Wooden Lazy Susan Like Grannys-tinyos

Home-and-Family Of all the things I remember about my early childhood, the memory of grandma’s dark walnut-colored wooden Lazy Susan with stacks of freshly baked muffins waiting for me every Sunday morning is something that will always fill my heart with joy. While remodeling my kitchen, I decided that I would try and recapture part of my youth, and find a wooden Lazy Susan exactly like Granny’s. This was not at all easy to ac.plish. Granny’s wooden Lazy Susan was not only dark walnut in color, but it also had the most delicate flowers carved on the edges. It also came with a matching hors d’oeuvres tray and a cutting board. I felt like my newly-renovated kitchen would not be .plete if I could not find, if not the same, then at least a set as elegant as Granny’s. At first, I tried to look in our local kitchenware store. I didn’t find anything even close. I did find some, but mostly they were glass or plastic, nothing worthy of my attention. Someone told me that there was a large warehouse close by that had a large selection of wooden Lazy Susans, so me and my friend headed out there one weekend. Again, the visit was a disappointment. The warehouse had quite a lot of wooden Lazy Susans but hey were mostly just plain oak. No decorations, and certainly not matched in any set of any sort. This trip led me to believe that maybe such a beautiful, well-crafted wooden Lazy Susan is a thing of the past. So I went to all the antique shops I could find, attended different yard sales and garage sales but no luck! I began to think that the artist that crafted my grandmother’s wooden Lazy Susan had no modern counterpart in our times; maybe he was even the ‘Leonardo Da Vinci of wooden Lazy Susans.’ My friend had given up on this wild goose chase, and he told me that maybe this whole thing was not just about perfecting my newly decorating kitchen. He felt that I was chasing after the .forts of my childhood, and everything that my grandmother stood for. "Perhaps you’re subconsciously refusing to grow up." He said. I let him know that I was not refusing to grow up, but looking for something functional for my new kitchen. It was just about buying a wooden Lazy Susan!! To show him, I decided to give up and f.et about the whole thing. Yet, secretly that night, I crept out of bed and surfed the web looking for a wooden Lazy Susan that looked just like my Granny’s.
