This was a birthday gift from my very good friend, Marie. Isn’t it just so great? I love it!! Marie was so excited to give it to me – of course she had it custom made for me and was disappointed they couldn’t fit Mary Frances (nine is their maximum letter amount) – but no matter. I was using extra pitchers to hold my utensils but they get narrower at the top so what they can hold is limited. This, besides being beautiful, holds a ton, as the mouth is the same circumference as the bottom. And of course, it always starts a conversation in my kitchen! LOVE it!
