Bobble-Heads :o

Bryce Eleanor loves the little chicken sticks (think Vienna Sausage), and one day I thought I'd wash and keep a couple of little jars.  I took them up to  the studio and decided to use them for bobble-head dolls. What to put in them since they are so small?  M & Ms?  Candy corn?  I don't know, but I love the way the heads bounce!

I used an old apothecary label for the witch jar.  I found the perfect one at The Graphics Fairy!  The little clown just got an imprint from an old wooden Indian batik stamp I bought years ago.  I like the label better.

Bryce Eleanor will have to eat a lot of those little chicken sticks now, because I need more jars.  Wish I'd kept the previous ones.  Bobble-heads are such fun.

Remember the old oil can I found in one of my flea market/ junk outings a couple of months ago?  I started the little fellow below, but he kind of got lost in all of  the Halloween stuff.  I'm going to be working on him again soon.  I will work with the smaller one when I  figure out what to do with this one.  I've already used one of the little type writer tins, but want to work with the others soon, too.

I've made a stand for my Halloween man--he's been leaning on a shelf for months because I didn't know how I would mount him, but I painted a wooden "round" and now he stands without needing a wall to lean on.
