If you own a television, chances are you have seen a few Swiffer commercials, reflecting humiliated brooms, mops, and dusters vying for the attention of their owner. To no avail, as the owner is having a much better time with their new Swiffer product than they ever did with that old broom.
The commercial always causes my husband to comment on the job the old broom did the whole time, just to be thrown out when something new comes along. It makes me giggle to think a commercial can cause people to have empathetic feelings for a broom or mop! In order to keep my hubby on his toes, I usually respond, "Well, obviously the old broom wasn't getting the job done!".
Recently, I saw a new commercial where instead of the lonely broom driving by it's old residence, it takes up with a lonely bowling ball in the closet. Someones trash is always anothers treasure. But, as you can see my broom is ready to be kicked to the curb. I only wonder how I can do this without my husband noticing. Perhaps, I'll stick it in the garage where it can hook-up with the snow shovel...

The best way to describe it is Deliriously Yummilicous!. Nice and airy in the center with a crust to be reckoned with. In the morning, it begs to be sliced and toasted with butter, yet, in the afternoon, drizzled with Olive Oil and served with a chunk of cheese!
This is a wonderful chance to bake an easy homemade bread so check out the recipe at: http://www.breadtopia.com/basic-no-knead-method/

The reader's submissions on the mystery item has been so much fun! Thanks to everyone! My mother loves her present and even more of a gift is the enjoyment of trying to discover what it is.
The Grunge Queen posted the item on her blog and reader's responses have been very insightful. She writes...
"Hi River-Rose, I posted it yesterday, thanks for sending!So far we have one for an incense burner and another for a hairspray holder - I Googled the latter and they actually exist!!"
The following is a submission from "Grace"...
"My guess is that your ornate cylinder is a vintage fireplace match holder. You know those huge fireplace matches, which can run to 11" long? Have a gander at the match holder that I found on the net: http://www.gascoals.net/Portals/1/accessories/052-wood-matchholder-winecaddy.jpg Although this one is wooden, decoupaged and trimmed with bronzed metal accents, I envision yours as serving the same purpose. I hope your mom loves it, should you decide to give it to her on her birthday! Cheers, Grace"
