Crock Heaven

Good evening sweet friends.
Well not sure what the weather is at your home,
but March sure came in like a lion here in Michigan.
Which is great news as it will go out like a lamb...
fingers crossed.

I have always loved crocks.
The striped one in front is called a wax sealer.
These were used for canning before glass jars.
The lip at the top was where the wax would be poured
to seal in the contents until used.

The white crock on the child's chair
is a whiskey jug with a bail handle.

My crown lidded crock.
Once crocks became manufactured,
each crock company featured their own stamps.
I have seen many crocks stamps...
Indian Head, Red Wing, Hexagon Star, MN Western,
Birch Leaf, Shield, Numbers and an Anchor to name quite a few.

Salt glaze and white butter churn crocks.

Small crock and stoneware bowls in various colors.

A few more displayed on our bucket bench.
This bucket bench came from one of the last farmhouses
in Allen Park, Michigan.
Original blue color with the wood coming through.

I hope you all enjoyed a little bit of my crock heaven.
I so enjoy showing you pics of my home.
I just wish I could send you all home with cookies,
or brownies and a beverage of your choice afterwards.

Heavenly Crock Blessings To All!
