Halloween doll house

Doing some stone work on the doll house today. I work on it in between other projects so it's taking a long time. I find it very relaxing. I'm thinking of ways to make this look very old. I have to figure out how to add the door, or doors on the back still. Today I am going to Hobby Lobby to look at lighting. I want a creepy fireplace with an orange glow to it. I like it so far.

folk art, vintage, artist Teddy Bear, one of a kind

 Before and After
I have really enjoyed making this little Teddy. She looked so sweet before I tea-stained her, and after. I found the chair in my local charity shop, it had arms but one was broken. I took the arms off and filled and sanded the holes then painted it. Not bad for $1.

Artist Bear Original

I sat a played yesterday in my studio. I wanted to make a new bear pattern that was way smaller than I usually do. 
I have created two patterns that where smaller a long time ago but I wanted one that was just a little easier on my eyes to hand sew.

 After making the pattern I cut it out in furry wool felt. I liked the end results but I want to tweak it a little next time.

 I will be making the pattern available on my Etsy store next week, when I am satisfied with the end results. 
I am also working on a cute little pink elephant as well. She will be a tad bigger that this bear. 

Anyway it's Mothers Day weekend and my family are coming over to spoil me, either that or I am going to cook clean and spoil them. Stay tuned for Bella the pink elephant.
