Rustic Wares

Alright so I'm horrible at remembering birthdays.  I hope no one ever takes it personally when I call to wish them a happy birthday, and I'm a couple of days late.  Well last week was no exception, and I missed a couple of birthdays (actually I did manage to sneak a very last minute phone call to one).  Anyhow in order to redeem myself to one friend who always is helping me out, I thought cookies were in order.  The thing about making cookies in my house however, is that somehow after making a full batch, there is only a few that stay around long enough to be given away.  I don't know if you have the same problem, but I can tell you taking a paper plate to a friends with seven cookies on it, looks pretty pathetic, especially if your trying to save face for forgetting her birthday in the first place.  So I came up with an idea.  After grabbing from my stash, and a bout with my wood burner, I had the perfect delivery dish for my sweet friend.

I chose chickens to represent her and her six girls & one rooster for her hubby

My husband has tinkered with wood since his 8th grade shop class.  His most recent creations are these cake stands, and other carved handiwork.

This is a huge acorn, and the top comes off to reveal a carved out bowl!
 So his new hobby gives us some more treasures for our upcoming gathering, come check them out, I'll even throw in the seven cookies.
