Extra cuttings from my wood become seasonal miniatures. Nothing is wasted! As the decades move on, I feel like a restless, older frog ..eager to try more comfortable lily pads ....and easier ways to express my thoughts! For now though, I'm still "kneedeep" in wood with color Solid wooden eggs are my latest venture to give my interpretation of the seasons, holidays, and life. Each egg is unique and can be personalized. I'm looking forward to being "home" at Etsy.com ! Please come visit my shop and see my light simple scenes of light,simple thoughts in wood ...with color. .
