Local Talent

One of the many reasons I love living here is the amazingly talented folks that surround us.  I've spoken about the potters on more than one occasion, but there are other wonderful folks that deserve a mention.  We've recently been collaborating with local woodworker James Watt on our tables.  The sweet little walnut box above is his work, as well as the tabletop below.  Joseph made the table base and copper ginkgo leaves, which James incorporated into a walnut tabletop for a couples copper anniversary gift.  The feedback we received was filled with oohs and aahs and actual tears of joy for this lovely piece.  In addition to the custom link above, James has a small etsy shop that's worth checking out.

The amaryllis I planted at Christmas is almost about to open.  Bring on the blooms!
