I just ordered one of these little beauties for the hostess of my Super Secret Summer Sewing Sircle.
I'd never seen one of them, because pie vents must be an English invention. Peace says I've watched enough English films for me to have run across one of these fru-fru kitchen gadgets. Somehow I've missed all the Jane Austin's pie baking scenes. This morning I found a photo of the blackbird pie vent in my very first Mary Jane's Farm magazine. The magazine is a treat for me in itself with all it's quaint layouts and informative articles.
Apparently the blackbird whistles with steam which has me positively smitten.
