Moose Mount & French Bed

Hi~
I have been busy with many projects , as usual*grin*, but I was able to finish this 2 this week.
I normally get requests for bears and deer mounts , but I thought a moose mount is just a nice adn different mount to have in a miniature setting like a cabin, office ....
This is very small... only one inch lone and two inches from an antler to another...
I think is my best set of antler and I try a different way and I like it a lot. The markings on the antlers can bee seen better at naked eyes or with better photograph .... I am a lousy photographer..*grin*

I made this bed using my own miniature painting as part of the design.... this is not the actual painting but rather copy...... I would had painted and would take commission on painting furniture but because of its time consuming, it would cost much more than for what I am selling for.... I wanted to offer a pretty vintage looking aged bed that is One of a kind but yet at reasonable price therefore; I choose to do this way.
I should post some time this painting and the framed one.... I just took a quick picture to add to my listing at ebay to show where the bed was made from.....
Roses are my favorite flowers and when summer comes i will share with you my 8 years old bed of flowers as well of my roses.... I love them... I have several mature bushes that I am very proud of it.... Painting flowers , specially roses are definitely my favorite subject to paint.

O.K., here I am again....in the quiet and stillness of the morning! The details of your little painting, Tita are extraordinary. The moose as well, his expressions are so realistic and marvelous...and I just noticed your little man on the left had side bar!!! I can't wait to see him in full speed!!!! Oh, the wonder and magic of it all. You know that you have inspired me to create a story about miniatures....I will have to consult with you about photos, but I think I might draw them. I am not sure. Please visit my blog when you get a moment....I missed you the last time and I wondered what I did wrong! I will be featuring you again soon with my miniature blog, so stay tuned! Love you ma chère, Nita

Hallo Patricia,

Dein Blog ist toll und ich werde bestimmt ab jetzt öfter vorbeischauen. Durch Deine Hände entstehen wunderbare Dinge.

Aber der Elchkopf gefällt mir besonders gut ... der sieht so realistisch aus. Ein wunderschönes Teil.

Liebe Grüße an Dich .... aus Deutschland
