I admit I have a problem. I just can't walk away from those beautiful old rolling pins! My husband wonders when the madness will end. Never, I say! As long as there are those brilliantly colored glass rolling pins (I actually have one that belonged to my great grandmother in amber color) and those gorgeous stoneware versions with the painted flowers, I'll never kick my habit!
I've found a great way to display my antique rolling pins. I picked up a wooden antique wine rack cheap, cheap, cheap at an estate sale and placed it on top of my antique ice chest. Instead of wine bottles, I placed my rolling pins in the slots, and it looks adorable! The accordian style racks are the best, as the staggered display allows each pin to be better seen. I've also placed some of my old rolling pins in dough bowls for a cute look, although it's a bit tougher to see the beautiful designs on those in the bowls. I recommend the solid, colored ones and wooden ones for that type of display.
I'd love to hear others' ideas on how to display these great old treasures!!
