There are so many things in my home. Some have moved with me through the years (make that decades).
This ‘thing’ was hand-made: a mitten shape with a couple of clothespins to hold memos. It was made by the husband of a school secretary who gave it to me when I left a teaching job back in my 20s. I’ve made in to my 50s & I still cherish it. It hangs in my kitchen where I can use it to hold a recipe card, a shopping list, or a memo to self don’t forget… but I like it best just being there.
