Kitchen copper-Part 2

This is part 2 to my copper collection in my kitchen. This large pot is a find from one of those department stores I never visit. If it weren't for Christmas shopping, I wouldn't have this beautiful urn. At the time I purchased the pot I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, so it sat....then one day I found this large, I mean large, jar at Salvation Army for $2.99. Maybe the combination of the two will make a perfect food scrap container for the composter? I'll use a embroidery hoop with a heavy lining glued to it, as a top! What do ya think? Keep the cats away!?! This is the other side of my back door, there isn't much wall so the small stuff gets hung there.

Believe it or not, the mold in the middle that looks tarnished, is highly collectible. Fruit, apples and strawberries are much sought after and few to find.

The bottom circular mold, the flower basket (3rd in from fish) and the rooster are of higher quality. I like the zodiac mold in the center.

The lower circular mold, the Christmas tree and the gingerbread man are of the heavy components and probably one could cook a cake in them.

Just when I think I've reached the end of this collection, something else pops up, I need to find a spot for my crab I just bought. C&G Design

It all look good and I think the one to use for food scraps will be great.

OMG you really DO have a HUGE collection Dawn! Good for you! The food scraps idea is a good one...I never would have thought of that but why not have something pretty to put that stuff in? Do you use any of them for cooking or molding foods? Nice I am going to be noticing them all the time at yard sales and thinking of you...just like Kathleen's nun collection!:)

That's a lot of copper! I think your copper urn would be a nice compost jar.

Great display! We find these molds often and always sell them in our booth. Lots of fun!
