This is going to be a very random post about what's been happening at the Sow's Ear.
The back stairs are finally painted. The deck posts and underneath the deck still need to be done. This painting gig just never seems to end... Jason is also going to sand the treads (to remove a few paint drips) and oil the wood over the Christmas break among other things he has planned. I told him to have a day off on Christmas Day!
Three little candle holders which look like ice-cubes for my kitchen shelf. A gift from a lovely friend.
A minuscule carrot from the garden. It almost seemed cruel to pluck it out of the dirt.
The Christmas tree. This is the third Christmas we are celebrating at the Sow's Ear and every year the tree moves to a different location. This spot doesn't work for me but I'm not game to move it...
New blue Italian pottery, possibly Bitossi, which I just adore. A very generous offering from a friend.
Some gorgeous handmade lavender soap; it smells divine and is made from all natural ingredients. Another gift from another lovely friend. I'm very lucky to know some great people!
I hope you all had a great weekend!
