well I tried to sell my sopranino without success, so it became another handpainted uke project...this time for my daughter, who has fallen head over heels for it. Funny thing is, her only other uke is an Emil Bader mango pineapple...HA!!! Perfect! :)

just in time for summer, the camping trips and the lovely evenings on the verandah. we grow lots of fruit on our farm too, so the uke will fit in nicely round our home. Cheers for taking a look gang :)

Very sweet, indeed.

What are those colorful strings? (They must have taken forever to paint!)

Now that is pretty cool - only problem is I'd get hungry every time I played...

How much would you charge me to paint my KoAloha with Winnie the Pooh characters? (Just kidding...though maybe one of the Mainlands and Dilbert characters...yeah...we might need to talk!)

thankyou everyone for having a look and for your lovely comments.

Yeah stan, jemimah loves it, hopefully it will reinvigorate her interest in playing!

Connor, these are Lil' Barney strings, I think he's based somewhere in the UK. His ebay seller name is jasperhappy (http://www.ebay.com/sch/jasperhappy/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686). They are just OK. One packet will give you two sets easy but they are certainly not overly loud....very cute though.

Lily, we love our place. In the summer we grow and sell cut flowers, liliums and proteas mainly. And yes, lots of fruit...apples, peaches, cherries, pears, apricots, lemons, watermelon, strawberries and raspberries :)

HA! Funny Daniel, that's the exact first song we were planning to record with it. Because the kids both grew up listening to and watching the wiggles, me and eugenie did too :rolleyes:
