I have several ornaments to give away. Far Guy mailed off the ornaments to friends and family last week..we still have a few more to hand deliver.
I “forgot” to make one for Chaucer..Noah noticed..and said “Grandma where is Chaucer's Ornament?” I was only doing ornaments for the dogs..but who can resist a gentle reminder from a young man who has a cat that he dearly loves. He is also very astute..he said “You didn’t really forget did you Grandma?” I had to come clean and replied “No, I didn’t forget..but I will make one for Chaucer and send it soon.” Chaucer will have mail by the end of the week.
Far Guy and I had a good time carving the ornaments this year. Far Guy carved one a day for many days. We gave away 60 to family members and friends.
These are the three that I am giving away. I carved these. They are carved from Cottonwood bark that was collected either in the Hawley area (Thanks Buffalo gal and her best friend) or from the Fisher area (Thanks Jen, Noah and Adam). Cottonwood bark is very thick, and is perfect for carving tiny little churches. These still need some crosses and names wood burned into the bottom..perhaps yours!
Yesterday, I asked a question..you can always go back and answer that question to enter.
I will draw the lucky winners tonight about 10PM..and get them in the mail soon!
Answer today’s question to be entered again: How cold was it at your house this morning? It was –18 degrees F here or –28C. Just another morning in paradise:)
