May we remember

"And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the soldier's tomb a beauty weeps the brave." As we set today aside to honor and thank our veterans, let us be mindful that we should do this every day of the year and not just one. We take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
We are open Saturday 10-6 and closed Monday for Memorial Day.

Bee Skeps

These handwoven wicker bee skeps are wonderful summer objects of interest. Display them in your home or porch. Skeps are a popular feature in garden art and home decor. Also love the pops of color in these new garden pillows and down filled designer ivy fabric pillows in beautiful neutral soft colors.
A domed shaped basket often made of straw or dried grass; the bee skep is one of the most iconic representations of beekeeping. Beekeepers used these handmade structures to house honey bee colonies for thousands of years. No one knows for sure where the idea of this hive design began. The word skep is thought to have come from the Nordic work – “skeppa” – a basket measure of grain. While straw is the most common material, skeps were also made using clay in parts of Egypt. In some areas, early skeps were made of wicker and covered with a mud plaster. Honey bees are not native to North America. They were brought over by early colonists. The new world offered an abundance of wood and few artisans skilled in skep construction.

In the French tradition, charcuterie (pronounced "shahr-ku-tuh-ree") is the art of preparing and assembling cured meats and meat products. Charcuterie is a branch of cooking involving prepared meats, such as ham, sausage, bacon, confit, or other pork products. The word charcuterie originated in France, and it translates to "pork-butcher shop." In French, the cook who prepares the meat is called a Charcutier.
