More Goblin Goodies









Howdy...just a few more items to add to the Goblin Desk... Richard made the ink well and believe it or not...a wonderful tiny tiny hummingbird feather was found this morning out by our pond (our feeder is just above the pond) ...we would like to think that the little hummingbird knew Richard was wracking his brain on what to do for the pen & Quill part of the set...and decided to leave him a sweet little feather... yeah yeah...that's or story and we are sticking to it!!! Seriously ...it was there. This the the first ledger along with the Receipt Holder....sitting on top of the yet to be finished off desk. Other shots are Richard making the little gallions (100 to be exact when he is finished) he punches these from polished brass , buffs the edges and will mark each.
I need to write an article for a magazine today and gather pictures so we are taking off a day from the doll...although I suspect Richard will find himself out in the shop working on something Goblin Related!!
Also I am 'Gathering Gathering' Goodies for the Giveaway Box... this is FUN!!
Hugs,
Jodi

This is just way too, kewL... i can now comment!

The details that you both work and and stick, just makes your work that much more fascinating.

Thank you so much for sharing, i would love to see all of your tools, is that a punch to use on the brass?

As usual, i am so impatient to see the finish work, you both always set the bar higher in your pieces with each one that you both create.

What magazine are you writing an article for? So we can be on the look out for it.

Thank you again for sharing the progress of your work.

That should of read: "The details that you both work at and stick to, just makes your work that much more fascinating."

o goodness 100??? and then he has to buff them and mark them, that will be a lot of work in the tiny..
Can't say it is crazymen's work,'cause it would be something I would do ;), finish it up to the smallest detail, all have to fitt.
It will be a marvellous piece..

that hummingbird feather is perfect! Magic happens all the time, doesn't it? I love that you show your progress- it makes the pieces even more fascinating! Incredible so far!!

Jodi, I have 5 humming birds that hang out in the yard. Not ONE feather have they left! You must be reallllly fast to catch one by the tail like that!

Hi Jodi. I love what you are both busy making and amazed at the tiny coins. I often think i would like to make a witches bag with coins but have not had a clue how to go about such things. I love little details such as this and marvel at yours and Richards patience.
Your give away is also a good idea and i'm praying to the gods luck is on my side after the rabbit is pulled.
I have just finished a posting about Debbie and you can find further details there.
Can i ask you a favour? Could you create a posting on your blog diverting people over to mine so i can spread the info much quicker.
Hopefully the more people i can get to do this the quicker Debbies friends will be able to join in.
Thank you for your help if you can.

Hi Casey...
Our house is teaming with hummingbirds year round...I have several feeders (which keeps us busy filling them) ..it also attracts the BEAUTIFUL Bullock's Oriole (bright yellow and orange and black) "Halloween Bird'...lol!
Our little 'Nature Case is filled with many tiny tiny hummingbird feathers...way too small for the quill ...until this one...maybe it's a Thank You for all the sugar water...hee hee.

Hugs,
Jodi

Hi Sandi...

I am pretty sure that Richard would leave in a New York Second if he could go and live in Australia...so be careful what you wish for...LOL!!

Amazing...such detail. I cannot imagine how Richard will mark the gallions lol.

I can't believe you get hummingbird feathers....we have loads of hummingbirds here and not once have I been lucky enough to grab a feather.

Can't wait to see the next step !
