Halloween dollhouse miniatures

Today the weather is lovely and sunny and it is very hot outside. After I have typed this post I'm going to go out into the garden and enjoy some planting and get my hands muddy. I love being in the garden so much at this time of year. I love how quickly everything grows and the striking colour from the pretty flowers, the fresh scent of newly mowed lawn, watching as my cats roll around lazily in the sunshine. I could sit and watch the butterflies and insects buzzing around for hours, it's so relaxing. So being in the midst of summer it is quite hard to turn my attention ahead towards Autumn and Halloween. However that is what I have done and I have made these little Halloween cuties (pictured above) ready and painted for the dollhouse. The size will suit a 1:12 scale dollhouse. I absolutely adore making little pumpkins with faces. When I begin sculpting the faces they seem to choose their own personalities which comes through in their facial expression. It's almost like I have no control over them and they just morph in front of my eyes. My favourite out of these little guys is the one on the far left of the picture, he just looks so grumpy lol. I'm going to be making many more of these over the next few months as well as many more Halloween themed items. I find Halloween gives me so much inspiration. Anyway that sunshine is calling me so I'm off out to find my trowel. Catch up with you all soon :)
