Where did the time go????

Well....has it really been this long since I posted???
 My poor little blog thought I forgot about her! 
I better "Get To it"  and write something!!! 
Life has a way of slipping by in the blink of an eye!

I have been very busy working on a lot of projects. Both old and new.
 So first I will show you what I am working on at the moment and then hopefully in the next few days
some updates on other related items.

Halloween...it will be here before you know it. Yikes! October in less than 30 days!!! No...it can't be!!!
Well...I have been working on a piece called "Whoo and Boo" this is the first few photos of the sculpt.
 Ummm...what is it???

 Beginning of Armature
 Adding the clay
HeeHee...funny looking....  :-D
 Beginning to look more like an owl.
Almost finished with sculpting, then on to painting and working on his passenger Boo!
I hope to have them done before Halloween. I will post pictures as I get closer!

Nodders!

I came across these little cuties recently and just had to post pictures of them.
They are 3 inches of cuteness!
 Made in Germany these little dolls are stationary except for their heads which turn in different directions.
They are held on by elastic strung through the tops of the heads. Different companies made them from 1920 on.  Mine are not marked but I believe they are German. So cute...just had to share!

R.I.P.

My heart was broken a couple of weeks ago...
We lost our beautiful Arabian horse Mirage.
So sudden...I was not prepared for it.
I still miss him greatly...
I find it so hard to go out to the barn and not have him greet me with
his wonderful whinnies and nudges begging for a scratch behind the ears.
A beautiful being that enriched our lives greatly!
Until we meet again for another ride in the heavens!
I love you... and miss you....my faithful steed!!!
