Comments about Product: Bought to cover sliding glass doors in kitchen--a great choice! Keeps heat and cold out, look beautiful, look great from outside.
Comments about Product: These curtains were purchased for wide windows in a bedroom. They allow some light but also provide good privacy. The grommets make them easy to open and close, but also add a lot of style to the curtains.
Comments about Product: I bought two for my patio doors and absolutely love the way they look. Although direct sun is blocked, they are sheer enough to show daylight, keeping the room from being darkened and giving them a watery, silky look. The product description said machine-washable, but the care instructions state dry clean. I'm glad for the discrepancy as I would not have bought them otherwise and I think I can cold water soak them to clean. The only thing I'm not sure of is how to remove the wrinkles from being folded. I don't know if using a steamer will harm the material.

So pretty and practical
Comments about Product: We hung these in our living room that gets strong afternoon sun and they look beautiful. They let in light but cut down on the strong sun. Exactly what I was looking for!

Comments about Product: Purchased these for sliding glass doors. I did use two panels on each side to get a bit more fullness to the look. They are very nice. Well made, hang great, high quality material. I ordered another pair for my living room picture window. Looks great. I just ordered more,for some narrow side windows in my living room. These are very nice, high quality curtains and at a great price. Also- don't worry about the wrinkles from packaging. Just hang them an within a day or two the wrinkles are gone.

Comments about Product: Very beautiful curtains. They give us privacy on a big bay window, but still let the light filter in. Very happy with the purchase

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
