Patio Decoration

These are just a couple of pics I took of some of the plants we have growing on our patio this summer, the summer which is now half over sadly. But then the glass is still half full so we best enjoy it while we can for soon enough the snow will fly once more. Even snow can be beautiful for that matter if only it wasn't so cold.

My latest endeavor since its Mojito season is the Muddler. Every Great Bartender needs a good high quality Muddler and I believe mine fit the bill so to speak. The Cherry one was Custom ordered and is sold but the Deluxe 11" and the 8" Birds Eye Maple are still for sale in my shop at The prices are $50.00 U.S. for the Deluxe Model which is Turned from a combination of Maple,Walnut,Alder,Purple Heart and Ash Wood and $35.00 U.S. for the 8" Birds Eye Maple and that includes shipping and handling. An absolute Bargin and a fantastic gift for your favorite Bartender.
