  1. Hi, these look great!

    I am interested in trying to make a coconut hide for one of my pet snakes. I see these are done from raw coconuts, how long do they take to harden or is there something you can do to speed up the process?

    At first I was just thinking of cutting one in half and making a hole as a door, but after seeing these I am going to try and do something fancy.

  2. Hi Roma, This took me down memory lane. My parents had brought back beautiful ladles and a serving fork from their trip to the south in late sixties. A few years ago I got the serving fork here in my home which, accidentally got broken a few months ago. To make a long story short: I have been meaning to get another one like that and today through your post got the address of Vibrant nature. Now emailing a friend who is in Madras this year. Many thanks.
