Mountain Laurel grows wild all over the mountain and is in bloom. It is absolutely specular this year! The first and second picture I took today while on a hike of the Mountain Laurel, very beautiful!
Purple Rhododendrons are also in full bloom! I also took the Rhododendron pictures in our garden today.
Purple Rhododendron are beautiful but so are the pink! Check out the next few pictures of the Pink Rhododendron blooms!
can you spot the tiny ants and insect on the blooms?
So which do you like the best, the Mountain Laurel or the Rhododendrons?
Enjoy your evening!

I spent the last few days this week at Isle of Palm with my friends, together there were six of us. We had a big house with a pool that was one block off the beach. This house was huge and had 6 master suites.

We all enjoy eating oysters, so we ate oysters each night at different restaurants, Pearlz, Boathouse, etc. The above picture is Capers Blade oysters, these are elongated and are delicious.
I love all oysters but my favorite are Blue Tips, all with a little lemon, sauce and horseradish!
Do you like oysters? What is your favorite?

Many of you might think that all I make is cutting boards, serving boards, cheese boards, etc. but I also make hand mirrors too! I made 9 hand mirrors this week for customers, pictured above is a right hand and a left hand mirror made from Walnut. Walnut is by far the most popular wood for hand mirrors.
After sanding smooth, I then finish the hand mirrors with 4 coats of a hard, low gloss poly. The poly helps bring out the grain and protects the surface.

Several months ago I create a new logo. Even though I was not quite happy with it I posted it in the header on my web site. It just wasn’t as clean as I wanted so I have been spending a lot of time cleaning it up. I think I have finally finished it!
After getting the logo finished I decided to create oval labels that I can use. This label will be 3 inches long and 2 inch wide. What do you think about my updated logo and the oval labels?
I hope everyone has a Wonderful Easter Weekend!
