Another variation on a theme. Had this bit of cedar fence post scrap wood. Two colours, knotty and not nice.
Walt disney was in my mind so I decided to dance with Minnie Mouse. To confuse the issue I adorned the shoe with some copper shoe tacks, as always a bit of experimentation. Finished with French polish. Enjoy!

This shoe will be active at Christmas as I intend to fill it with candy kisses! Eat your hearts out!

Roman my friend, I must say that you can do more with a scrap of cast off wood than anyone I know.
...... and I know a whole bunch of people. :-)

Still getting a kick out of your work.
