A Lesson In Woodcarving
I shot down to the post office this morning. On my way home, I stopped at the antique store down the street. It can be dangerous having antique stores 1 mile from your home, know what I mean? It's a group shop and pop in to see discover.
Today, this sweet wood carving.
When I got up to the counter the woman turned her over and said, "Oh she's from Oberammergau."
I said, "I saw that but I don't know Oberammergau."
She told me, it is a village in Germany (Bavaria) that is known for it's wood carving. She'd actually visited there.
So, now I now where this sweet little lady is from.
The funny thing is, she seems to have on wooden shoes, as if she is Dutch.
She looks to have been painted, but I think it makes her lovely carvings stand out even more.
The things you learn on a trip to the post office.
Have a great day.
Ciao for now,
