I continue the inventory of the cupboard I cleaned a couple of weeks ago. This is an old flour sieve, made of wood.
I don't remember if this is from my family or Mr. Kotkarankki's. The sieve is intact. Could it be horse hair?
Here you see a detail how the net is fastened between the two wooden parts.
Just look what my mother gave me on Tuesday when I spent the day with her:
The Green Little Dutch Girl Jug! With her dotty apron and red cheeks! I just asked her about the history, and she wanted me to have a clean little girl jug for use. She remembers this jug and a bigger orange one from her family's summer villa at some time from the twenties to early forties. She guessed it was her Auntie Saima's, because she was the one to buy cute things. I'm waiting for my rhubarb to grow a little so I can bake a pie and serve vanilla sauce from this jug. Just like when I was a little girl.
