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!
