Junk Count Down #16 Miss Flour Sifter

And here we have miss flour sifter. She is a tool that many have forgotten. You may ask yourself "who needs to sift flour anymore anyway?". Well my dear friend, I bet there are many blue ribbons at the fair sitting proudly next to a beautiful chocolate cake, that would have never even been considered into the ranking if the light fluffy delight had not been created with such a practical tool. I love that the handle is turquoise, a little pretty added to make a task, such as sifting flour that much more enjoyable. I like to imagine that a young bride in the mid 1950's received this as a gift with excitement! Out-baking the ladies in the bridge club for years to come, and always being the envy at the fall bake sale. Baking cakes and treats for her boys' birthdays even when they were grown because "no one makes a cake like mom!".
Yes indeed, this gadget changed her life! Who knows it may just bring the same magic to yours! Find her waiting for you at The Funky Junk Antique Show!

  2. you tell quite a tale hon! Are you irish? I have several sifters, but none as cute as this one :)

  3. Ok, I have to agree with you, 100%! You do need to sift flour if you want a good fluffy yummy full of goodness cake and yes, that handle does it for me! Great find :)
