When life gives you failed perc tests, stain berry baskets

So the dirt at the new house failed the perc test. Failed it miserably. So unless we want to shell out nearly $25k to put in a new septic system with special pumps and whatnot, we can't add the fourth bedroom. And we don't want to shell out the $25k. So it's back to the drawing board on the house plans...

In the meantime, I'm making some berry baskets for Christmas. I'm going with two general color themes in both shops this year: cardinal red, white, and silver, and moss green, gold, and ivory. Yesterday and today I was staining lots of clothespins, wood tags, jute twine, and berry baskets in the moss green and cardinal red colors. I can almost smell the pine cones and hear the jingle bells...
