New Ebay Listing!

We returned from the car show in Joseph...it rained all 3 days!! But I did find some inspiration there which gave me an idea for a new little Ghostie, so all was not lost!

I finally finished the little Ghostie I had been working on, and she is now listed on ebay. Check her out.http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180372296753

Her name is "Petite Antionette" I wanted to do something a bit different from the last little Ghosties, and since I love all things French, she begged me for a french hat that I created from black felt, old ribbon and a metallic letter "A" for her name! "Petite Antionette , in search of some joy, found a comforting friend in the Pumpkin Head boy"
I don't think he has much french in him...he's kinda got that Sleepy Hollow thing going on!

She is 12 1/2 tall, and pumpkin boy is just over 4" tall. He is removeable, but she prefers to hold him close as she doesn't want another "gingerbreadboy" incident!
Her clothes are a mix of vintage and new with my hand painted glass eyes.

It's been awhile since I've listed anything new on ebay. They seem to have a new picture format which I have to say I think "stinks". Instead of the pictures coming up in the body of the auction, they only show in the upper corner of the page...to see the different photos you have to click on the desired picture then click on enlarge which brings up a new page with one photo, you have to do this for each photo. If you don't click enlarge the photo stays pretty small. I left them a comment of what I thought of their new and improved ebay..I'm sure they won't like what I said..(just incase, I signed Miss "P"'s name)...naahaaa..haa..(thats a sneeky laugh, just payback for the dropping curse she placed while I was away)...ahhh Karma Ms P!!



Anyway...I hope you like my new little Ghostie!

When I get a chance I'll photograph my inspiration for my next little ghostie creation for you to see! I love it when inspiration hits....it's been few and far between lately!
Happy Hauntings, Gail

what's NOT to love?!? your ghosties ... sweet, lovable, haunted little ghosties ... steal my heart every time.

Kat said...

Wow, she's gorgeous. Pieces like yours make me wish I could sculpt better.

julietk said...

She is so fab, I wish I could afford her,
never mind at least I get to see them all. God luck with the auction (not that you need it)
There is still a way to incorporate lovely large photos into your listings if you use photobucket and html in your description box. Get in touch if you want better instructions I would be happy to help. regards Juliet
PS I made a little tiny doll this week
But I found it difficult as I chose to make her only 3 inches tall and so she does not have detailed hands etc.
