Comments about Product: This peaceful dove adds her own sweet touch of serenity to our enchanted garden patio. A perfect reminder to let our worries or cares fly away and to "just be" while we're in this place and time.
Comments about Product: This little bird is so cute. I put him on a flat rock in our water feature and everyone comments on how he looks like he's taking a bath. The real birds take a bath right along side of him. It's great. The only unfortunate situation is that his wings are a little heavy for the base so he tips over if a bird bumps into him and some night time wildlife must have bumped him and his wing broke. Very sad because he was so cute. If only the base was a little larger or heavier.
Comments about Product: Wanted to be pleased with these flutter birds. Bought two. One is not too bad, can see both eyes, but there is glob of cement permanently stuck on tail. The other only has one eye. Don't understand how the company would even send these out. Not at all pleased with these. Wondered why take so long to ship? Not because they are taking pride in crafting.
Comments about Product: Saw these and ordered two. Used them for our wedding. Ceremony was on an outside veranda and the dessert bar (a mix of 8" cakes on different height vintage cake plates) was set up inside a lots-of-windows room. The flutter birds brought some of the outside in and added just the right touch atop the dessert bar table!

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!
