I know everyone has been waiting on pins and needles for the new aprons to come out. Well — here they are. There are new aprons that have been added to the site, WITH MORE TO COME!

The variety is getting bigger, with a brand new design that features a tea-length apron. Get them while they last…because they may not

And remember, we always welcome custom orders. You will actually notice two of those on the site as well. So feel free to say, “Hey, can  you do this?”

As always,

Thanks for taking a peek at our new products!

Green Curve Teapot

I’m extremely excited to say that today’s favorite is a fellow Louisvillian! This piece is by Jeff Campana of Campana Ceramics. I saw this teapot and instantly thought “Want it”. I then looked through the rest of Jeff’s shop and thought….”Want it, want it, want it.” I look forward to watching this shop grow and hopefully adding a piece to my own teapot collection in the future.

 To explain his process, I’m going to copy Jeff’s own words from his Etsy shop:

“Each item here has been individually thrown (in at least 2 parts), trimmed, and then cut apart and reassembled in order to give them my distinctive linear patterns, visible inside and out. “

The result is a new, original twist on an age-old art.

I find the lines interesting, soothing and extremely pleasing to look at. I didn’t get to take Ceramics in school until my Senior year. I am truly sorry that I waited so long. If I only had it to do over again! Oh wait! I can!

While I’m working on my custom orders, I needed to also put some new stuff up on the site. We’ve sold 15 items already this month! The shop was looking a little bare. So, I whipped out these babies. Let us know what you think.

Wow. It may not seem like much, but I’m kind of proud of myself. It will be two weeks tomorrow and except wondering if someone snuck some shredded crab into my pasta sauce at a restaurant on Friday night, I have eaten nothing that has a face for two weeks!

Cravings are present, but minimal. And I am finding that since I am eating extremely healthily, I do not feel guilty at all if I have a treat every few days. Not a huge one, but something that feels treat-ish.

I am also down 7 pounds as of this morning! Whoo!

So, on we go. I need more recipes and would love cookbook suggestions if you got ’em!

Today is going well. I’m not craving meat yet, which is good. I had oatmeal for breakfast, a couple of bananas and a vegetarian burrito for lunch. As I was eating it, I read the ingredients and saw that it contained casein (a milk protein). Crap.  Oh well, all I can do is read labels more carefully. Other than that it was good. The cheese was soy cheese and with the beans and rice it was pretty tasty.

And I’m only allowing myself Diet Coke during work hours. Water only at home. I’m trying to figure out why I’m not sleeping well, so I’m cutting the caffiene earlier than usual. Downside? I’m going to the bathroom every 20 minutes. I’ll probably drop 5 pounds in water very quickly.

I need to get a good vegetarian cookbook. I have no idea what I’m going to have for dinner.

But maybe not the type you would expect.

I’ve reached the age where I’m starting to remember my childhood fondly. There was much about it that I wasn’t so fond of, but the good stuff is starting to get that soft glow around the edges and pop into my brain at the oddest times.

You remember that uncle I told you about in the post about my fave Halloween items on Etsy? Well, guess what! I called him and he very nicely offered to go dig up the book with the story in it that creeped me out so badly when I was a child.

These were the books. Used sets are available online. I know what I’m asking for for Christmas!!! The books are called ‘The Junior Classics’ By P.F. Collier & Son Corp. The story in question came from Vol. One, Fairy Tales & Fables. The particular section is “Tales from England”. England! I had no idea. I would have put money on Russia.

The story is below. Seriously. This gave me the heebie jeebies for years.
**WARNING** Visciousness to poor dog Turpie and mean-a** farmer within. Actually, it never says he’s a farmer, I’m just assuming, it just says old man. Wonder where they got a little girl….

The Hobyahs

ONCE there was an old man and woman and a little girl, and they all lived in a house made of hempstalks. Now the old man had a little dog named Turpie and one night the Hobyahs came and said, ‘Hobyah! Hobyah! Hobyah! Tear down the hempstalks, eat up the old man and woman, and carry off the little girl!’ But little dog Turpie barked so that the Hobyahs ran off; and the old man said, ‘Little dog Turpie barks so that I cannot sleep nor slumber, and if I live till morning I will cut off his tail.’ So in the morning the old man cut off little dog Turpie’s tail.

The next night the Hobyahs came again, and said, ‘Hobyah! Hobyah! Hobyah! Tear down the hempstalks, eat up the old man and woman, and carry off the little girl!’ But little dog Turpie barked so that the Hobyahs ran off; and the old man said, ‘Little dog Turpie barks so that I cannot sleep nor slumber, and if I live till morning I will cut off one of his legs.’ So in the morning the old man cut off one of little dog Turpie’s legs.

The next night the Hobyahs came again, and said, ‘Hobyah! Hobyah! Hobyah! Tear down the hempstalks, eat up the old man and woman, and carry off the little girl!’ But little dog Turpie barked so that the Hobyahs ran off; and the old man said, ‘Little dog Turpie barks so that I cannot sleep nor slumber, and if I live till morning I will cut off another of his legs.’ So in the morning the old man cut off another of little dog Turpie’s legs.

The next night the Hobyahs came again, and said ‘Hobyah! Hobyah! Hobyah! Tear down the hempstalks, eat up the old man and woman, and carry off the little girl!’ But little dog Turpie barked so that the Hobyahs ran off; and the old man said, ‘Little dog Turpie barks so that I cannot sleep nor slumber, and if I live till morning I will cut off another of his legs.’ So in the morning the old man cut off another of little dog Turpie’s legs.

The next night the Hobyahs came again, and said ‘Hobyah! Hobyah! Hobyah! Tear down the hempstalks, eat up the old man and woman, and carry off the little girl!’ But little dog Turpie barked so that the Hobyahs ran off; and the old man said, ‘Little dog Turpie barks so that I cannot sleep nor slumber, and if I live till morning I will cut off another of his legs.’ So in the morning the old man cut off another of little dog Turpie’s legs.

The next night the Hobyahs came again, and said ‘Hobyah! Hobyah! Hobyah! Tear down the hempstalks, eat up the old man and woman, and carry off the little girl!’ But little dog Turpie barked so that the Hobyahs ran off; and the old man said, ‘Little dog Turpie barks so that I cannot sleep nor slumber, and if I live till morning I will cut off little dog Turpie’s head.’ So in the morning the old man cut off little dog Turpie’ s head.

The next night the Hobyahs came again, and said ‘Hobyah! Hobyah! Hobyah! Tear down the hempstalks, eat up the old man and woman, and carry off the little girl!’ And when the Hobyahs found that little do Turpie’s head was off they tore down hempstalks, ate up the woman, and carried the a bag.

And when the Hobyahs came to their home they hung up the bag with the little girl in it, and every Hobyah knocked on the top of the bag and said, ‘Look me! look me!’ And then they went to sleep until the next night, for the Hobyahs slept in the daytime.

The little girl cried a great deal, and a man with a big dog came that way and heard her crying. When he asked her how she came there and she told him, he put the dog in the bag and took the little girl to his home.

The next night the Hobyahs took down the bag and knocked at the top of it, and said ‘Look me, look me!’ and when they opened the bag the big dog jumped out and ate them all up; so there are no Hobyahs now.
