During these wet and snowy months of the year, I find I can never have sufficient wall hooks and coat racks. Whether I’m hanging up winter coats or wet hats and mittens, a wall full of handy hooks is best. Of course, they make sense the remainder of the year also, when sunlight hats and beach towels become involved. And remember that your kitchen and bathroom — I discovered hooks for there! — Emma in The Marion House Novel
