something different

mr moo recently tried to turn a kokeshi doll up for me but they looked a bit more like toadstools so...
while Claudia had a nap today i started to paint them. i will have to finish them tomorrow but this is what they look like at the moment. i really want to embrace my inner artist but alas i think it is hiding way way down too deep to come out.
i also wanted to give you a sneak peek at something i am working on for my etsy shop. i have neglected it of late, not that i had a rush of sales or anything but if i build up some stock i can endeavour to hold a market stall one day :) plus someone clever once told me the trick to a successful etsy shop is good photos and lots of stock.
mmmm sweet laced hanky and a gorgeous pattern...
whenever i show a peek of something i feel that ~Truman cottage~ moment happening (read a few posts back to understand what i am talking about)
speaking of ~Truman cottage~, i was talking to mick about a great show called stars in their eyes where amateur singers would dress up like a singer and sing their song and then a commercial for Australian idol came on and it is based on that idea...amazing hey!
off to get the girls from school then i might have to start the fire as it is rather chilly at the moment.
mmwwaahh

Your inner artist is on the surface, ma'am! Just look at things you created!! :D :D sometimes being a mother makes our inner artists bury themselves deep down in those recipe books and diapers and school stuffs. ... sigh...but not yours!

Hey Rosey! Love the pretty lace hanky - I love old/pretty/vintage linens! And I'm sure your "inner artist" will turn those little timber bobbities into pretty, spotty mushrooms just fine - can't wait to see them and if the resident faeries like the paint job, perhaps they'll grant some wishes! :0) Bear Hugs!
