Among My Fav-o-rite Things: Kitchen Driftwood

Each year many gnarled pieces of driftwood wash ashore on our beach.

One of the most ingenious uses of driftwood is this utensil holder that Laura, as a young girl, made for her grandparents and mounted above the stove.  Dan says the driftwood reminds him of a seahorse, others comment that it is reminiscent of a dinosaur or other prehistoric animal.  Whatever its shape suggests, it is quite handy for the cook to have these utensils close at hand.

This has been in the Marble Mountain house since I first knew it, and it is among my favorite things here.
