Foo Dogs – Protectors of your Sanctuary

Sprout home always carries interesting items and my visit to their site today turned up yet another great item.

Chinese and other Asian inspirations didn’t make it into my collection (I just didn’t find anything) but Foo (fu) dogs might just be a perfect accent. Foo dogs are highly symbolic in Asian cultures and Buddhist religions. Fu means happiness – so they are happy dogs and their purpose is to protect sacred places and ensure tranquility.

These little guys are charming at $60 a piece and in such pretty colors I think they could be a fitting protector of your garden.

Garden Tandoor; the Next Trend in Outdoor Cooking?

by ATouchOfWhimsy I have some married friends who are Italian (the wife) and Indian (the husband)  — we were chatting about family food and theirs is pretty hard core.  My friend was describing her mother in-laws process for roasting spices to use in her curries and I was fascinated by the thought.   They are…
