Handcrafted. Goose woodcarving

Yesssss.

That’s what I said when I walked through the door tonight and spotted this little tile on the table.

Goose is so far one of may favourites because of the textures and those feet! We really need to start thinking on how to get these oak tiles displayed to show them off to their best…so if you have any ideas please let me know.

And if you can think of any creatures who would look good in these little worlds then I will pass on your ideas to Bee.

Handcrafted. Just Harvest Mouse woodcarving by Bee

 

It’s Monday. Bee didn’t do any carving at the weekend because you know weekend stuff. Today is a different story. Just Harvest Mouse has arrived to join the other two hand carved oak tiles. I don’t think the photo does this one justice at all as there is so much going on and I don’t know if the camera has picked up his tiny legs that are hanging on to the  stalks. What do you think?IMG_20171030_191436596IMG_20171030_191420179

Handcrafted. A Little Whale woodcarving

Bee has been busy today. I got home from work and he shows me this little gem. A Little Whale is a woodcarving on re-purposed oak. This was essentially a piece an old sideboard that we found thrown out at the back of our old house. Who would thrown such beautiful wood out?

I did mention it was like a magnificent tile so fingers crossed we will get a series.

Handmade: woodcarving, Woodland Walk

 

So here are some pictures of the woodcarving Bee has recently completed. I have been wanting to get something like this down for three years and I am in love with it. As I type this now I’m uploading a short video on to my YouTube channel so you can take the walk. I’ll attach it to this post once it is up.

You can go on a walk from the church, across the field and glance at the birds flying by. Then when you hop over the style or the wall and make your way to the edge of the treeline you might see foxes, badgers and even rabbits in the field. The when you wander across to the next field if you are very lucky you might just see a hare. But don’t forget to check the pond in case there is a toad nearby. Shhhh, stay quiet at the far edge of the field is a stag and his does.

Can you tell how much I love this.

Oh and I do stumble over the washing basket near the beginning of the video so please ignore that!

Blog. Pencilling and pencilling and pencilling.

Hello!

I am missing this little home of blogginess but I am working really hard at the moment on some poems and I have entered my first competitions ever. Even if nothing ever comes of them, they have got me writing and listening and thinking more. And I’m discovering some amazing poets. 🙂

My pencil is squirrelling away like the Sorcerers Apprentice.

I do have  – and I will make sure I get this up soon – a video and some pictures of a new woodcarving that Bee did a short time ago. I have been asking for this for three years but what is time when you get a result like we now have over the fireplace.
