Just What I Needed
I picked up this little goodie at Goodwill a few days ago. I know it doesn't look like much, but it was just what I needed!
What did I need it for? To hold my rolling pins, of course.
I love rolling pins. The real old one on top nearest to the camera is one that belonged to my mom. She gave it to me a few years after I got married. She didn't remember where she got it. But it is old and hand carved and I love it. I'm thinking one of my grandpas may have been the maker of it.
The one with the red handle belonged to my Aunt Irma. On one of my last visits to her house, she gave it to me. She said she had it since she was first married in the late 1940s.
The two on the bottom are just a couple I picked up at either a yard sale, a road side sale or a thrift store.
The other two, including that beautiful one with the different types of wood, were made by my son, Andrew. He is just about the best woodcrafter I know! Go here to see the many beautiful things he has made me.
I haven't been feeling up to par the last couple of weeks and that is why I haven't been blogging much.
I was taking some medicine. After being on it for three weeks, my body decided not to tolerate it. After a week of bad side effects, I stopped taking it and then I went through the next week of having the side effects of coming off the medicine. Thank goodness, I think I am over the hump now and getting close to normal again.
