I keep re-discovering that my mother is an amazing woman with her own creative way of looking at life and using the mundane for fantastic things.
Exhibit A: The potholder earring holder.
I gave a store bought kit of potholders to my nieces as part of an Easter basket gift. They loved it of course and went straight to work creating a half dozen pot holders of various shapes and colors for my mom.
Instead of cramming all those extra squares into a kitchen drawer my mother found this for it. She pinned all her earrings to it and hung in a location close to her car keys. My mother is of the belief that she is not ready to leave the house until she has used the toilet (even for a five minute drive), put on her tinted lip gloss and put on a cute pair of earrings.
I love you, mama.
