Leap year - doves

In January 2015 there was a storm in our area and a huge part of a Cedar of Lebanon tree came crashing down, you may recall me talking about it on this blog.  At that time I showed you a dove that was made out of the wood and some of you were were eager to buy them once they were ready for sale.   Well as you can see they are now available and all proceeds will go towards St. Marks Church Ampfield, Hampshire.

From the tip of his nose to the end of his tail he is 3 1/2 inches wide and 2 1/2 inches tall. Each dove comes with a card stating its authenticity.   The wood is very aromatic especially as it is newly cut.

This Cedar of Lebanon tree stands outside the church where Revd Awdry who wrote the Thomas the Tank Engine book was baptised, he was born in the village and lived in the vicarage.  He knew the church and the tree well as his father was Vicar of the parish, if you want to read about him look here.

The doves are selling for 11.50 US dollars and postage 4.60 US dollars.  Please e.mail me at if you are interested in buying one.

These two doves were playing on a church roof two weeks ago.
