Two New Whirligigs
We are very excited to announce Two New Whirligigs, one is another one of our 4 legged friends, Black or Chocolate Labs 🙂 The other is for you BlueJay fans out there, a larger version of our BlueJay Whirligig. Both as a result of requests from Whirligig Lovers out there, Thanks Vanessa and Mary 🙂
|Black or Chocolate Labs
16.5″ Long with 21″ wingspan
Each Whirligig body is made from select whitewood, the wings from solid whitewood, and hand painted with a base of exterior prime coat and Quality top coat paints, then coated with a clear acrylic latex.
Every Whirligig comes with a PVC yard stake that will resist rot and damage from weed trimmers.
Bob is the WhirligigGuy and Selene (his much better half) helps with priming and bouncing ideas 😉 . Each Whirligig is made in our Jacksonville Westside backyard where the WhirligigGuy works every evening and weekend on our Whirligigs.
Whirligigs have been around for 100’s of years and were common in the 1800 and 1900’s. Sadly, as with other forms of Folk Art, they are not as common today. We love Whirligigs and are trying to keep this old Folk Art alive right here in Northeast Florida, for everyone to enjoy. Whirligigs are a great addition to Yards and Gardens for a little touch of something special! Whirligigs also make great gifts for Christmas, new House Owners and… just because 😉
