Hand-Carved Wooden Bird


This Baltimore Oriole is one of many uniquely made wooden birds
by Grandad Focht 
All of his other hand-carved birds have been sold

To swing: move or cause to move back and forth or from side to side while suspended

Notice the rubber tire swing,
just in case the bird decides to move back and forth!!!


One of the most brilliantly colored songbirds in the east, flaming orange and black, sharing the heraldic colors of the coat of arms of 17th-century Lord Baltimore. Widespread east of the Great Plains, Baltimore Orioles are often very common in open woods and groves in summer. Their bag-shaped hanging nests, artfully woven of plant fibers, are familiar sights in the shade trees in towns. This bird was formerly considered to belong to the same species as the western Bullock's Oriole, under the combined name of Northern Oriole.

Messy Bun and Ponytail Crocheted Hat


It is made with a chunky acrylic yarn 
that is washable and dryable. 
This one is ivory/cream colored
but I will do my best to find the color that you choose. 
A stretchy, color appropriate, ponytail holder 
will be crocheted into the top row 
to hold your messy bun or ponytail in place. 
(if I can continue to find the yarn on sale. 
(I like to pass along the coupon discounts to my customers)
$30 if I cannot, 
plus postage. 

Please check the main page of this website
for head measurement directions.

Here are some button samples that I'll be glad to add
to the hat, just because. If you like one of them, and they are still available at the time of your order, it will be sewn onto the hat. It will also be washable/dryable. 

The pattern author requested that I credit her for the pattern:
