Carvings and a giveaway!

Bob's been busy doing some commissioned carvings for people, and has also done some for a craft fair. When I've posted his carvings here in the past, people have asked me to post some he is selling, so I decided this is the time. I have a selection of his carvings posted. No two are alike, and I hope you enjoy them.
Because it's the end of the year, the prices are marked down! The sale price is shown; there would be a shipping cost added.
If you are interested in purchasing them, just send me an e-mail (bobmarib@hotmail.com) and we can arrange it.
Make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom, because he is giving away one of the carvings to one of my readers!


Here are some "Light bulb heads". These ornaments are each 2 1/2 " tall and come in blue, green and red. Each face is different. They are $5 each or 3 for $12.


This Santa head comes with the display hook. I think he is kind of classy looking.

Here is a view that shows the way he is displayed better. He is 10" tall and his cost is $25.


This one is called "Skinny Santa". He is 7" tall and costs $20.


Isn't this a cheery St. Nick? His name is "Happy Santa" and he is 6 1/2" tall.


I love the way he looks with his hands in his pockets. He costs $25.


The picture of this guy doesn't do him justice. He is so cute!
His name is "Big Red".


He is nearly as wide as he is tall. He measures 5 1/4" tall by 3 3/4" wide!
His cost is $25.


How do you feel about pirates? This one has a lot of character!
He is 8 1/2" tall.

Here's a close-up so you can see his gold tooth and earring.
He costs $35.


This electrician has zapped himself! The brass nameplate says "Shocking". He is 9 1/4" tall and he costs $50.


Do you know any Firemen that would like an unique gift for Christmas? This is an old time Firefighter. You can see him looking up, probably at the top of a building, planning how he's going to fight this fire.

This shows a few details of his head and chest. He is 10".



I wanted you to see the cobblestone street he is standing on. His cost is $50.



Last, but not least is this old time St Nickolaus. He's got his knapsack thrown over his back and his staff to help him walk.
He is valued at $30 and is going to be given away to one of my readers.
All you have to do to win is leave a comment with a way for me to get in touch with you if you should win. For an extra entry, post about this giveaway on your blog and leave another comment telling me you did that.
We will draw a winner next Sunday evening and it will be announced here next Monday!

My computer has been acting up and I would have missed this post had Nancy not told me you were having a give-a-way. I didn't see a post about it. Thanks to Nancy or I would have totally missed seeing all of Bob's carvings. He is so gifted at carving and probably anything that has to do with wood for I have seen your bedroom furniture. Beautiful!
