Vintage Dairy Bottle Caps

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!  I did, but I’m exhausted and stiff.  Last weekend we drove to New Mexico to attend my oldest niece’s high school graduation celebration, and we just got home a little over an hour ago.  My husband did all the driving, bless his heart, but I’m still wiped out from being in the car all night, and a good chunk of today.  I loved spending time with our  my families, but it’s nice to be home!

My oldest 2 kids couldn’t get off work to come with us, so they stayed home and watched all of our animals, including a litter of 4 kittens that my daughter is fostering until they gain enough weight to be adopted out.  This adorable little guy is the runt of the litter, and is struggling to put any weight on at all, but the other 3 are gaining well.

I didn’t work on any new projects while I was gone, with the exception of making another barn quilt.  My mom liked mine, so my son and I quickly whipped one up for her.

So instead of a project, I have more vintage milk bottle caps images to share with you.  I picked these up from the same antique store as the last set that I shared (here).

This one is my favorite, with the drawings of cows grazing in a pasture.  I believe it is from a dairy in Maine.

This one is a bottle cap for orange drink.  I like the illustration on it as well.

This bottle cap is from a dairy in London.

I went to a few antique stores while I was traveling, but was very disciplined and only purchased 2 things, but my mother and mother-in-law both sent me home with a few things as well.

Well, I’m off to unpack my bags, and go through mail, then go to bed early.  I’m looking forward to working on a few project ideas I thought of while gone!

    Did you notice the bottle cap with the windmill on it. Is a cap for orange juice?

  2. I hope the sweet little kitten will gain some weight soon and hopefully they all find good new homes. It’s very sweet of your daughter to take care of them.
    The bottle caps are pretty. Thank you for sharing, Angie!
    Have fun with your projects!

  3. I guess Abram needs to come to visit us! Because I know mom wants a barn quilt(for the side of her house!) , I need one on my outbuilding, and I’m pretty sure Kathy will want one on her shed after it is rebuilt! How much does he charge?!

  4. With everything you’ve got going on, I’m surprised you are posting at all! I’m soooooo glad to hear that your trip was an enjoyable one and I dearly hope you are able to get all of the rest you need to recuperate from being on the road all of that time! How sweet of you and your son to take time out of your trip to make a barn quilt for your mother…I’ll bet she was overwhelmed with appreciation and what a great memory to build for all three of you…it is something you will smile about your entire lifetimes through! And brava to your daughter for looking after all of the wee ones who need mothering…I sooooo dearly hope the littlest one will pick up some weight soon!

    These milk caps are just so wonderful and cheery! You and I share a favourite in the Clifford Colby dairy milk cap…I just love that combination of red and green…and yes, the little illustration is uberly cute! Thank you so very much for sharing these little treasures with us, even despite surely being exhausted beyond belief! Here’s hoping life will go a little easier on you so you can get the rest you need…fingers firmly crossed!

    Angie, so glad your trip was a good one and you are home safely. The milk caps are SO pristine! I can’t imagine how they were kept that way, but someone was very careful with them. They are pretty. I don’t know what I would actually do with the images, tho’. How will you use them or how have you used them in the past?

    That darling kitten–he looks like a tortoise-shell by his markings. I love torties! I had one long ago whose name was Nutmeg. She was an amazing cat. She could jump from the floor to a person’s shoulder without scratching at all. She used to ride around on my then-husband’s shoulder while he rode his bike! I hope this little guy and the others find good homes.

    Have a good rest!
