I had the opportunity to partner with Uncommon Goods, a unique company, featuring unusual items, many that are not seen elsewhere . Half of what they sell is made by hand and most of their products are made here in the USA :)
The excitement started building the minute the box arrived....
.,..and out came of of the thickest, plushest door mats I have ever seen, the Guard Cat doormat. Even Pumpkin was impressed! (the mat reads: I guard this house - in French) Luckily I had the cat inspector on hand:
The mat looks super snazzy at our front door! Seriously, observe the thickness!
The package arrived just in time, as we were readying the house for a pizza party this past weekend. A party which provided the perfect opportunity to test another Uncommon Goods product- a steel pizza cutter..
MB's brothers and their families were both in town so we ended up making 16 12-inch pies (they need to be that size to fit in our outdoor pizza oven). Often when you have a pie loaded with lots of toppings and you try to cut it with a regular pizza cutter - the toppings get pulled off into a big blob as you cut...
This type of steel pizza cutter is specially designed to sidestep that problem. sidenote: I was thrilled to discover that many of the products at Uncommon Goods, such as this one, are made from recycled products, in this case, recycled steel. It was handmade by a blacksmith in Vermont.
From the minute our guests stepped on our welcoming new door mat, to the well-cut pizza dinner, I'd say the party was a big success!
