Comments about Product: I love these ants! I bought 2 sets and I have them in my kitchen running up my kitchen wall. They are sooo cute. A little humor in the kitchen....Can't wait to have a few people over.
Comments about Product: I am going to use these metal ants as decoration for a picnic-themed party. They will add humor and a little bit of reality to the tablescape. I would have preferred a larger size but these are nice and the grouping of 6 can be seen easily.
Comments about Product: Very difficult to find anywhere to display them.
Flimsy and cheap looking and hard to hang on a wall. I ended up taping them with some shipping tape, but
then the wind blew them off. I had purchased ants from another place and these really looked cheap compared to the other ones.
Comments about Product: I got one set of these initially and soon went back for more. I love them! I put them crawling up the wall in my front hall entry. They are cute enough to not be too creepy but at the same time they are very different. Not for everyone, I'd guess, but for me a giant win.

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!
