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.
