The Be Creative prompt for today was grain, first thought of the grains we eat, then a grain of sand then the grain in wood which evoked memories of my dad who was a cabinet maker by trade. I was fascinated when he could name a piece of wood by its grain and loved watching him french polish an item he had made to enhance the richness of the wood.

He made me a love spoon many years ago....


.....sadly I dropped it when dusting and chipped it but I love it and it is so good to have something that he made!
