These are some pics from our local farmers market and found a couple of interesting items that i thought you guys would enjoy .
I would like to see you guys posting more like this from your market ,I find them so interesting .

A Viking ship that a fellow of Icelandic heritage made .
Took two hundred and forty hours and is a beauty ,I took a look at this a while ago and just had to go back and take some pictures .
Its so detailed and well made and the fellow said he may be able to get some pictures of the inside of the hull ,I hope .

These are some horse sculptures made from tree roots and some benches made by the same fellow who I did not have a chance to meet .
Also a real cool cart ,just had to include it even so its not wood .

Sorry forgot to mention the Icelandic rice pudding ,sampled them all about eight flavour and settled on the almond flavour .
Then it was of to the sausage stand for BRATWURST which is the main reason we go, such a treat .

madts had to like the ship!
I liked it too and the horse reminded me of this one by jeffro.
Sounds like a great day, especially with good bratwurst.
