This beautiful blue milk pitcher with two cows molded on both sides has been in my family since before I was born. It was one of a pair, but my mother told me that as a small child, I pulled the other one off a table and it broke on my head. For many years, I had a large scar on my forehead. The scar has faded, but at 87, I still enjoy the beauty of the pitcher and the story that came with it. The pitcher sits on a shelf in my kitchen.
