Here is the sculpture of Gabriella (see previous post)
that Gapetto created. I LOVE her - unfortunately Gapetto
made it for his mother (dubbed Yoda by my sister).
But they live three doors down so I get to see her (Gabriella
AND my mother-in-law) when ever I want to. And then
sometimes when I don't - but I digress...
Gapetto and I are both graphic designers - so we often
will choose form over function - at least for ourselves.
Case in point, we have an antique 1950's O'Keefe and
Merritt stove in our kitchen like this one.
You've seen it a million times on TV - it's always in the
background of some young hipsters apartment. We
renovated our kitchen and HAD to have it. It had been
restored after all... just not necessarily to working order.
The ovens are 50 degrees off - one side 50 degrees cooler -
one side 50 degrees warmer. My peri-menopausal mind
cannot keep track of which is which. So I bought those
little oven thermometers to stick in each one to help me.
But they disappeared! Now I know I can get dingy -
but how the heck do you lose thermometers from an oven?
I know this photo of Gabriella is low res but if you look
closely you may notice she has thermometers for eyes!
Nothing metal is safe in my house!
