The Changing Seasons – July 2018

  It´s time again for the wonderful challenge The Changing Seasons hosted by my dear friend Su from Zimmerbitch. Although Germany didn´t even make it into the final sixteen of this year´s World Championship (having won it last time definitely added to the shame), people still had fun watching or playing football themselves.

More Owls… ´cause there can never be enough!

Here comes another owl of mine, though this time it´s neither drawn or painted, but made of clay! It´s a candle holder for tealights and I made it last winter ´cause you need every bit of light you can get, when it´s getting dark … Hope you like it!:)
