Handmade Ceramic Sake Set

I just wrapped up this sake set for local delivery. The buyer said she’s planning to give it to the guy “who has everything”.










It looks so pretty to me, I wanted to share it with you.

How to Soothe a Burn

Do you want to know how to soothe a burn?
Blisters. Ouch.

First, one ground rule: never wipe the crumbs off of a burner with your hand. Never mind that you didn’t realize it was just used a moment ago to boil water for somebody else’s tea. What were crumbs doing there anyway?

But you’re in a rush, so I’ll get to the remedy straight away.

Make a paste of baking soda and water. It should be pasty, not liquidy.

Put a thick dollop all over the burn and keep it there for a few minutes. It will work rapidly to cool the pain. Each time you feel the pain returning, reapply the paste.

Rinse and repeat until the pain subsides.

Burying Treasure

Here is the behind the scenes from Cap’n Sheva Bartholemew Red’s expedition to the nether regions to bury the treasure.

Scoping out the lay of the land
hop skip and jump 
Navigating the challenging terrain

First mate, Zozie-bird
always time for the paparazzi
The paparazzi close on our heels

The Cap’n marks the spot on the map
