This Weeks' Minis & A Door 'Hand'le...

Yesterday I exhibited at York Miniatures Fair (my favourite) & had a very enjoyable day, coming home with a list of commissions that will keep me busy for a long, long time :o) I was hoping to find a few bits & pieces for my own project (Casa De Groaza), but I was too busy all day & only managed to leave my stall about 15 minutes before the fair closed so all I managed to grab was some clay.
Normally I am all packed up & ready for a fair a couple of days beforehand but this time I wasn't. I still had a few minis to finish off & pack up by Friday evening but told myself that I could finish them Saturday, unfortunately Fate had different plans for me. Halfway through trying to finish the minis I received a phone call from my Mum saying that my son had had a little accident & she would pick me up on the way to the hospital. Apparently, being the accident-prone that he is he decided to show-off in front of his cousins while playing on the swings & jump off while it was high, he did manage to land on his feet but then fell forward, needless to say he has now broken his wrist :o( I still don't think he will have learnt his lesson, but that's kids for you.
Anyway, here are the few minis that I have made for eBay this week...

Chocolate Gateaux
Strawberry Charlotte

Pink Patchwork Cake

...and here's a few new minis that I have made for 'Casa De Groaza', a skull & bones windchime with dripping candles...

...and a door 'hand'le. If you 'google images' door hand lots of fantastic pictures come up including a door hand knocker, which I think I will make next as it looks really effective. Neither of these are fixed on permanently (just a bit of blu-tack) as I still have the windows & door to finish painting, but you get the general idea.


Hope you all have a fantastic week, hugs, Kerry.x.

He He love the spooky additions Kerry! Beautiful cakes, fancy working literally right up to the last minuite like that! I feel for you, boys eh! My son called me yesterday to tell me not to panic but he'd had a stone thrown at him on the beach by a 'freind' and had cut his eyebrow open. I go to facebook to his page and theres him with a face pouring in blood and his hand also covered in the stuff, I was going ballistic! But he tells me he was fine, St Johns ambulance patched him up and he got bought a free milkshake so hes happy........BOYS!!! Hope your one is ok bless him, wish they would learn from their little accidents! Kate xxx

Thank you Eva!! :o)
Oh Kate, your poor boy, hope he's okay now. My son is getting used to having the cast on his arm but I decided to keep him off school for a couple of days & it is still hurting him & I don't want him knocking it at school. We have to go back to the fracture clinic tomorrow to see the doctor. Hugs, Kerry.x.

Love the wind chime and door handle :) The cakes are beautiful, my fav is the strawberry charlotte. Glad your son didn't hit his head when he jumped. Kids can be so accident prone :( Sorry you didn't get in much shopping but sounds like you had a very successful fair.

Hugs

Hi Victoria, thank you so much!! My son had his check up today but it's turned out worse than what we first thought, the break is bent so he had to go into theatre & they manipulated back into place & put a full cast on his arm from his wrist to his shoulder :o( We have only just got back from the hospital after 10 hours. Hugs, Kerry.x.
