Family Pride

I have an overwhelming urge to share some love, and be a bit boastful of my family. My Dad....the kids call him Papa, gives the best "strawberry jam' hugs, listens, and loves with his whole heart, and shuffles his feet in modesty in the sawdust. So Im going to boast on him since I think he deserves it.  After much prodding and convincing....he has his own etsy shop, BlockheadProduction. He makes the most beautiful wood turn bowls and vessels! I'm just in awe of his talent, they evoke emotion, are tactile, gloriously designed. Ok Papa are you blushing yet? It's all true, and I think his shop deserves our love. Just for grins and to share some love, please leave your comments here, or convo Papa at his shop and let him know what you like about it! Making him blush is one of my favorite pastimes :)

Beautiful work you should be proud of him. My father had carves and I know how proud I am of him. :) I love the Spalted Broadleaf Maple Vase.

And thanks for the lovely encouraging comment you left on my blog. It warms my heart to know that somewhere in cyberspace someone is telling me to calm down :)
