ABC Wednesday - Letter O

My word today for ABC Wednesday is ORNATE.

Aren't these beautiful examples of ORNATE lettering.  How often do we see this in use today.  Maybe on an elegant wedding invitation.

My husband and I are both members of our local Woodworking Guild, this is an example of ORNATE Intarsia created by David Roth from our guild.  He uses lots of differnt colors of wood to achieve this fabulous results.



His inspiration was this drawing by Leonardo da Vinci.

This is an exciting form of art that little is heard about. Nice to see the creative twists and turns of these ornate designs! I totally share your love of sparkles. :)

Just the head-dress!!! Who would have thought of it, and who would ever have guessed what it WAS?

Simply lovely. And you're wood-workers! My daddy was a skilled carpenter/builder/carver and the scent of sawdust is one of the best there is.
