Remi and Rudy

Remi is my newest creation ... a sweet little Snowgirl.
She's a bit shy, so she brought 
her favorite ragtag baby, Rudy. 

Remi even has a removeable backpack with drieds
and wait...
who is that stowaway hitching a ride??

From the tip of her head right down to her clay shoes,
there is much attention to detail on this little girl.
She is lightly glittered with mystical snow and
her pinafore has been hand embroidered in great detail
and her arms are wired for posing.
Remi is ready for her premiere
on the TDIPT Mercantile this Wednesday night. 

She's a keeper, for sure!

The time has come....

We knew it would come to this eventually ...
even with time to prepare our goodbyes, it doesn't make it any easier.
You see,  Fall is our favorite time of year here at my home - and Rex is hesitant to give up his space on my workbench!

I must say, Rex may be my last punkinhead for the season - but I won't forget him anytime soon!
From his wool felt top hat right down to his boots with little socks sticking out, I have
so enjoyed creating this boy.

He whispered to me very late in the evening
how much he loves bats - so I thought it was
the least I could do to make his last wish come true.

Love you, Rex!

For the record, Rex has a job on his hands...
keeping timely company with this sweet dew-drop
as they make their way
to their new home. 
As Rex puts it: 
"it's a dirty job... but someone's got to do it"  :)
