What's an awesome summer without a vintage ice crusher for Susan's cocktails? 

Susan and her Aunt Eileen spent a Saturday going to yard sales. Upon first sight Aunt Eileen said I'm going to buy this for you and then bargained it down to less than ten dollars.

Susan's Swing-A-Way ice crusher's got a pretty gnarly grindy blade thing under the hood, Susan thought she heard a cube scream as she shoved it down there and cranked it into little frozen pebbles for her alcoholist pleasure.

Love the vintage ice crusher. I am certain my parents had one. I recognized it immediately. Excellent find!

They also had an electric one, white in color. Looked like a small bread machine and you popped the cubes in a small hole one at a time. My Dad was a gadget guy.

We had one of those ice crushers and it came in very useful when I was pregnant with my son as I had constant cravings for ice. And so my husband would be crunching it up for me in that little gadget at all hours of the day and night. I suspect it may have been him that "lost" it !!

Since I myself have become vintage I find that I am drawn to other vintage things.
