Y’all made me feel a lot better about my nasty potholders. So tell me: who most needs a pair of new ones?

GIMME! I hope that last potholder wins. It’s sad.
Gimme! Please! Thanks for a chance at the giveaway.
Oh my – how can you choose just one? Thanks for the opportunity!
Gimme! My money’s on the Little Potholder That Couldn’t.
Ahh – forgot to say GIMME!
Gimmie – what fun!
gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight! (or a fun prize!)
That prison one is awesome.
Wow… I thought mine were bad…. not even. Gimme gimme (hmmm.. Black Flag song?)
GIMME! I’ve seen some yucky potholders before but that last one doesn’t look like it would be even remotely effective.
The little potholder that couldn’t…and never, ever, will.
Holy cow… I think I actually had a potholder that was worse than that last one. But I threw it away finally. Ugh!
oh those poor potholders
Proving that the best food can be made with the worst kitchen tools…..GIMME!!!!!!!
GIMME a happy christmas, won’t you?!
That last potholder was an ornament on Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree, I think.
Also, thanks for the chance to enter, what an awesome shop.
Sad, sad little potholder that couldn’t. It should just be put out of its misery, but who would have the heart to do it? GIMME!!!
Gimme, gimme, gimme. I love Roosevelvet’s stuff.
The last one was pretty durn bad – but I had to give the homemade beauty a little love. I mean, it took someone some serious time with a Michael’s Pot Holder Making Kit to create that – and look what it has come to … the shame.
gimme. I kinda wish I had the Arkansas Correctional Industries one, so I wouldn’t get burned.
But please do not gimme any of those f’ing potholders. I should of entered one of the ones we found while cleaning out Gramma’s house though. 50 years of encrusted gunk and mice poo makes a damn fine entry, but my mom threw it out before I get a shot. Foiled.
gimme, gimme, gimme!
Gimme some love for my Arkansas prison potholder! (I did have a matched pair, but I lost one…or someone took it…)
Gimme and thanks for the giveaways & discounts! Lovelovelove this site & your writing!
GIMME! The last potholder fills me with sadness. The correctional potholder, on the other hand, fills me with glee. I don’t know why.
“Gimme gimme never gets, haven’t you learned manners yet?”
Uh… no I haven’t. GIMME!
Gimme, Gimme, Gimme some free merch, please.
And blast it all. I completely forgot to email a picture of mine in time. I blame it on Thanksgiving, though I’m not sure it could have stood up the the Little Potholder that Couldn’t or Handmade Horror.
Also, I have a soft spot in my heart for that homemade potholder because I’m sure my mom has a similar one lovingly saved in her kitchen closet somewhere.
Please please gimme gimme.
jeez. my potholders are suckier than any of these. i hide them because i am afraid to acknowledge that they may have grazed my food.
Gimmie, gimmie, pretty please. If I had potholders like that, I would be a sleaze!
GIMME! I love the DOC one — your guests will wonder if you got it because you served time
Or, if you prefer, GIMME!
GIMME -Oh I love that handmade horror – you know he/she can’t give it up because someone special made it – even though that someone special is probably saying, “Mom, throw it away already!”
OK – I voted….now gimme! I’ve seen some sorry-ass potholders, but I throw them away before they get as bad as the last one. happy holidays!
GIMME!! I voted….damn, makes my potholders look absolutely AWESOME!
the Little Potholder That Couln’t reminds me of a maurice sendak monster.
gimme – i like free stuff!
GIMME! I feel such pride for my sad hand-burning potholders now. They may hold their heads high (easy to do with all that stuck on crap!).
Seriously, I had a difficult time believing that one potholder could withstand all the abuse of that last one…and remain in a household.
I never thought my pot holders were any kind of nice until I saw the selection you posted here. Wow.
gimme (had to)
The poor Strawberry/fruit potholder never had a chance with that last horror. You know, it’s contests like these that make me wonder if someone keeps those things out of sheer morbidity, or the chance of entering (and winning) a contest like this.
Kind of like those stinkiest shoe contests…someone is ACTUALLY wandering around with a pair of tennies so filthy you can’t tell the original color of the duct tape holding them together?
Anysnooch, “There are no words” definitely deserves a new pair, because holy hand grenade of Antioch, I want to take a shower from looking at the photo.
Gimme!!!! Now I see my filthy but cute mitt never had a chance!
But if I don’t win, I’m *totally* getting me some inmate merch.
I stole the homemade horror from my mom’s drawer a few years ago. When I asked her if I made it she said “probably” So much for sentimentality. That would put the carbon dating in the mid to late 1950’s.
Well, even though it’s not going to win, I will continue to love (and use) it. I also LOVE the Ark Dept of Corrections one…and I live in Arkansas! Guess I’ll have to stop by the gift shop next time I go.
Gimmie. I have a handmade horror, and I’m keeping it.
Gimmie! I visualized each of these monstrosities lying on my kitchen counter and decided that the pig’s head disturbed me the most. Eeyuugh.
please tell me there’ll be a ceremonial burning of the “winning” potholder.
the last one is definately the grossest… but i judged by which one id least want to be anywhere near my food, and the surprise winner was the homemade horror. maybe its the wan, pukey color. at least the last one is attempting some pathetic cheer.
GIMME too please. Love, love the Paper Goods by Roosevelvet on Etsy.
Gimme the pig and cow holders any day of the week.
Sadly, I think some of my potholders could be contenders here. Oh well. Gimme!
Please don’t burn the ‘winner’ of the poll. I’d worry about the fumes produced killing off all life in a three mile radius.
Gimme a T! T!
Gimme an N! N!
Gimme an S! S!
TNS! TNS! Rah Rah Rah!
TNS! TNS! Sis-boom-bah!
That last potholder? It should never, ever be allowed near anything a person will put in their mouth.
Roosevelvet’s prints are super awesome – GIMME!
GIMME please. Thank you!
