No frogging

I lost my 98 yo grandmother last October. As we were going through her things, my aunts said "okay, what do we do  with  THE frog?" My grandma's  sister had given her this scour pad holder and it has been a joke as long as I  can remember who would  get 'stuck with it'. I giggled then thought, what a great memory of grandma and my great aunt and a great use with another meaning for me.......a frog ort holder.
