WOW!!  I don't think I'd be able to keep myself out of there!!  You did a wonderful job   Grin

Do you have a link to a bigger picture of the Four Horsemen?  I'd love to see!

Jenna, when I come across some more of the pictures I took back then, I will see if a larger picture is in there, if so I will certainly post it for you. Much thanks for your interest.

As I said before I built the coach by referring to the picture of a horse drawn carriage I zeroxed from a library book. It was more of a drawing than a photgraph. I include here. I kept that picture pinned to the wall in my shop as I worked. My shop by the way was a prefab barn my husband bought for me so I could "putter around" as he called it. It was situated about 20 feet from my back door. When I moved, I know I left a really BIG piece of me back there in that little red barn. Those were truly very precious days for me.

153  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Dracula's Coach for Halloween on: February 10, 2012 11:08:13 AM
This carriage was made the year after I made the Four Horsemen. I used one of the horses from the Four Horsemen for Dracula's coach. Drac rode up top driving while his two lovely lady vamps rode inside. The coach was built by following a photo I got from a library book - that would be the drawing photo. The carriage is full scale; I would sit in it at night and pretend for a moment that I was back in the horse and buggy days. It was pretty neat.

Holy cow (or horse), that's amazing! Do you still have these? Do they make an appearance every Halloween? This is a fantastic project!

Actually, I destroyed the horses later on. Stripped them down for parts and hardware. I always saved one little scrap for a keep sake.

I did this one in oils. It's of my daughter-in-law and my grandson Christian. Christian is a twin and when one of them asks me (individually) which of them is in the painting. I would whisper in his ear, YOU are!!"

Ok, I think this goes here? Anyway, it certainly was a project, a fun project at that!! One of the things I used to love to do was build stuff for Halloween. And what I built was always built to full scale like these horses which are also built to full scale. They were built for the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" theme.

I am loving your posts, can't wait to see your Jerusalem jelly bean painting and this bassinet is AWESOME.

I am posting some pics under Misc since I don't see a specific catergory for them as I like building things, working with wood, too.

Thank you hon, Jerusalem will take a while mostly because I frit around doing other things that often distract me from working on it. It IS an involved piece! Will post updates  tho as it progresses.

I will post better pictures as soon as I can. I can't seem to get the pictures to come in here in a larger format or a close up format. It seems no matter what size they are, they come in here in the one size.
