O is for... Odd Otto's Ox eye daisies

Dear Uncle OTTO, he looked quite normal when he was found under a dock leaf many years ago. Who would have thought he'd turn out somewhat, well, eccentric, to put it nicely ;-)

I used a photo of OX eye daisies for the background, gave ODD OTTO a pair of wings and a crown, trimmed the bottom with a bit of antique French metallic braid and cut out vintage images of OX eye daisy bells for a kind of tassel trim.

I am fond of Uncle OTTO, a bit of ODDness is quite charming really.

Off to France tonight, at long last. Toodlepip xxx
