~ Olde Pieces From the Past~

~ Potato Mashers~

 Apparently I have collected potato mashers for some time. I will be showing more later. I still use one in the kitchen, preferring it over the electric beater, using the masher method shown to me by my grandmother and mother in law. These two are olde, one more so than the other. Black handled one is oldest, the other bears no paint left on the handle.
