Salt Cellars

As we continue to finish up the pizza oven exterior (currently working on the pizza oven doors), we shift our attention to the ‘accompaniments’ to the pizza oven.  Not only will be have to develop custom drawers and ‘tool rack’, we’ll have to develop the tools themselves (pizza peel, brush, etc.) and a system to break them down for storage.  Alas, we are not quite there yet.

But we did find time to make salt cellars for the salt, crushed red pepper, and oregano condiments that will accompany the pizzas once they are finally coming out of the oven.

We made several… out of red heart cedar… and spruce.  They’ll make great details for our custom pizza oven.  I’m ready to make pizza… too bad our pizza oven isn’t.

First Snow

I must admit, I never ever thought I could get used to snow.  I hate the cold.

But never say never.  Now that we live somewhere where we have 4 seasons, I enjoy every one of them… including the snow.  There is something pristine and innocent about the beauty and cleanness of snow.

It hangs on the trees and coats the ground in white fluffy clumps.  If one is lucky, the first snow of the year coincides with the end of fall… and changing of the colors, yielding an intersection of seasons in all it’s beauty.  Check out my Snow Trees post on kritterspix.com.
