Fathers Day

Remembering my dad.....

one of my dad's folk art flags

I always believed he could make anything! And we made a couple of whirligigs not long before he died. He engineered them, I did the painting. Sadly I do not seem to have any photos....the following are found-object wooden birds from the beach.

He wouldn't have had the patience to watch the following film...but it is wonderful. And somehow reminds me of him. Be sure to watch it!



gone to the beach!


  1. Your father's woodwork is lovely. I did watch the video. I also looked up the oyster catcher and see that one species is extinct with a couple of others getting to that point. Hope you have a great week. Tammy

  2. Yay am finally able to reply... loved your dads artwork..
