This might be one of those posts where some of you shake your heads and think that I'm absolutely crazy. And you are most likely right. But I'm a happy kind of crazy so I'm good with it!
We purchase our milk every week from a local producer which is awesome and very economical but messy in that the bottoms of the cartons are always fairly dirty from being on the line. This has always given Bryce a bit of the skeevies but its been easily remedied by giving the cartons a quick wipe.
As soon as I spotted these ceramic milk cartons I knew that I could solve the messy bottom issue and make pouring milk a whole lot prettier (that's where part of the crazy comes in- since when did pouring milk need to be pretty?). Yes, it's an extra step of decanting the milk, but to me it is worth it. It doesn't hurt that it looks awfully charming at the dinner table!
