Red Handled Ricer

Mom had several red handled kitchen tools, this ricer was one of them. I remember seeing it in the kitchen drawer but I never saw her use it.

Frustration Pencils

My sister and I bought these one year before Christmas. I think I was in grade 6 or 7 and I remember it vividly. We were in Corner Brook shopping with our parents. We were at Woolworths on West Street and the store had a small Christmas tree decorated with the frustration pencils. They had a little tag attached to them with this saying: "When you're frustrated and don't know what to do, twirl me between your hands and I'll blow my top for you". We thought they were so neat.

Rooster Potholder

My aunt had a potholder like this, it had a magnet in the loop and she kept it on the side of her fridge. Funny the little things I remember.

School Desk

This was the type of desk I used when I was in elementary school, in the 70's. I haven't been in a classroom in a long time so I don't know if this type of desk is still in use.

Ogilvie Cookbook

Mom had this cookbook and it was well used. The jacket was missing but it had a pink hard cover. I remember making a coconut cake using a recipe from this cookbook when I was a teenager.
