Ornaments for Charity

Every year our guild donates Christmas ornaments to an organization that sells them and gives the money to the poor.
This is a batch I made today out of some old walnut and spray lacquer.

I figure it can’t hurt to earn some good points “upstairs” to off-set some of my youthful indiscretions…lol

Thanks for looking and have a nice day.
