New dolls.......

I know these are a little out there as there is a doll with a perfume bottle filled with pearls coming out of her head and yes that is a branch growing out of that other dolls head and yes that other one has a belt made from a napkin ring and yes the other one has a flower for a head......lol
But they were in my head to make for ages, and now they are done I feel a little clearer and can now concentrate a bit more normalish stuff.

Hanging spider............

Every now and then you see a spider and its hanging from the ceiling from a thread.
There is a moment where the spider is still, very still with its legs out and its spins slowly.
You watch it for you you know any moment it will spring to life by either going back up silk or will fall to the floor.
I love seeing this and bizarrely see it often.
I'm superstitious and whenever I see it I believe it means that something good is going to happen.
Its my superstition,not sure where it came from or when it became true.
Like a song that follows you and you hear on the radio wherever you go.
Mines a spider hanging down...
This tiny blue velvet lady hangs above my sewing machine.
A reminder that if you wait something good will follow or appear on a silken line.

Albino hedgehog and friends.........

A Mole,A Hedgehog and his Albino friend are finished today....
They hang on the wall like little busts.
I'm very fond of the albino one.
I love albino creatures and think that they really conjure up so many fairytale images. Top of the list has to be hedgehogs for me though.
If ever there was a creature to me that could grant a wish it would be one of these.
In my etsy shop now.........

Little birds heads.....

New little birds heads,just finished today.
As you may know I don't usually use these eyes in my work but they just seemed so 'beady' and perfect.
They look great on a mantle piece which is where I have them all right now.








I was tempted to make little pincushion hats for them but in the end thought they looked better with out them.
