A Labor of Love. It’s How He Rolls

It is always so magical to come across a story that gives me goosebumps and stops me dead in my tracks. Today, I stumbled across this article in the International Business Times (random reading for me!) and boy oh boy, was I inspired and enthralled! So, of course, I thought I would share with you all of you.

Momir Bojic, a 71 year old Bosnian pensioner, created a – get this – WOODEN Volkswagen out of 50,000 HAND CARVED oak tiles. Each wooden tile required at least 23 different procedures, resulting in over TWO YEARS worth of labor to create this masterpiece. You’ve gotta see it!

The amount of detail on this bug is astonishing! Everything from the hubcaps, to the steering wheel is covered with beautiful wooden tiles. I love that Mr. Bojic even made himself a hat to match his new ride! How chic is that?!?

According to the International Business Times, Mr. Bojic called his creation a “labor of love.” I love this phrase because it is so applicable to my life and I’m sure it is to yours as well. I think it’s important to remember to spend time doing things you love, no matter what is going on in your life –during the good and the bad. Whether it’s gardening, painting, writing, or creating a wooden Volkswagen… each of these “labors of love” create small Silver Linings, reminding us that there is always beauty in our world.
