The other night I was trying to catch up on reading my favorite blogs.
I don’t know how I get so behind…I am really not that busy.
Anyway, I was reading Josie’s post at
Two Shoes in Texas;
she was writing about a keepsake of hers.
Her mother’s wooden spoon.
One of the keepsakes in my kitchen belonged to my gramma.
This is Sprinkle Plenty.
Back in the day everyone had a “sprinkle bottle”.
After the laundry was washed and dried,
whatever needed to be ironed, which was most everything,
would be sprinkled with water from the sprinkle bottle,
rolled up, let sit for a while, then ironed.
My mother used a regular old bottle with a sprinkler top.
When Gramma died Ma used Sprinkle Plenty.
Now that Ma is gone I have him.
When Sprinkle Plenty came to my house he retired.
We are both very happy about that.
