Remember those aluminum drinking glasses?

soxxxxJuly 17, 2010

In the late 40's and early 50's the Borden milkman delivered dairy products as well as milk to homes. My mother bought cottage cheese in colorful aluminum glasses about 6 inches tall.

I have a few and need ideas about repurposing them.

One idea I have is to invert them and somehow add clappers to make bells.

Put on your "thinking caps" as my first grade teacher would say. Wonder where that expression came from.

I remember them well. Now that you've reminded me, I want to get Mom's if she still has them. But I may want to drink out of them. I often need unbreakable glasses and if I recall correctly they were much nicer to drink from than plastic.

STill curious to see what you come up with tho!

I'd use them to drink out of or eat out of. Mix a milk shake in one it will stay cold a long time!! Enjoy!
