Facebook about how margarine is one molecule away from plastic! Yuck! I finally made the switch over to real butter. One thing that I loved about margarine was how spreadable it is compared to butter.
I realized that the answer to this is to have the butter out on the counter, so I decided that I wound find a cute butter dish to keep it in.
I was excited when I found this darling vintage Pyrex dish from the 1970s.
I love the cheerful green flowers on top!
Now our butter is soft every time! Although, I'm worried about leaving it on the counter and spoiling, so I put it in the fridge at night.
I also found this adorable butter container at Goodwill. The funny thing about this dish is that I ordered the exact same one from a catalog when I was a young woman before I got married! After I got married, it was sitting on the counter holding candy and somewhere along the line I got rid of it. When I saw it again at Goodwill, I just had to have it. Why did I ever get rid of it? It's so cute!
I was really excited thinking it would hold a tub of whipped butter perfectly, but sadly, it doesn't fit!
The butter container is too tall and the lid won't fit on it.
But, there's an easy fix, I simply scraped the butter into the dish.
Now the lid fits perfectly! And it looks great on the counter...
...they both do!
Love my new butter dishes, they look just like buttah!
