I found this adorable vintage bread box on Craigslist. It is made of tin, painted, and decorated with decals.
My plan is to store the butter dish in here, to keep it away from my butter licking cat. He's figured out how to knock the lid off the butter boat. This bread box has 2 levels. The bottom level, for the bread and butter.
And the top level for other baked goodies.
The second picture is closest to the actual color. We'll see if this thwarts my cat's evil plans. For $5 it was worth a try.
