If reading ‘let it go’ makes you think of the song from frozen… scroll to the bottom of this post :-).
I made this spoon rest when I was in my high school art class. We did many of different kinds of ceramics and this was one of my first objects made from a mold.
I graduated from high school in 1974. My mom used this for a while and at some point she gave it back to me. This spoon rest has lived on our kitchen counter for so many years that I it is hard to imagine the stove top without it nearby.
Imagine my consternation when I realized that this prized possession has developed a major crack. What to do? I could try to fix it, but I know that it just wouldn’t be the same. Steve suggested that I put it up in the cupboard but that makes no sense. I can imagine one of the boys or my DIL reaching into the cabinet some day and wondering why on earth I thought that this cracked ceramic corn was worthy of saving.
It’s time to let it go, and it’s only fair that I be the one to do just that. You know what, it wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be!
I hummed the song on the way to the outside trash bin…
