This blog shows the folkart I make, my reproduction furniture and other projects. My studio/shop is in my backyard. It's a couple of miles off the main road in West Prince County, Prince Edward Island, Canada. When you come to visit make sure you see – the "Olde Times" Garden House Museum; Grandma's Attic; the Furniture Box; Grampa's Loft (antiques, old doors, etc. in my Dad’s old barn loft); and my World's Largest Egg Beater, certified by Guinness World Records.

Crows and Gulls

     Well it has been a bird week!  I made crows and gulls.  
     For the base of the crows I used some of my firewood from my basement.
     I did two types of gulls - Lady Slipper Gulls and Tignish Hush Puppy Gulls.  
     On the Lady Slipper Gulls before the green part of the flower I used a piece of leather so that it would not break off.  The bodies are carved from wood.
     This is the first time I made rubber boots on a seagull.  A fishing community not far from me calls these rubber boots, Tignish Hush Puppies - so I call these gulls "Tignish Hush Puppy Gulls".
