Wooden you like these gifts?

This carving was done by my oldest brother and presented to the bride and groom as their wedding gift. He is quite the talented individual and has asked the couple if he can borrow the carving for a competition that he is keen to participate in. He spent a gazillion number of hours working on this duck.
Another handmade gift for the fortunate couple! My nephew made this rack using no nails or screws. Holding it together are pegs that are easy to remove and disassemble. Quite clever!

I have dropped mega hints for one just like it. :o)
Have a nice day!

Wow, what a beautiful duck, the feathers look so real, and I sure do hope you get a quilt rack too, you just gotta share the talent around the family.

The duck looks so real. Even after I read that it was wood, I had to go back and it STILL looks real! You ahve a very talented family. The rack is wonderful. Add the gorgeous quilt and shams in the mix and the bride and groom really were blessed!!!

What treasures. They are wonderfully made.

These are NOT the kind of gifts that you'd find in a box 20 years from now and wonder, "what were they thinking??"! Timeless, graceful, beautiful, and made from the heart.

Let us know if you find any hints that work.

The duck is really incredible, I thought it looked real as well. Beautifully done, I bet it will win a ribbon.
I hope you get one of those quilt racks too, very nice. What a talented family.

I love that duck. It looks so real. I have several in my sons old room, but nothing that even comes close to the beauty of that one.

That rack is lovely too!
