aprons on a hay hook & a lefse turner
The red gingham apron was my Grandma Larson's. I have it hanging from a hay hook. I found this one at a yard sale but my Dad has one just like it. It's what farmers use to grab hold of those heavy bales of hay. I recently found the yellow gingham apron at my little thrift store for a dollar. I love seeing them together!
Hanging next to the aprons is a lefse turner. And not just any lefse turner... a Norske Nook lefse turner! That I got at a yard sale this past summer for a dollar!
The Norske Nook is a well known restaurant & bakery about 10 miles from our farm in Wisconsin. They serve a variety of home cooked Scandinavian dishes and THE best homemade pies on the planet! I'm serious! And it doesn't matter where I am, I will either meet someone from Wisconsin or tell someone I'm from Wisconsin and they will know of the Norske Nook! And btw, the owner Helen Myhre was on the David Letterman show many years ago to talk about her award-winning pies!
