Updated with new pictures-The miniature Goblin Horse, steed of the Headless Horseman nearly complete

Sherry and I have worked diligently on Goblin, the Headless Horseman's horse for just under five days now.  Except for the hair around his feet and a few random small blood droplets, he's done :)  The glue around his feet is still drying so it looks wet in these photos.  We have worked seamlessly as a team, working on all parts of him and his riding tack (saddle, bridle, chest harness) to design him and his look and carry out our plans for him.  I also have the horseman sculpted as well as the jack o lantern head as well but they are not done yet.  He has to be fully dressed.  So far he has only his cowboy boots and naked booty to show off, so he's not fit to be seen yet :)

Sherry built from scratch this beautiful saddle out of leather and metal filigree pieces.  It turned out really gorgeous :)  We designed the look as a team and how it should be put together and decorated but she made it herself.  Since this was her first saddle, you can imagine how proud she was over how well it turned out!  Quite an accomplishment all on it's own for her.
No that's not our horse, hehe, that's my Christmas nativity scene's donkey :)  He made a good holder for the saddle while we worked on Goblin.

Well done Sherry!

And as for Goblin, he's quite lovely himself!  The saddle looked very nice on him.  I think for this being our first horse, we did very well (not to pat ourselves on the back, but you know!)

Here's our spooky boy!

Ok I know that's a ton of pictures but we're proud and must show him off!
The base will be very well done before the end with many kinds of moss, grasses, dirt, etc. and of course the horse will have his headless rider about to throw his flaming pumpkin head :)  We're being very careful to do a good job and it should be quite nice in the end.  We love him already :) 

Updated pictures of the Marie Antoinette set that is now painted and ready for decorated:

And I just made this 9" x 8" pumpkin patch last night for anyone who might need one:

Update on the miniature Halloween Headless Horseman

Sherry and I have been hard at work when we can on this Headless Horseman's horse Goblin (as referred to in the original story about Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving which can be read here:
We have been hand-sculpting the horse which is not done yet and has no ears at this point and makes him look strange.  He will have ears of course, as well as a neck and gorgeous Tibetan lambs wool hair mane and long tail.  He will need to be smoothed out by sanding and then painted, so this is rough yet.  But Sherry did a lovely job sculpting the face while I have been busy building the body.  I think he will be quite fearsome in the end :)  He'll have red eyes!  The horseman will be dressed in black with a partially red cape and of course have no head.  He will instead be holding a flaming pumpkin head as if he were about to throw it at someone :)  Sherry and I will be building a leather saddle as well as a bridle.  It should be petty cool before it's all over.  Here's what we have so far:

I think he'll be really good in the end.  He's pretty rough right now, but I won't rest until he's as good as I can manage.  I know Sherry's on her game with this one too, so we'll both be working to get him right and his master as well :)

Let them eat cake!

I have a very basic start on this, with just the finish on the dressing table done.  I have big plans for an elaborate style miniature that Marie herself would have been quite at home sitting at.  A powdered wig with curls, makeup, hairbrush, and so much more :)  There will be a matching small chest of drawers with a lovely cake stand on it, holding a pretty little cake and a small frame with the credo attributed to her "Let them eat cake!".  Here's the finish they will both have:

It's raining here today so I had to shoot these pictures in my photocube :(  So they're bad.  But you get the idea :)

Sherry and I are still working on the horse for the headless horseman, but it's going to take a little time.  It's not the easiest thing in the world to sculpt a rearing horse.  So the project will take awhile.  When I get to a place where I feel comfortable showing it, I'll post it here.

Product Spotlight:

Madame X Perfume Oil:

Madame X


Wicked, sinful, hedonistic, and irresistable. You may not have the heart to play the femme fatale, but you can at least smell the part. It's musky, creamy, enticing, perfumy, slightly foody, but very skin-like. It has a profound effect on men, they have no idea of what is bothering them's you. It has a profound effect on the wearer as well. Since I created Madame X I have changed my hairstyle, bought a gorgeous black strapless long dress (and have a place to wear it) and many other disturbing personality changes, too. Don't miss out on Madame X. The more I wear this one, the more I love her. A constant favorite among the Possetiers. Characteristics: musky, creamy, feminine, foody, gourmand, scent locket.

Available here:

I have this, it's delicious!  Oil perfumes are great for dry or aging skin, running through the dry ends of your hair, and generally just smelling fantastic without bowling people over from the scent "throwing itself out at everyone" which has become a serious no no in office settings.  Try them out-they're afforable and fun, because you can change scents often without smelling like the same tired old perfume day after day without spending a fortune :)

Dollhouse Miniature Halloween Set now done :)

Remember the bench?  I decided to go Halloween Prim with it, with bright colors and patterns and rustic details so popular with country-style enthusiasts.  And it matched the peg tree so much that I made them a set :)  Here's what I started with:
A basic bench, nothing special.  I padded it, and wrapped it in a miriad of different colorful Halloween patterns.  I decided it would be neater as a love seat, usable inside a house instead.  Here's what I did:

I love different backgrounds! 
Ok, so this may not be for everyone, obviously, but there are people who collect this style of Halloween design.  Twine and antique buttons and colorful patterns galore.  And a Jack O Lantern flower arrangement.  Bright Country Prim Halloween :)

A grave situation, in miniature :) And another Harry Potter Miniature for good measure

Ok you know how I said I wouldn't be making any more minis until Sherry got here?  Well apparently I fibbed :)  Having caught the Halloween fever I couldn't help but whip up a few haunted house graves.  These are messy to make, and not a lot of fun to clean up after doing.  I figured I'd save someone else the hassle and make some in case anyone was making a spooky scene and needed some.  I had last years graveyard scene which I didn't really like how it turned out at all.  I took on too big of a project and wimped out on it after so long.  And I was so new to mini making that I just didn't have the experience yet to do it as well as it needed done.  I tore it apart and used some of the parts to make smaller individual graves.  These could be added into a scene much easier.  I'll zip it and just show you:

The first is a more traditional grave with an additional calla arrangement made by Sherry can can be placed anywhere.
The second is a pair of graves that can be used together or seperately.  They are more Halloweenish in design and have the funny skeletons coming up out of the dirt.  Man these pictures are horrid, so much better in person :( 

Another thing, I've added a set of Harry Potter mini butterbeer bottles and pumkin juice bottles up for general sale in the store. 

I had two custom orders for these so I figured if I'm making them might as well add a set for general sale too :)

New dollhouse miniatures available in the store, some Harry Potter Miniatures

New items, Sherry's absolutely fantastic minis (everything available here: ) :

and a haunted mansion bed complete with removable ghost doll (and removable spider webbing should the customer not like that) that I made last night.  I wanted to start doing a few more affordable pieces and this is one of them.  Very reasonably priced :)  And I could not get a flippin' decent picture of this to save my life :(  White doesn't photograph well for me, no matter what I do.  And the ghost lady is white, go figure :)

Halloween is coming up, I figured it was time to get a few haunted/spooky pieces in the shop.  Stay tuned because there will be more :)

Custom Ordered Harry Potter Miniature Tree all finished :)

Okie doke, here it is :) 

I wanted to make this owl fluffier with more curly feathers because it's so cute that way. 

Thank you all for your kind words all of the time!  I wish Blogger was fixed so I could comment back!  Trust me, I read all of them and cherish every comment :)  Thank you for the praise on my work, that's always nice to hear!

and is the work of the respective artist.
~~~~~~~~Stay tuned, Sherry and I will be working together on a super fun project when she gets here.  What will we be making?  Why a 1/12 scale headless horseman on a rearing black spooky horse holding his flaming pumpkin head in honor of the upcoming Halloween holiday!  I've ordered the lovely black wool hair for the horse and I'll begin sculpting him as soon as it gets here :)  This project should rock your socks guys and gals!  And it will be super duper fun for Sherry and I :)

Almost finished on the custom ordered Dollhouse Miniature Harry Potter tree

I still have to make the owl, and the golden snitch but everything else is done :)  Gosh, things have been so crazy around here it's been very difficult to find the time.  Remodeling, sick husband, kids, school activities, etc.  It's shocking I've gotten any sleep at all!  Or gotten this far on this tree.  My poor dear client has waited patiently this long, hopefully she can wait another day for this to be done.  I'm trying!  I think this turned out lovely so far, and more detailed if anything.  I had to make another chocolate frog climbing on the tree because they were such an interesting part of the movie (Candy frogs that really jump?  Cute!)  Notice the howler letter down low on the tree front :)  It was so amusing when that letter began yelling at Ron in his Mother's voice, I just had to make one this time.  It's nearly identical in shape as it was when it was yelling at him.  I found a picture online and copied it in clay and paper :)  Except I did add on Ron's name.  Things that I made for certain characters from the movie are all addressed to whom they are to.  I guess I'll just show you what I have thus far, keeping in mind it's missing the super important owl right now but will have it in the end:

I'll post a finished update hopefully by tomorrow night.  And I will not make another tree for a long time lol!  I need a break, so this is the last one for quite awhile :)

Lower prices on existing items in the store, and returning customer coupon codes :)

Hello all, things have been a little hectic around here and I haven't had a ton of time to work on minis at the moment.  I thought it might be a good time to lower some prices in the store and offer a returning customer coupon code as well for an extra 5% off the already lower prices.  If you are a returning customer, have bought from me before, during checkout type in the coupon code "returningcustomer" all one word in to get your additional 5 % off the already lowered prices.  I know that's not much but like I said, I already cut prices by $5-$15 on most of my items :)  Worth a look anyway right?
