White blue eyes horse

(If you like to view the auction , please click on the picture)

Last week , my dearest friend Anita, from castlescrownscottages did a marvelous post( like always) title * My fair ladies*.She also had received an award and one of the rules was to name 7 things that no one knows about herself...Anita said that she would love to have white horse the kind with blue eyes, pink noses and lips.
Needless to say that I was inspired by her pictures of a beautiful mature white horse in which was perfect because the little fellow that you see here has been sitting on my desk since last spring . He was patiently waiting for my inspiration to *dress* him and Anita gave just what I needed- Thank you Anita! *grin*

This grizzly bear is one of my favorites bear. I love his position but mostly his face. I now make the teeth bone color instead of white and I am very pleased with the results. real bears do not have white teeth!*grin*

This German short hair pointer dog was a job. Short wool is more time consuming that long wool application and if one makes mistakes in cutting , have to start all over again , plus face some glue problems.
This little fellow was good to me. I had no problems and he turned out great. I used a picture of a real dog from the internet and he had a similar collar. I decided at the end to add one but it can come off.

This past summer I spent a good time making Big Joe. he was not for sale . I made him for my porcelain ball jointed dolls. you can click Here to read about him and see more pictures.
Few weeks ago I decided that was about time for me to make a miniature horse. Big joe is always with me , I could not resist and made a Little Joe!*grin*

My little cats are getting some lovely attention on ebay. I am so happy about it because I really wanted to improve making the cats and I think I am getting better each time. The pictures will never be real about their size...........these cats are *very* tiny and to make 1mm glass , is a job alone.

OH DEAR! YOU MADE MY DAY!!!!! I had mentioned to Ruben that you were going to post a new animal that you lovingly said I had inspired you to do...he said, "I wonder if it is a white horse with blue eyes..."! HE WAS RIGHT! OH my goodness, I must go onto your auction to learn more about this little white mist! Thank you for the honor of running with this dream! He is just gorgeous! Bisous, Anita

I just came from seeing You got the eyes down perfect...the same sky blue and the pink muzzle! You really are gifted beyond my words, my dear, dear friend. Have a pleasant, fun and productive day! Bisous, Anita

Oh I just had to visit again before the day gets started around here...I have got to send you a hilarious picture of an attempt that I made to create a horse with that nice tight, close fur. I took a regular stuffed animal and clipped the fur really close. The result is a silly "wannabe" of a cute, old stuffed horse. It pales greately in comparison to your magnificent equine!!! Anita

Your miniatures are fabulous. They're all beautiful, but the Portuguese water dog made laugh out loud. Cute.
