allegheny treenware makes the beautiful spoons, forks and cake servers. after i purchased these for our kitchen, i went back and bought more cake servers for christmas prezzies. mine are cherry, maple and fiddleback maple. they are all incredibly reasonably priced.
couldn't resist buying this spun pewter tankard for my son. the deer antler handle is very comfortable in the hand. thomas pierson is the metalsmith, no website, email firstname.lastname@example.org
sneaking away from terri for a minute, i picked these blue glass earrings for dd, and an adorable pair of handmade glass sheep earrings for a hostess present for terri. karen hill of riderwood maryland makes the glass jewelry.
alas, i discarded the tag from this wood basket, i know they didn't have a website on the tag.
i love it. luckily terri and i snagged them right away, as when we went back, there was only one left, hidden in the display. the sides are spalted maple, and the slats are walnut, maple and cherry.
the basket makes a handy sock caddy :-)
on the needles, another pair of eleanora stockings, they are really too elegant to be socks. the first time i started knitting a different pattern with this yarn, it cried out, no no! i am too rich a gold to be any other stockings than eleanora! so i obliged.
cloudy saturday sky for sandy, nice and cool.
