Comments about Product: I purchased the rabbit doorstop and am very pleased. It is exactly how it was depicted and works extremely well. I use it on a hardwood floors and the felt dots protect the floor.
Comments about Product: I'm a frog lover and this guy is great! He's very cute and is not one of those silly looking caricature type frogs. Does his job of holding the door open well and looks good doing it.
Comments about Product: This is the cutest thing. It's a good weighted metal (solid). The only thing that it's a little on the small side. It works great. It's just that we have a heavy pile carpet in the room, and it sort of gets lost in it. I don't want to discourage anyone from buying it though. It's awfully sweet and would be perfect on hardwood floors. It certainly works fine as a doorstop too - even on our carpet. The other thing about the size is that you can't really see it well, unless you bend down to look at it. I'd prefer it to be a little bigger, so it would show up more. Thanks.

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!
