When I was in Wellington last weekend my parents celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary. Each of us were given a present and I love mine. It was a spontaneous gesture. This dust cloth holder was made by a friend of my mother’s and given at her kitchen party prior to marrying. So it is over 60 years old and part of my childhood – on a hook in the broom cupboard full of cleaning cloths. My mum knew how much I liked it and now it is in my house! It is so memory evoking.
