I'm not sure where this fascination withe measuring comes from. I do have an engineering degree and always excelled in math in school. But I think maybe it's simply the knowing how big something is or how much volume it contains, that I find so satisfying.
So it's no surprise that I have a nice collection of old measuring cups. I keep them on the window sill in the kitchen and actually use them on occasion. They're mostly glass, but I have a few ceramic ones too.
Some of them came with peanut butter in them and were sold in grocery stores. Must have been some sort of marketing gimmick.
I love the one that says King's Vanilla. It's more like a large shot glass.
I have a small collection of rulers too, but they aren't nearly as interesting, mainly because I have not been collecting them as long. Give me some time.
I have my eye on these two selections from etsy's vintage category.
Loving this nesting set.
