Comments about Product: This wreath arrived packaged perfectly. I have it hanging between my front door and storm door. It looks real. You'd never know that it is artificial. I have purchased many wreaths and have never had one so beautiful. I will only purchase wreaths from you from now on.
Comments about Product: I just put this beautiful wreath up for the second year and it looks
brand new. I kept it in the original box under the bed. I hang it outside
in Austin so our weather is pretty mild over the fall. I have had many
compliments and would recommend this,it is a nice size and is very full. I compared it to others for double the price-its a great buy!
Comments about Product: Love this wreath! Just wish it was a tad larger... Must use in a covered doorway, so I have indoor. We really needed something larger for our front door but I wouldn't dare return, too gorgeous.
Comments about Product: I ORDERED TWO WREATHS TO HANG OUTSIDE ON MY DOUBLE FRONT DOOR. THEY ARRIVED WITHIN A WEEK OR SO AND WERE PACKED ADEQUATELY. THE BOX CONTAINED LOTS OF SHEDDING AND THEY HAD A STRONG ODOR OF PERHAPS EUCALYPTUS ALTHOUGH IT ACTUALLY SMELLED STRONGER. HAD I KNOWN THIS I WOULD HAVE OPENED THEM OUTSIDE. NEEDLESS TO SAY I HAD TO TAKE THEM OUTSIDE TO SHAKE THE SHEDDING PARTICLES FROM THEM. MY HUSBAND IS ASTHMATIC AND IT WAS TOO LATE FOR HIM. HE HAD AN ASTHMA ATTACK JUST FROM BEING IN THE SAME ROOM WHERE I OPENED THEM. ALSO, I SPRAYED KRYLON ON THEM TO PREVENT FADING. HOWEVER, THEY DID TURN A BIT DARKER FROM THE KRYLON. OVERALL, THEY ARE VERY FULL AND WELL-MADE AND BEAUTIFUL! IN MY OPINION THEY ARE ABOUT $10 OVERPRICED!
Comments about Product: This wreath is the most beautiful I have ever seen. It honestly took my breath away when I took it out of the box. It almost looks too nice for our entryway!! It does say not to hang it where there is high humidity or in direct sunlight. If I could give it 10 stars I would. Ordered it on 9/28 and rec'd it on 10/11-couldn't be more happy with it.
Comments about Product: The picture on the web site doesn't do this wreath justice. When I opened the box, I was very pleasantly surprised at how gorgeous this wreath is. The colors are bright and it is fuller than it shows in the picture. Fall has always been my favorite time of year and a beautiful fall wreath on my front door starts off the season right. You will love this wreath!
Comments about Product: This is a great decoration on my front door during the Fall season. It holds up well in the wind that blows through our neighborhood and is a colorful addition to the front of our house. I enjoy it a lot!

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!
