Friday's Free-4-All

I really love this guy...



He was a splurge a couple years ago, and I'm so glad 
I chose to bring him home.  He's bigger than this pic 
shows...about 20" tall.  And, the intricate carving is 
really so amazing.



Do you see why he's a fave?






and then, she {snapped}



He even has that "heirloom" quality, and thankfully, the
boys love him.  Here's hoping he stays in the family for
many, many generations.

I love carved wooden figurines like this and I am sure it will become an heirloom in your home Dina. Our Nativity set was bought in Bethlehem and all carved from Olive wood.

Barb Phillips said...

Wonderful detail in the piece. I have to agree with the others that mentioned your DOF, that really helps add to the beauty of the photo
