Grandmother Toad Relisted

Grandmother has been relisted with no reserve.  She didn't make her reserve the first time around.

I just finished this little mouse last night and got some pictures of him today. He's a lucky fellow because he's found a four leaf clover and a new lady bug friend. His auction starts tonight at the usual time and his reserve price is $135.00 with a Buy It Now of $224.00. Thanks for looking!

Mr. Blue

Here's a little bluebird that I finished today. He's just 3 inches tall and is a little larger than life-sized.  His auction should start on eBay this Sunday at 6:45 pm PST. The reserve price is $135.00 and his Buy It Now is $220.00. It's a bit lower since he doesn't come with any extras.

Timothy's Dutch Shoe

 I just finished this little bunny this morning. He's a Netherland Dwarf Rabbit. It seemed only fitting that he should have his own Dutch wooden shoe yo rest in. Timothy stands at 7 inches tall, ears included. He is scheduled to go up for auction on eBay Sunday at 6:45 pm.  He has a reserve price of $135,00 and a Buy It Now of $224.00.
 I hope you like him.

Living in 2010

I thought you all might find this one kind of funny.  I don't usually read forwarded emails. But when I got this one & I had to chuckle.


1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

2 You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.

6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.

7 Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.

8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.

11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )

12 You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.

14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list

Jean-Luc, the Ship Rat ~ a Bonvivant Gentleman of Fortune

I just finished Jean-Luc yesterday afternoon and took some quick photos of him today. This little rat was aquite a bit of work. His entire costume was hand sewn, including his wool tri-corner hat.  It was really interesting doing some research on pirate costuming. The Gentlemen of Fortune website was a real storehouse of information. I don't think I'd ever heard of slop pants, bucket boots or justacorps ever before. I never realized exactly what went into making those cool pirate coats. The pattern that I found on the internet was pretty involved.  There was a lot of readjustment to get it rat -proportioned. They tend to be thicker in the waist than a human.  Pictured below is the pattern that I found. You can see just how tiny the waist was.

Jean-Luc's eBay auction will begin Sunday, February 7 at 6:45 pm PST. 
His reserve price will be set at $165.00 and his Buy It Now will be $295.00
