For My Dad

Universe works in mysterious ways and I think this post will bring me and my family a lot of positive energy. My sister, Amikadeja, already posted about for our father and today is my turn.

My father was born in 1946. From what he told me about his childhood, I can say he was quite a rebel. He grew up with 7 brothers and he was the youngest one. I just want to add that his artistic/crafty skills never cease to amaze me.

This is a chair he made for someones 80th birthday. It's all made out of vine wood. I know how much time and effort he put into this and it's not the only one he made... There were many more like this one.


People wanted to have crucifixes from vine wood as well. Not a problem for my dad... =)


He doesn't cook or bake much, but he is always the one who makes potica for holidays. For those of you who don't know what potica is, let me clarify it for you: it's a traditional Slovenian sweet bread filled with nuts and raisins. My father participated in a 'best potica' contest a few years ago and he won an award. =) Oh yes, I should add that he bakes bread and it's the best bread in the world!


So, that was a little something about my father. Be strong, Dad!


Thanks for looking!

  22. What a talented man! If we lived close by I would have him make me a chair. I always appreciate someone who has a natural talent. His work is really beautiful. I also am a bread lover! I didn't get fat eating vegetables. Homemade bread is so much better than anything you can find. Your Father's crucifixes are beautiful and inspirational. God bless him. How is he doing? I hope much better. He is in my prayers. It's amazing how we look at our Father's differently when we're older. We can see them as a person and not a parent. A blessed man with much talent and beautiful children.
