Happy St. Paddy's Day! (a day early)














Here's some green for ye.... in case I don't get around to posting tomorrow.... and also a photo of the week for my group doing that. Not that I don't put a picci on every single post..just that I don't post every single day. But, when I do..it's not just words for me...no, no.... must have a pretty picci.....

Looked around the house and ... well, not much green that I thought photo-worthy today. Well, other than plants perhaps... but, all of a sudden, my eye caught a fun thing with the teensiest bits of green on it. My elf chair. Although, at our house..it is a chair for little bears right now.

I made this back in '05..while in England visiting a doll maker. She got tired working on her doll and said...let's try something else...so we played with some newspaper, wire, Apoxy Sculpt and we made a little chair for a fairy or an elf.... then continued work on our dolls while waiting for the chair to dry (which take about 24 hours to make sure)











Don't know if you can see..but we poked some little holes in the wet material so we could hang
some beads through later..





















We sprayed the whole chair with copper colour.. touched it up withsome darker colours and some golds here and there.. added beads and even put some gold and pearls in nooks and crannies...














These two like it..... I think...

Hard to tell from those expressions..... hahahha.....

Happy St. Patricks day to you Vee.

I love your little chair and your bears look comfortable on it.

My Mum made a chair a long time ago out of a can and she had cut the sides down and then curled them around a knitting needle and then painted it gold - funny the things that jog your memory.
