Just Pictures

It’s been a busy week here and I’ve been very tired.  The grandkids left for their parents house on Wednesday and it’s been strangely quiet around here.  I’ve spent most of my extra time in the workshop and have done almost no writing so today it’s just pictures.  If I can get it together this week, I hope to do some real writing but no promises.

Until I get into the keyboard again here are a few more pictures of Paris and a couple of work I have in progress.

Here’s the best view we got of the Mona Lisa at le Louvre:

If you hold your camera up high enough you can get the shot.

Here’s the most common view if you’re just standing and being polite:

Lots of heads and hair in front of the painting.

 

I’ve decided to start grandpa’s Christmas workshop this month in hopes I’ll finish the gifts BEFORE Christmas 2012.  Here are a couple of things I am working on:

Sheep for holding knitting needles and wool. Still needs a backbone.

 

And finally here is a little project related to Prostate Cancer.  A few weeks ago a friend in prostate cancer forum sent me two US postage prostate awareness stamps.  I decided to make frames for them.  I got this design from a friend on a scroll saw forum (attribute TBA when I get permission to use his name).  I cut the piece out of walnut because the prostate is about the size and shape of a walnut.  Here is the rough cut out:

Well that is it for tonight.  Peace to you and yours.
