Mini Jars

You will never guess where I found these little jars on the left.
My dogs dug them up in the back yard. The dogs dig in the summer to find a nice cool place to nap. They are always digging up pieces of glass like plates and bowls or jars. Sometimes the jars are not broken . They are very dirty and I do clean them some but not much has you can see.
Now the jars on the right belong to my mom or grandmother. I am sure they set is a china cabinet somewhere at one time. But now they are hidden away in a kitchen cabinet. So sad don't you think?
The jar with the label still on it might not of been found in the yard. I think that one is just an old medicine bottle that got mixed in with the others.

Pecorlator or Coffeemaker?

What do you call it? Percolator, coffeepot or coffeemaker.
Last night my son's girlfriend was looking at an old cookbook and it had the recipe to make coffee in a percolator . She said what is a percolator. So I went and got one of mom's coffeepots. Thats what we call them and perked her some coffee. She says I have never seen anything like that before in my life. Boy now I know how old I am.
