    Cool photo! Gorgeous scenery. Is the cauldron just for Halloween or are you actually boiling something in there?

    Actually it wasn’t for Halloween at all! P was boiling water to, ahem, de-fur dinner–just happened to be on Halloween.

    Is this something like the “cardara” – I think I remember as a child??
    Mom used to use a similar container to boil a mixture to wash clothes or something like that…………………

    Sei badolatese DOC 😀 We use it just for when we need a whole bunch of hot water outdoors…usually for removing feathers/fur.

  4. Hope you had a great Halloween and All Saints Day, Michelle. Thanks for the link.

    You too 🙂
