SCULPTURE THINGY

First, thanks everyone for such nice comments on my little farmer's market booth! I so much appreciate it!

The earring "house" is very functional, but I found that people couldn't see the earrings well and sorta didn't notice them enough, so I put all the earring pairs on white cardstock and hang them on the wire on those. Much better!

It is such a beautiful day here in Wisconsin! The bottom part of our state is flooded right now though and we are all feeling just terrible for everyone there. :((( I just can't imagine how horrible it would be to lose your home.

Last night I got a new idea in my head. I love making my little bird sculptures with the wire legs. I thought I could make a cute stuffed muslin girl holding a cat with those same skinny wire legs... maybe subconsciously I want SKINNY LEGS! Om... OK... CONSCIOUSLY THEN! Anyway, it turned out so cute! I added two crows and put it all on an old vintage block I found at a really neat shop here in De Pere (right next to Green Bay).

Here's the girl that I stuffed and painted, before her legs and bird on top of her head are attached. :) She lays next to the little pattern I drew and used to cut the muslin out.



Here she is on my messy table. I am not the organized artist when I work... things are everywhere and I do not stop to tidy up! :)




And here she is with her two crow friends (one on her head and one standing next to her). NOT the greatest pic!




Thanks for taking a peek! I will post her in my etsy shop tonight, if all goes well! Have a great night everyone!!!

I am absolutely in love with this Liz.
I've had something in mind like this for awhile, but with wooden legs and 1/2 egg feet/shoes...
but the wire was a stroke of genius!~
Good luck with her. I'm sure you won't need it. :)
