Two Jars and a Jug (ABC Wednesday–J)

CIMG7528

I really must try and get myself “out and about” again soon. 
Desperately searching the kitchen cabinets for J’s…

These were either my grandmother’s or her sister’s. The labels say “sugar” and “potato flour”. Not keeping anything in them now; they’re in a top cabinet which I can’t reach without a ladder.

There’s not much room in my kitchen to have things like these “on display” since the cabinets go all the way up to the ceiling. In my previous kitchen I had a free space on top of the cabinets below the ceiling where I kept some things like these. Not good from cleaning point of view, though…

My compromise in my present kitchen is to have one “show” cabinet and sometimes leave that open.

  4. I like the shape of the jars and their colour. In a spare bedroom on Lewis I have loads of books in cupboards like that. I never leave the door open though because a) when I do CJ tells me off and b) people can bang their heads (which is why CJ tells me off!).

    1. To bang your head in my top kitchen cabinets you'd have to be over 2,20 m tall. Even if you seem quite tall in photos I've seen of you, I think even you'd go free! ;)

  5. These jars are beautiful. My grandma had also some but I don't know where they are now.

  6. Wonderful jars. We used to collect jugs and hang them from hooks on a rafter in the ceiling in our old house.

    To me, potato flour seems an odd thing to have written on a jar. We tend to have flour bins (larger) for whest flour but not in pot, usually in tin. Matching pots for sugar would usually be tea and coffee.

    1. I agree with you. Don't use a lot of potato flour myself. However, when I think about it... Potato flour was used in a stewed fruit-dessert which we had frequently well into my childhood/youth, eaten with milk.
