wooden loveliness….September 10, 2009
At the last Steiner Bazaar I went to there was such a beautiful selection of wooden pieces to see. I bought this house / bird from Manny who is the lovely man who made all the playstands for our kinder. And then I sat next to and chatted with John Elliott who makes these exquisite ‘moon boats’ – I was rocked when he sold the 2 he had to other people on the day. But the lovely bit was that he custom made one for me and I found it in the letterbox just when I needed a ‘special something’… Boats seem to be a recurring motif for me this year – with my immigrant parents etc… but it also reminds me of a wild voyage like going to ‘where the wild things are’….
