Some Photos of Christmas Gifts


Since I know you've all been wondering....

This is what a Christmas Armadillo looks like.




The Badger Brothers! Belshazzar is on the left and Melkior is on the right. (Please note that we would not saddle human children with such names. Badger children are tough enough to handle the teasing they would get at school.)


A sgian dubh. This is not the specific one that I got for Tirithien, but it looks very much like it!







And the mysterious and beautiful Oaken Chalice of Rockwood.

What a fun Christams for you. The chalis is beautiful. Does he have a lathe that he turned that on? I hope you can talk him into doing the wood work in your future house some day.

I think Tirithien borrowed the lathe from someone else. My stepdad is really good at making furniture too, so between the two of them, we could have some really gorgeous furniture in our house!

*blinks*

Wait, I think we’re getting just slightly ahead of ourselves here… ;-)

D'OH! Too late! I heard that!!!

Cool stuff :)

Heard what? I did not hear no such thing. ;-)

Move along, folks, nothing to see here. Well, except a chalice. And a knife. And two badgers. And an armadillo.

That was from a lathe a friend of mine let me borrow for a while. :-)

I am a good hand when it comes to woodwork, so we'll have to see someday. :-)

Nice use of the dual negative, my kola. You heard, and you know it. :-p

I can see you... come out and play!
