Chickadee balancing act
A cool spring morning, time for breakfast. This chickadee is probably wondering what all the fruit is on the platform.
Barkley the Bulldog bench dog
Something new in the workshop today, a new bench dog. This little guy showed up from the scrap wood pile. A couple layers of 3/4 inch plywood and a few nails. Would look fun just about any place, outdoors in the garden or on the desk as a paper weight. We’ve named him Barkley. 🙂
Meanwhile in Nova Scotia :)
Captured this moment on the doorstep this afternoon, just on our way out for a snowshoe walk. An ermine found itself a meal of squirrel. This is a couple times I have seen this ermine near the house. It probably explains why we have not seen any mice this winter. Which is ok by me.
Ermine or Weasel or Stoat
Whatever you want to call them, whether its an ermine, a stoat or a weasel, these little rodents are effective hunters. They will hunt mice, birds, fish, squirrels and pretty much anything its size or smaller.
-28ºC and chickadees brave the cold
Chickadees need lots of fuel to keep themselves warm during cold weather like today. A few more pictures…
2016 comes to a close
A lot has happened in 2016, some good, some bad. The best investment we made this year was a bird feeder in the spring. The spring brought many types of birds and our favorite among them is the chickadee.

Soon be turkey day in the USA
I got a call..no, not a turkey call… from a customer in New Jersey. Seems she just loves these turkey yard art projects but cannot get anyone to make them for her. She wanted to know if I could do them.
With some scrap log bits, there must be something that can be made from it.
3D Momma and Baby Polar Bears
We will have a set of plans available in the online store for this project soon. This 5ft tall polar bear momma and 3ft tall baby bear are so cute! Easy to put together and take apart, stores flat too.
