Saturday Wooden Critters


SATURDAY'S CRITTERS
by wooden designs.


Hard to believe Thanksgiving Day is only 5 days away!



Tomorrow is just a dream away.



This turkey is still on the fence about Thanksgiving.


So, have you ever heard about the clever Danish artist, Thomas Dambo known for hiding giant wooden sculptures in hopes to inspire nature lovers to explore the unknown depths of Copenhagen's forests? He has hidden six of these giant sculptures throughout six different municipalities in the area.  His sculptures are amazing as these photos show.

Below are some wooden sculptures so much closer to home.


Home is where your Gnome is.





There is a great lesson of Beauty and the Beast
that a thing must be loved before it is lovable.
Chesterton G. K.





In some neighborhood, live a couple of trolls
 perched on tree stumps 
that spend their days
 laughing hysterically or so I've been told. 



A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.
A happy face makes everything better.
Wouldn't you agree?


Is it a bird?


Dreams must be chased,
for if we wait for them to chase us
we will live a life of waiting.
Craig D. Lounsbrough



Since the livelihood of turkeys is crucial this time of year
here's a bit of turkey humor.




Lovely wooden little free library.
Feed the birds while feeding minds.


Not what we say about our blessings
but how we use them
is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
W.T.Purkiser


Thanks for stopping by you visits are special to me.
May all your Thanksgiving celebrations be
 joyful and filled with love and happiness.





Thankfulness always sees everything as a gift 
even though it might be wrapped in 
some rather unsavory wrapping paper, 
for the wrapping need not dictate the contents.

A really cute collection of photos. I like the one of the turkey sitting on the fence. That is a cute caption to go with your photo. Happy Thanksgiving to you.

Followed this one over from FB, I seldom check the blogs and need to return, to that routine. I am better at keeping my book blog but even then it gets away from me. However now that the weather is going into winter and we are not heading south again this year, I will do some blogging too.
The wooden statuary carvings are magnificent/ are those all near your home?

Those woodcarvings are wonderful! I'm going to show them to my son. He has an old stump in front of his house that he's been contemplating carving into something. He has been doing woodcarving for a couple of years now.

Interesting carvings. For the last few summers we've had a chain saw carving competition in our town along with the Logger Sports events. Each carver makes one item to leave in town for display. - Margy
