I have fallen in love with carving flowers on my wooden spoon wooden dolls.
Nowadays, I carve the wooden spoon part of my wooden dolly spoons in the shape of a heart, to symbolize gathering and sharing love and kindness.
This Hearts and Flowers Sister is about 6 inches/15 cm tall and is a celebration of the river and the ocean and flowers and butterflies and dragonflies:.
To be honest, she’s also about dreaming of much much gentler weather than we are experiencing right now.
We have had a brutally long ferociously cold spell of winter, and I am so longing for Springtime, and for flowers to be in bloom
instead of blistering icy cold shattering winds!
I miss the ocean, and it’s so cold that I am not even going out to say hello to the river, even though we live close to it.
so I carved flowers as a love song to the flowers and waves for my longing to walk along the ocean’s shore:
It has been such a long time since the dragonflies danced in our neighbourhood
and of course, the butterflies are cozy in their cocoons, dreaming of springtime…
Seriously…. Springtime, I am longing for you!
I carved ‘Springtime’s Sister and the next blog post is all about her. LINK
