Well lookie here what my darling Richard created... a Miniature Mountain Troll Foot Umbrella Stand straight out of Number Twelve, Grimmauld Place. We were going to work on this together... but he got on such a roll with this and enjoyed sculpting it so much that I never got a chance to dip my hands into the clay...lol!! I did paint it. I am crazy in love with this piece (wish I had a full sized one in my home) but alas, we don't have much rain here in the desert!
Anyway...this miniature foot is hand sculpted in polymer clay (including the toe nails) the ring at the top is brass. The cane is wood and carved tagua nut. The umbrella is complete with brass framework/ribs ...covered in fine cotton.
I think we will be listing this on EBAY sometime today ...been ages since we have listed anything on EBAY...
Thanks for taking a peek and Richard's little Mountain Troll Foot (sounds weird...I know!)

GOOD GOLLY MISS MOLLY...I lost a day!!! I will never understand how that happens... I mean, I didn't fall off the face of the earth, and there were no Alien Abductions involved..... I just got up...and got into work and doing stuff and first thing I know...the day is gone.. the sun is down, I am still in my sweats, my hair looks like a family of unruly rats have moved in and I am speaking in unintelligible grunts.
This is what happens when I get focused on work...all else stops...or rather all else speeds by and I remain in a fixed position at my table...I can tell when I have been there too long these days... when I do get up to move to another part of the house... I resemble a big soft & twisted pretzel (only without the mustard...oh wait, there is a bit on my top...never mind!!)... We didn't even do our walk yesterday...of which now my dog is not speaking to me.... The weather was gloomy here in Havasu (I HATE that) ...really chilly for this time of the year (we should be in the low 80's...ahhhhh)
but it was in the high 60's ...now that may sound warm to some suffering the winter chill in your neck of the woods...but to us desert rats, that is down right frosty!
Anyway...it seemed the perfect day to get lost in work... and lost I was...down the Rabbit Hole of creating...
We are working on a few things for EBAY right now...Miniature accessories and a new Doll that I had an idea for... and we are both really enjoying ourselves. I hope to post a couple of pics in the next day or so...
Well the day has started off cloudy...but I do see a patch of Blue to the North, so there is hope! My baby Tess will get her walk today...and we might even get in a bike ride later today...
My Coffee Cup says it all... "Go to the place that has no time....Time becomes meaningless in the Face of Creativity" by Fred Babb 1992...one of my FAVORITE Artist!
Have a Great Creative Day All... but try to stay clear of the Rabbit Hole!
