Norm’s Thursday Doors : 09 June 2016

My doors this week come from two different countries, Austria and Greece.   They are both old, ornate and have seen many people pass through them over the years.     Check out some more doors over at Norm’s Thursday Doors.

Knitting for Miniatures

I was in a shop near Kenmare, in County Kerry this week, and saw this beautiful hand crafted piece of knitting in a frame, complete with little needles and tiny balls of wool – the frame is only about ten or twelve inches high, so this little piece must have been made by teeny tiny hands, maybe even by the fairies!   Wouldn’t it be the perfect present for a keen knitter?

Wood : Ailsa’s Travel Theme

Sometimes, we can’t see the wood for the trees, and get caught up in the small things in life when we should see the bigger picture.   These pictures show a little bit of both, so there is a bit of balance in my life!

These wooden sculptures are some of my most treasured carvings, which I bought many years ago, they are all hand carved from one piece of wood, by a very clever man, who used to live in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.  Each piece is an original, and they give great pleasure to look at and to hold.
