Happy St. Pat's........

This is my only saint patty's day decor.  Ted has been making these wooden platters. We are calling them bread platters. I'll post this week , some of the things he has made for the Farmer's Market, coming up at the end of next month. That Ted is one happy man while he's making saw dust.:):)
 Now he has even found a way to recycle the saw dust. If no walnut is in it can be put into compost , in moderation. He can make fire starters with it now.  You pack saw dust into a bathroom dixie cup, then drizzle canning wax in it. This is way cheaper than buying fire starters. I tell you, that man is handier than a shirt pocket. :):)


  1. 'appy St. Paddy's Day, Lass! Love the bread platter. What is it about saw dust that men love so much? Brings out the creative little boy in them, I guess. Have a great green day! -- Jan

  10. Hooray for recycling saw dust.

    Woodworking is great. Husband has been one, all his life.

    But saw dust on the garage/shop floor, can get tracked in the house. Eeeeek! -grin- Gather it up and use it some way.


  11. "Handier than a shirt pocket!" I love that. I'll have to remember that one for my husband and sons as they all are so handy too. Right now they're inside here painting!

  12. If you can't be handsome be handy...isnt that what Ted always says.
