I saw this box of antique rolling pins for sale at the Country Living Fair and I had to take a picture. I can't help but feel a little sentimental for all the grandmothers that relied on these tools to make their house a home. Look at how worn the handles are - that is proof of love, if I ever saw it.
I treasure my grandmother's rolling pin - it has been missing one handle since before I was born, but we still used it every December to make sugar cookies for the family. You can see it and get Nama's cookie recipe here.
I was given a fancy-schmancy rolling pin a few years ago and it works like a dream. But I always get out Nama's rolling pin too. It's been part of my holiday baking and it wouldn't be the same in the kitchen without it.
