Peonies and my new favorite clay

[insert_php] previous_post('« « %', 'Older Post', ''); [/insert_php] | [insert_php] next_post('% » »', 'Newer Post', ''); [/insert_php]   Hi, there!

Today, I'm going to show a bit of the new project I've been ever so slowly working on....a tea room. This building is…
