The perfect choice for a Climber!!

Asja said...

He's adorable! I love his little hat and yellow lederhosen.

Victoria said...

So cute! I adore his sweet expression! Reminds me of when I visited the Alps in Germany as a teenager. I remember men walking around at the base of the mountains dressed in their lederhosen, and carrying their walking sticks all covered with medals of where they had been. Thanks for a nice trip down memory lane!

Amy C said...

hey Victoria, that's so funny, I lived in Germany when I was little and my Dad got himself one of those walking sticks, and we used to buy him the stocknagel - (medals) whenever we went somewhere new!
This is where all the inspiration came from for this character, I am glad it gave you a trip down memory lane too!
