Indoors or Outdoors This Weekend?

Will you spend the weekend indoors or outdoors? The writers and the cooks of Blogging Business Artisans entice you to do both in this week’s photo collage. When it’s hot and humid, curl up indoors in air-conditioned comfort against a couple of beautifully embroidered pillows and jot down Web passwords in a password book using a sleek Celtic pen. But if you’d rather have a back yard barbecue, you’ll find a place for your utensils on an engraved wooding cutting board. Protect your hands from the heat while you grill with an oven mitt. When everyone is seated on the patio, enjoy a slice of freshly baked apple pie, cooling on a crocheted watermelon potholder.

Click on the images below to view the products in more detail, or visit the links below the photo collage.
