3 Goosey, Goosey

Saturday, January 14, 2012

Last week we were visiting my in-laws house for dinner.  Just before we were about to leave I spotted a funny-looking thing laying on the kitchen counter.  My mother-in-law explained that my husband's paternal grandmother Grace had actually made it for her.  Ceramics were a hobby of hers, and she used to send pieces for her and the kids.  Ella has a couple of adorable bookends herself.

This particular goose is for mounting in the kitchen for things like kitchen towels.  I kind of fell in love with the kitschy thing, and my MIL told me I could have it, as she didn't have a good spot for it in her kitchen.  I knew exactly what I wanted to use it for - my apron collection.  I had had two clunky hooks, and the aprons were always falling all over the place.

Doesn't she look rather regal?

I don't care how corny she is, I love her!  I think she's cute, and totally practical.  I hope she stays for a long, long time.

That is wonderful. I love how it is practical and something from the family. Your MIL was probably happy to let it go knowing you would use it!

How cute that you used chalkboard paint to make a menu on your wall! I tried posting a menu once just to eliminate the "What's for dinner?" questions. I actually hated being tied down to it. Sometimes what's for dinner depends on what sounds good to me!

That chalkboard is actually a special decal I got from Groop Dealz a while back. I am sad to say I have yet to use it because I cannot find a chalk pen (like they use at Starbucks) locally, and all that I've foud online cost waaay too much. I don't want to use a regular piece of chalk because I don't want the dust. My life is so hard :( (j/k :)
