ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " N "


ABC Wednesday brings us to the letter " N ".
" N " is for Nap Time. Many a good book has been interupted by a warm sunny Nap time.
This sculpture was one of many at the High Hand Nursery.
The complex also has a forging studio where the sculptures are made. You could probably buy the Napping boy for about $2000.00.
Be sure to see what others are posting for the letter " N " at Mrs Nesbitts link which you can find on my sidebar.
Click on the picture to enlarge it and see the fine craftmanship.

Oh, I really identify with this. Give me a good book and a chair by the window on a sunny day and I am often nodding off to dreamland. What a beautiful sculpture this is!

This is such a funny picture...great idea!!!

Alan said...

The second nap I've seen this week. A lot of smart people out there - naps are great. :)

Why is it when we are young they make us take naps and we don't want to - then we get older and would love a nap and our employers won't let us?!?!?!

Faye Pekas said...

Hes a little out of my price range but very nice.

I don't know where you and Kate come up with so many beautiful sculptures. We have nothing to compare in our area.
