A Harbour and Bunnies

Two completely different crafts on the one page! I have been waiting to get half decent photos as I've got a new camera but havn't mastered it yet! (Might take a year or more)

First up is a Quirky harbour scene. Inspired by a local spot which sports 300 steps down to the bay. Down the bottom is a derelict house. The noise from the waves is something else and just imagine going up and down all those steps carrying barrels of fish or whatever. They must have been as thin as whippets. We've been down there twice in 22 years and that was enough for me!
Anyway I couldn't fit 300 steps on here I would have needed at plank of wood that fit through the front door and out the back, also wasn't about to cut out that many tiddy steps!

I dont know if you can see but the three seagulls are proud of the cliff so it looks more like they are flying. Got to have a buoy bobbing up and down as well.

Can you see the washing flapping in the wind? A pair of blue trousers and two red towels. The little fishing boat has port holes and fishing pots hanging on the side.

Not quite 300 steps! HH made the little boat and houses which I then painted and decorated. (he is rather pleased with it) Since this photo, he is going to screw a small ledge on the bottom of the plank so there is no danger of it tipping over, which could be removed if needed, to hang on a wall. It measures just over 12 long by 7 and half inches at it highest point.

Next up are the two bunny ballerinas, Rosseta and Rosebud. They are bigger than the others I have made being approx 11" high
                                                                    Rosetta Rabbit
Her knitted shoes and cardi are a lot brighter pink than the photo. She has a wrap over ballet card which matches her shoes, nice fushia pink and pearl necklace and sticky out double layer net tutu.

                                                                    Rosebud Rabbit
Here is her sister Rosebud. She has a fushia pink cabled jumper which matches her shoes. Her ears have two matching ribbons and a double layer net tutu which has a pink ribbon around the edge. She also is wearing her favourite pink and pearl necklace. Both will be going into my Etsy shop.

  3. I love the quirky feel of your pics... I can smell the sea and feel the breeze... and I know what you mean about the steps, I cheat down here in Leigh-on-sea by walking up the hill which is longer but easier on the legs :)

  19. You little house scenes just intrigue me! That is so cool. BTW I know what you mean about a new camera. I had a Nikon D60 which I have literally worn out and just upgraded to a D7000. I am using it, but having to learn and it's hard. :) I sympathize with you.
    Love the fuzzy bunnies, they are adorable, and so well done.

  26. I think every home should have a wooden scene like this. I like how the wood gives the look of a sandy hill.
