It must be the gift buying season

This blog post is a refection of the fact that some folk are into gift buying at the moment. Only a few weeks ago I delivered some leafspoons, leaf pate knives, leaf letter openers and ladles to Maleny Additions. However I was asked could I bring in more stock as they had all but sold out. So it was a matter of getting down into the garage-studio and getting into production.

And as you can see from the photos below a stash of stuff was produced, tagged (courtesy of Fiona) and delivered to the shop.

Whilst the leaf spoons, leaf pate knives and leaf letter openers are not the greatest pieces of hammered metal art folk seem to like them because they are different and hand made.
