Makin' tiny little skeletons today. A few more layers of darkness to apply to the outside of the tin, and a bit of structural grimness inside, and we're about done.

Wulf

"Structural grimness" tickles me.  Last year I moved into The ManFlesh's house that turns 100 this year.  Many of the former owners' DIY projects are, shall we say, lacking in sense... now I will think of them as structural grimness.  Sooo much of these things are slipshod or slapdash that I was HUGELY surprised and equalli disappointed when I learned that a 6' closet shelf had been screwed to the cleats TWELVE (12) TIMES with 2 inch screws.   Sigh.  The studs on that wall stop a good 1.5 - 2 feet shy of the floor.   Shocked   Cry

Thanks!  I'll post them on the fridge with all my many, many others.   Wink  It usually kills me to have to wait for my partner to receive before I post, but I have a few projects around the house today so I'm doing ok so far. Undecided

I sent, I sent!  I also sent the DC to all the appropriate parties via PM, because that's the kind of swapper TheMistressT is, boy howdy.   Tongue

Thisbird, yours should go out in Saturday's mail.  It's just the last little thing, photo shoot, then boxing up.  I found the perfect tissue to pack it in at the thrift store yesterday!
SOOOOO excited!! Grin

Dee ewe en, done!  There's a little E6000 to dry yet, but it's done enough that I just took a squillion photos.  I'll make a box tonight, delicately package it tomorrow morning and drive it to the PO.  Then come home and send PMs with the DC, of course.  Ahem.

I refreshed my craftster homepage and said "Hey!  Tha'ts mine!"  Alllllll mine! 

It's so fantastic in person, too!  Zoltar looks down on us from the plate rail in our dining room, granting my wishes for second helpings and another glass of wine, please.

THANK YOU THISBIRD! 
LOL - I just KNEW he would come in handy!  (and thanks for the great pics! Smiley)

Soooo handy.  If you want more photos of specific things, close-ups, etc. just say the word and I'll get them for you.  It's a big rain fest here today so that last piece of yours is taking forever to dry between coats AND taking photos will be a bit challenging.  Luckily our front porch is out of the rain and west facing.

He wasn't cooperating.

Do we have a cruel circusmaster in our midst??

You do know you must share what happened to the "poor beast" now don't you?

I second the motion.  All in favor, say aye...

Just saw this on etsy's front page and thought it appropriate to share with youse guys.

  The little sack contains allspice, rosemary, thyme and star anise.  I made sure I looked up herbs and spices that would only bring you the best of fortune.  Wink
  Also had to laugh at the picture of the bottom - is that a hair from one of your dogs or one of mine?  LOL.
 

Well, it smells just the kind of delicious that I like! 

I like to think that ol' Zoltar has just a few grey ones coming into this glossy black beard and that he plucks them out for the sake of vanity, but that this one gave him away as perhaps not completely upfront and honest about things.  Ahem.  (My dogs don't have a lot of white hairs, but it could be from one of them OR part of a cat whisker.)

Conjoined twins!  YEY!  You are a master with modifying the clip art, Microjivvy and I bow to your skills!

This may be turning into the Wicked Circus Fortune Teller Altered Altoid Tin Swap!  Check out the wickedness I received from thisbirdsabsurd today!  No wonder the dogs were barking their heads off at the mailman - animals can sense things.   Wink

May I present to you the wise and great Zoltar!

Soooo detailed!

The inside is filled with mystical tools of the fortune telling trade:

Look how fortunate I am!

A better look at these wonders, including a magic lamp, runes, a crystal, paper fortunes, skulls, a great-smelling sack of good fortune (mace? I'm bad with spices) and MORE:


Under the wonders, just what I wanted to hear from Zoltar for my 75 cents!


The back:


That's not all!  Check out the sides!

Sparkly AND dark! 

The top from a bit of an angle so you can see a bit more of the textural detail


Aaaaannnnnnd there's this fantastic watercolor (it's a watercolor, right?) of some conjoined twins!  Eeeeek!


Thank you, thank you, thank you, thisbirdsabsurd!  This is so wonderful and so detailed!  Thank you also for shooing out the centipedes and horseshoe crabs before sending!  There's only so much wicked TheMistress can handle.   Kiss
