My German Shepherd reminds me every other day that he is a long hair dog that seriously sheds. I could do without all those swirly dust bunnies and fur balls that float all across our hard wood floors until I chase them down with the broom.  On a positive note, my house is cleaner than it used to be, every other day.

The convenient design of the Skin and Bone Dust Pan by Yu Ching Chiang awaits patiently, situated perfectly flush to the corner. No closet necessary, this tool is best left out with its graceful wooden handles, sharp triangular base, two tone bristles. The designer describes his intent, “Corners in a space have always been un-noticed, dirty and dark…would like to enrich the corner’s character through ‘Skin and Bone’.” Like a seasoned dancer, the tray and broom make cleaning your floors a chore to enjoy. I just might sweep with a glass of wine in one hand next time.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
