I was making a stick figure to hold a herb garden. My grandfathers name was Herb so I wanted to call it Herb’s Garden. Play on words and cute. I cut the piece for his head, set it down and went looking for parts to make a cap. When I went back for his head I could not find it anywhere! I got frustrated and tired of looking, went out to talk to my husband. In the stack of logs that happened to be beside him, I saw a log and knew that this was Herb. Grandpa would smile. :)

Hilarious. You think maybe your grandfather was looking down on you and had a hand in putting that log there? :-)

Funny piece, love the accidental find that fit just right at the right time, funny how that happens sometimes.

Herb it is. A great figure.

Good Luck in the contest.
