War of 1812 Grande Parade

I'm baaack!!!  Had a wonderful time in the sunny south desert.  Now we're home, gardens are planted, shrubs are pruned and my golf game hasn't gotten any better.  Been busy over the past few weeks with the War of 1812 Bicentennial celebrations here in Fort Erie.  Hope you can join us for the Grande Parade happening June 23rd.  Check out the website at www.forterie1812.ca.  You'll be amazed!!

Well, it's that time of year!!!  Yayayay!!  We're heading south this Friday, can't wait to get out of this cold, rainy, miserable weather.  Should take us about 4 days to get to Arizona.

Biggest problem is that I can't take all my trinkets/creations and "stuff" with me.  Sooooo, a big sale this week only.  My Kachina is on sale big time.  Check out my etsy shop for deals, deals, deals.

Gordon Pilgrim, Gourd Art Doll

Well I got my hands on a bunch of dried gourds and....what to do with them????
A Pilgrim seemed logical at this time of year.  His hat is made out of an old piping tube and a couple of washers and a buckle of course.  Add some vintage doll parts, a black belt and buckle, a felt collar and loopy tie........tada.....Gordon Pilgrim....a Thanksgiving Squatter.
He's available in my etsy shop.

Little Domino Hanging Ornaments

Well I came across a couple of boxes of old old dominos and here's what happened.......
I got some pictures out of magazines and old doll books and pasted them onto some clear glass cabs......added some flower petals and some fibres and .... tada..... little hanging ornies.
Yikes.....she's spooky, in a cute kind of way.

I like this guy.  He reminds me of that guy in the trench coat on Laugh In.....what was his name?  Arnie?
He's got real faux mohair.

Yay for Ethan.  He's just adorable and he waits for a bath and waits for a drink (milk or wine, doesn't matter which), waits with Santa and waits for the school bus to bring the kids home from school.  He's always blushing red and he can count to 3.
My gosh I had so much fun making him - couldn't help but laugh at him.
He's available in my Etsy shop over there ========>>
