A Mother’s Day gift arranged in the kitchen sink from my teenage son. In lieu of a card, there’s a pink duct tape message. :)

Repurpose- Gravy Boat

classicgravyboatcandy-opt

I was disappointed to learn that Crate & Barrel stopped selling their ‘Classic Century’ dinnerware by Eva Zeisel. By the time I got to a local store, most of the pieces had sold out except for a single gravy boat. It was too nice to pass up. But I nixed the idea of using it for gravy and filled it with holiday candy instead. Come Spring I’ll have something else in it. Stay tuned. :)
