For some reason this little vintage Jello mold puts me in mind of Aunt Bea on the Andy Griffith show and those idyllic days in Mayberry.

You know--the apron, sweetly curled up-do hair, pies cooling on the window sill, lemonade in the icebox.

It brings to mind days of the 60's before styrofoam burger boxes and microwave ovens. In other words, this is from another time before progress. It is at least 50 years old and therefore considered vintage and nearing the antique category.

This jello mold has been gently loved. It still has the little scrapes and little taps where it may have been used to make a dessert for a Sunday chicken dinner. It is not perfect, each one has it's own character and coloring from years of use. I think it adds to the charm of this piece. I did not go to great lengths to restore them. The soft used patina is so appealing.

Perhaps a genteel lady was proud of her modern kitchen in the 50's or 60's and turned out cupcakes and jello parfaits for her family.

You can still see the raised Jello logo on the bottom when you turn it over.

It is silver toned, but I think it is probably made of heavy aluminum like cookie cutters of the same era.

I have made a pincushion from pale strawberry mousse chenille which gives it a little shabby chic flavor. The color is a very soft blush pink.

Parchment colored scalloped trim lacy trim accents the edge. A combination of two vintage style buttons make the focal. Tip it up in the front and see the Jell-O logo.

This sweet little confection measures 3.5 x 3.5 inches approximately. It has been lightly weighted for use on a sewing table or craft room.

Three decorative tack pins with ivory pearl heads and a heavy,ornate, silver Swarovski element accompany this pincushion. Each has a rose colored Swarovski gem stone on the front and back.

What a sweet gift for the seamstress, cook, or crafter! I also think this would make a sweet gift for four lucky bridesmaids if these are your wedding colors. I have four available at this time.

Remember the old saying: "There's always room for Jell-O."

Thanks for visiting my studio today.

Much love and a dollop of whipped cream,
