A Fairytale Frog and a Storybook SnipPet Rabbit~~

I just completed a Frog Prince and a White Rabbit for the PFATT Marketplace update this Friday, April 10. Be sure to visit the site and check out all of the wonderful offerings by many unique artists!

Doesn't everyone need a Frog Prince in their life???! I like the idea of this fine little fellow smiling up at someone from their dressing table each day. I thought he'd be a sweet reminder (in these tough times) that happy endings ARE possible. I can also see him sitting on a bookshelf among some favorite fairytale books. I hand sculpted his head and golden crown with paperclay, attached him to a wooden spool and painted the entire piece with acrylics. He is decorated with tiny vintage flowers, itty bitty antique buttons and a paper butterfly. He measure about 4 1/2" tall. I was having fun taking photos of him in front of an illustrated children's book, The Thistle Princess, that i adore. The illustrations are incredibly enchanting and beautiful.





I have been dying to create a little White Rabbit, so I finally did it. I hand sculpted his head with paperclay and added it to a wooden goose egg. His ruffled collar was hand sewn with cotton ribbon. He measures about 6" tall. I think this one is just a sweet and simple SnipPet :)!



Don't forget to enter my blog giveaway below!! And please visit the Pfatt site on Friday if you are interested in giving either of these little guys a good home :).
