Ode to Mother's Crock-pot
It's wrapped in avocado green ceramic. Swirls of dark brown decorate the edge. Countless dips and roasts have cooked in its rust porcelain interior. It's my mother's wedding gift crock-pot and it's still going strong. (I think I've been through two in just ten years...)
We have a fun challenge for you at CAS-ual Fridays! Reminisce in your childhood and come play some Tic-Tac-Toe with us! Use any line across, down or diagonal to choose the elements for your absolutely fabulous clean and simple design that I know you are going to create. We have a fabulous sponsor and CAS-ual Fridays Temp (aka: guest designer), Tami Mayberry, so please stop by the CAS-ual Fridays Blog for challenge rules, prize details and super inspiration from the Girl Fridays.
Yes, a crock-pot was the inspiration for this card! I was going through pictures of my last vacation and spotted the counter top full of goodies at my sister's house. There, sitting rather squat but proud, and full of yummy baked beans, was my mother's crock-pot. I noticed that a felt sticker from my stash matched the design on the crock pot. I adhered the sticker to woodgrain paneling (hah!) and wrapped the piece with some twine.
