An Angler and his Bride

First things first, we have to have a body and that body has to have trousers, waistcoat, shirt and tie.
Next he gets his jacket and accessories.

He is an angler so he needs his fishing rod and if he has been lucky a fish on the end of his line. A few maggots crawling out of his pocket! and the compulsory camouflage hat.

Got a bit carried away with the bride and forgot to photograph her in stages. She is sitting on a tree stump.

Frying tonight! she is cooking the fish that her Groom has just caught. Need to hurry and get their eyes in before they have an accident!

This is the view from the back, I added flowers in her hair and she is sitting on a tree stump that is surrounded by grass and flowers.

Fish supper anyone! I think it is more of a skillet than a frying pan.

Here they are all done and ready for their tea, after they get married of course.

Hope you like them.

A Wedding Topper Cyclist

My consignment of clay arrived and this is the result. Hope you like it. Please feel free to leave any comments concerning anything on my blog. Thanks.
A wedding cake topper for the cyclists among you. I must admit this bicycle took a bit of doing, trying to keep it upright while it was cooking.

Next came his legs, feet and body.

Then his waistcoat, jacket and head.

He is holding onto the back of the bike (this also helped to steady things), he now has his hair and a flower in his lapel.


Now for his Bride, with her cocktail stick neck.

She has a bouquet of lavender and white roses and very small pearl buttons on the back of her dress. She also has the same flowers in her hair. Now all that is left to do is give them both eyes to see the world, hope you like them so far.

Now they can both see, shoes polished, tyres washed all ready for the big day.

Gazing up with adoration!

The back view, I only put a pedal on this side as the other was hidden by her dress. Hope you can see the pearl buttons down the back of her dress.

And this is Fido .................... waiting for a game of ball. Little accessories can be added into the mix.
