Up

A friend of mine, Wendy, is turning her back yard into a mini Hobbiton. There's already a Hobbit Hole, Mirkwood, and other parts. Every Shire worth its Hobbits has a pottery seller, so this is the stand for "Suz's Middle Earthenware". It's just roof over a child-size picnic table, but does the part nicely. Assembling the picnic table was rather too mundane to show here. My first attempt at installing cedar shingles went well, I think. The final painting and the sign (to come) is all Wendy's work.
