Our good friend, Therese, passed away in 2008. We miss her a lot. Recently, her home sold and her elder daughter traveled to New Bern to dispose of Therese’s furnishings.
Kathryn graciously offered us her mom's iron frying pans and a Dutch oven. We were thrilled to take them. They’re totally nonstick from many years of seasoning. I plan on making bread in the Dutch oven. The small frying pan (originally Therese’s mother’s) is being used a lot these days.
At Kathryn’s invitation, I went through Therese’s cookbooks and took the ones I thought either I or my cooking son and DIL would want. They’ll be put to good use.
My hubby spotted an Oriental fish bowl in the pile for Habitat and asked if we could have it. Kathryn was happy to give it to us. The colors are perfect for our home, and we already have Oriental accents throughout. We bought a stand for the fishbowl and found the perfect spot for it. Though the area is somewhat dark, away from windows, we wanted a live plant. Sansevieria (snake plant) was the perfect choice, and Guy has already dubbed it, “Sister Therese.” Easy to grow and thriving in low-light conditions, this plant will be part of our living memorial to a dearly loved friend.
