By the way, this is my grandfather. My nephew looks exactly like him. The picture is from the mid to late 20s. He is also the gentleman in the uniform in an earlier family block from this year. I have some really cool pictures of him as a baby and toddler in the requisite boy dress.
The 3" windmill is from an Aunt Martha transfer that I shrank. I added the tank and fence. When I was growing up, the neighbors had a tank like this that we used to catch tadpoles from. Life was so much simpler then.
I have had a lot of trouble getting the red marks from the transfer pencil to go away, but I will keep trying.
I used a different color green thread to attach the leaves with the intention of the change to look like veins, but it doesn't work very well. I will probably rethink this.
