Saturday Snapshot: Fairy Tale Walking Stick


Sticking with the fairy tale theme, here is a photo of my old man in a stick. This walking stick was carved by a gentleman in Utah. A shimmering ribbon of poetry is inscribed and wraps around the stick all the way to the bottom. This old man usually gets quite a few compliments when I take him out for walks on the trails!

  1. What a fascinating walking stick! Just like the totems, stories to tell. But here you have poetry too. Great icon to go with your fairytale theme. Thanks for sharing! And... good to see on your sidebar what you're currently reading. ;) Thanks for the mention on Twitter too.

  5. That is absolutely lovely. It would be really special to go walking in the woods with that, but perhaps it's too nice to use. My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/GVIbC

    1. It looks beautiful but is a pretty hardy piece so I do take it out.

  6. Maybe might dad would be finally tempted to use a walking stick if I could find a specially hand-crafted one like this :-)

    1. I have not named him, which is odd because I name everything! I should.
