I've always adored these little copper butter warmers but have never sprung for one because they're ridiculously expensive. I've been using my stainless steel measuring cups on the stovetop to melt butter when I need it (we don't have a microwave), but I'm always worried that they'll warp, so I was very excited when I saw this on the shelf for a whole dollar.
I also grabbed this great book. It's full of fun-looking projects, such as book-binding, Shaker and Amish woodcraft, floor cloths, rag rugs, and quaint little bird houses. I can't wait to try some of them out.
Have I mentioned how much I love buying things second hand? You'd never get all this great stuff from a trip to Wally World!
Well, not for $5 anyway.
