Meet Varulv & Lilla Röda, Master & Mistress of Casa De Groază...

I finally got around to almost finishing the Master & Mistress of 'Casa De Groaza', Varulv & Lilla Roda (swedish for werewolf & little red, respectively), there's still a little bit of work that I want to do on both of them, but not much. One of my all-time fave movies is 'An American Werewolf In London' & I have sat watching it over & over again (I have a tv/dvd combi right beside my work desk) to try & hopefully recreate some sort of resemblence.





Most of the items I will be making for 'Casa De Groaza' will be inspired by movies or halloween decorations that I have seen, but I saw some candle stands in the garden centre & wanted to create them in miniature with dripping candles in them, I ended up making two as I didn't particularly like the first one although now I think I'm going to keep both.





This 'warning sign' will be placed on the front porch, it was my second attempt at making a crow, as the first one looked like an overgrown blackbird, this one looks a little more menancing, next to it is the 'rat on a pumpkin' that I won in Mags' giveaway, isn't it fantastic!! I love it & the detail on the rat is perfect. I was going to place this on the front porch but I'm now thinking it can go in the kitchen.





Another of my fave movies is 'Practical Magic' & on the dvd menu screen there are little symbols beside each selection. One of the symbols is an 'all-seeing hand' & I knew one of these would look perfect on the fire surround (when I get around to making it,lol).





As well as making a few bits for myself I have been working on some new minis for sale, I love making fruits & flowers & have created a little display that incorporates both. I tried to make a cupcake stand like the one I have in my kitchen, a metal spiral one that holds 24 cupcakes, but I just couldn't get it right, so I decided to go for a different design instead before I ran out of wire. These will be going up for auction on eBay tonight.


Have a fantastic week, hugs Kerry.x.

Hi Kate, thank you so much!! I'm still undecided about the werewolf, might have a go at another one that stands (like in 'The Howling')I'll definitely make some more candles & pop some in the post for you soon. Have a great day, hugs, Kerry.x.

Kerry said...

Thank you Victoria!! Can't wait to see your werewolf, I think mine looks like a dog, too, an angry dog, lol, & if I do decide to make a standing one then that will probably just look like a standing angry dog, lol. Hugs, kerry.x.

Hi Kerry, how creative you have been. I think my favourite is the All Seeing Hand but the candles are really effective I am with Kate, I hope you make more of these.
