Wood Craftsman's works and Rice Paddy with Blue Heron;

*Exhibition of Wood Crafts*
In the  middle of June, my friend taught me about the Exhibition of Wood Crafts held at the gallery close to her house. Lovely puzzle for kids and impressed by the lots of wooden artistic works.
Many works of cat's design were lovely.

*First works were Puzzles for kids *
The cat on the left has a washing board ;-)
My craft work lover husband liked this cat planing (hope the right word)

*Rice  Paddy and   a Blue Heron*
Pictures of rice paddies from this year. First one, I tried panoramic.  Appreciated if you enlarge the picture.  My husband said that the branches of tree is interesting ;-) 

The brown field; you can see straw after mowed wheat.

Luckily, I could take a video Blue Heron enjoying late lunch. 
Thank you very much for stopping by ;
I always appreciate your sweet comments;

Linking this post to these pages and Thanks to all the link hosts;


  1. Wow, what a great exhibition! I enjoyed those wonderful wood works. It’s so amazing that the artists can create such lively figurines with woods! I adore the kitties, especially the one on a big fish :-)
    I love the panoramic photo of the rice paddies. Love the composition with those branches! And I enjoyed watching Blue Heron having lunch :-) Such peaceful and relaxing sceneries!
    My family in Japan said rainy season would be over around their area in a week. I’m guessing your area will enter hot summer soon. Please stay cool! Have a happy new week and new month!

  2. Miyako - a wonderful exhibition of wood crafts. Someone is a keen observer of cat behavior to be able to carve cats doing so many different activities. I like the cat riding the fish kite! Is the blue heron eating fish? Is it normal for fish to be in a rice paddy? Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  3. The wood items are very interesting. Have a nice week


  4. My thanks Miyako for persevering with linking up! It seems that the Linky list in general has recovered from its problems of last week - yay!
    Am amazed how the cat inspired so many. Love the little cat riding the big fish (don't know the right word either, smile!) Still mindboggling to me how rice grows in water! It must have made your day to discover the heron having its meal there! Many thanks for sharing these interesting events going on in your part of the world with All Seasons! Have a beautiful summer week:)

  5. How nice to see the blue heron! I like seeing the rice paddies and homes in the background. It lets me see into your part of the world. Love the pretty wood creations, especially the puzzles! Enjoy our week sweet friend! Hugs, Diane

  6. Dearest Miyako,
    Oh, your husband's choice is also by far my favorite!
    The Blue heron eating late lunch is a good video.
    Now I'm like you dearest friend; no more Parents as my Dad went to heaven on Sunday...

  7. I am a cat lady so these cat carvings are right up my alley.

    Worth a Thousand Words

  8. I enjoyed your photos of the talented woodworking creations. Amazing!

  9. Hi my dear Miyako,
    These wood crafters are very skilful and they have plenty of imagination! Every child would be happy to get such a colourful puzzle. The big cat is so wonderful. It is always a joy to see your landscapes. Rice paddies in the scenery bring zen, I feel so. Many greetings from Finland.

  10. Das sind wirkliche hervorragende Holz Kunstwerke mit sehr viel Charm.

  11. Thank you for sharing photos of the exhibition. Children would love those jigsaws and unique ornaments. Wonderful view of the fields and the video of the blue beautiful heron walking carefully through the rice fields looking for something to eat in the water is an interesting sight.

  12. Those wood crafters are quite talented. As a primary school teacher I really like those puzzles. I have used them a lot through the years. Thank you, Miyako, for linking up.

  13. The wooden toys are beautifully made. I like giving toys made from real materials like wood or wool or cotton, and not from plastic. My grandchildren would enjoy the puzzles.
    Herons are such fascinating birds to watch.
    Have a good weekend, Miyako.

  14. The cat carvings are very sweet.
    Lovely blue heron.

  15. Hello Miyako, I love all the cute wooden toys and fun puzzles. The cat on the fish is adorable. Love the heron photos and video. Great post. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend! PS, thanks so much for leaving me a comment.
