Christmas In June

 I found lots of goodies at Goodwill.  The nutcracker is in almost perfect condition; a few spots of worn paint and a ball is missing on the crown.  Easy peasy.
 The doll is a 1983 Bradley Doll "Send In The Clowns".  I removed the costume, washed it and then I washed the doll (carefully).  The wooden sleigh is going to become a centerpiece filled with fruit, ribbons (the black & white) and greenery.  The sleigh is going to have a few black and white touches here and there; MacKenzie Child's inspired (click HERE).  And the doll is going to be part of the arrangement after I embellish her costume (the black & silver material & ruffle).
That's the plan anyway, but you know how that goes, right?  It will take on a life of its own.

Polymer Clay Embellished

I used up some really old canes on this ceramic cowboy boot.  Didn't even make a dent in the cane stash.  I made this while ago before surgery.  I'm still in a half cast recouping from surgery at the elbow and wrist for an entrapped ulnar nerve.  Recovering soooooo slowly and can't really do anything.  Typing this left handed is hard - thank goodness for auto correct.
