Death and Decay

My new project is far from what I thought it would be. I just feel like doing a really dark and macabre piece. I am coming off a 2 day pounding headache so maybe I can get some work done. This came to me yesterday when I posted pictures of my cleaver collection on FaceBook to show April my latest find. So get ready for blood, knives and darkness with a sense of humor. Am only posting 1 picture of Death and Decay so far and my cleaver collection. Every one take care and keep cool.

Absinthe Hell is Finished !!!

Welcome new followers. Absinthe Hell is finished and will be listed in my Etsy store today. I am pleased with the finished cupboard, I decided not to use the green candle holder. In fact there are no candles. Absinthe is so green and sparkley she glows. She is full of emotion bottles, skulls, absinthe bottles whose labels are from magicpug on etsy. I added little pictures, rotting death lilies and dragon flies. Absinthe Hell is about the hell of addiction. I don't know what the next Hell will be, I need to make some fairy harps and start on a commission. I am proud to announce I am a member of Team MIDS and Etsy Dark Team.

Absinthe Hell Coming Along

Absinthe Hell is coming along very slowly. Way to many interruptions last week. My daughter kidnapped me on Friday to go have lunch with her and my grandson and then some shopping. April bought me Alice In Wonderland for my birthday so I can now watch it again. As you can see I have added some little side shelves and ripped out shelves and added more. The cupboard has been grunged and sealed, I still need to add some grunge to my bottles and make more. Don't ask what the thing on top is with the dangling green beads, was going to be a candle holder but maybe not. Next post you will see this finished.

Till The Finish,

Absinthe Hell

I am getting a slow start on Absinthe Hell. First I didn't like the cupboard so I made a back for it, I had 2 more cupboards for future projects setting there so I dinked with them and side tracked myself, I think I have adult ADD sometimes. I finally last night got it to the point I wanted anyone to see it. So here it is in the first stages, I still need to seal it but wait to do that till I am done gluing stuff on it. I so far have vintage stampings, vintage buttons and some cool bead cones. I will post more as I get further along, I will start my bottles tonight which involves me gluing my fingers together.

Knight's Cupboard Finished

I finished 2 days ago and have been too busy to post. Here it is finished. I have had a hard day starting with my washing machine committing suicide. It was full of wet Levi's and socks, had to pull out wet heavy clothes and bail out all the water as Annie tried to help LOL. I will be starting Absinthe Hell this week and will post as I go. I want to Thank everyone for their wonderful comments on my cupboards, it means a lot to me.

Sweet Dreams,

Knight's Cupboard Ready To Load

Here is where I am so far. The cupboard is ready to start loading and I need to find some more embellishments for the top, am looking for a missing box of bling. This cupboard is for a boy so I didn't want to make bead bottles so I came up with the idea to use 9mm brass from spent bullets, modern warriors use guns instead of swords. I will post pictures when this is done, I still haven't decided all the contents. I will be starting my next Hell project which will be Absinthe Hell.

Sweet Dreams,

A Knight's Tale

I just have to say Thank You for following my blog, I now have 11 followers YIPPIE! This week I am working on a commission for a Knights Cupboard for a child. I have picked a vintage cupboard that looked a little medieval and cut a back for it with the scroll saw my hubby just bought for me. I am going to start making my own cupboards, I prefer vintage ones but live in a rural area where it is impossible to find anything. How to find supplies when you live in the middle of nowhere will be a post in itself. I got the back glued on my cupboard and did a little painting and ripped out some shelves. I still don't know what all will go in here. I have gathered up some bits and am making shields and some flags. I made a Templar knights helmet to put in the cupboard. Maybe some of my followers have some ideas to what I need to fill this cupboard. I have some swords stashed away and will use them. I will post pictures when I start to place my bits.

Till next time,

I took the morning off to go visit my Grandson Story who just turned four. Annie will be 9 months old tomorrow so it will sort of be a birthday for her too. I have 4 followers now, it is so exciting. I will be working on my next Hell project and the Knights cupboard, I have requested permission to post pictures of the cupboard on this blog she if she agrees I will post as I go along. Every one have a safe Independence Day.
