I have finished one more Red "Skelly"ton Ornie. I hope to do one or two more before listing them. This one is of course Freddy Freeloader
I used air-dry clay to creat his hand-held cigar, an accessory he could not be without!

This is an Elf ghost...She showed up today. She's a pretty little thing...I don't know what her story is....But Elves Do NOT Live Forever.....
When I began this little lady, I had a request for a special ornie who might be a sister to a past creation "Dreadful Diva Diane". I was so excited to be honored with such a request! I hadn't quite come up with her name and so anxious to show her to my customer I posted her here on my blog. Well, I am proud to announce her name was chosen by my new Dear friend Carole...The ornie is now known as "ELFvira" IS that not just PERFECT! I wish I had thought of it!....

My new Skelly Ornie...."RED" Skellyton!
Red Skeleton has always been a favorite of mine. He was such a wonderful comedian. He was an Artist, a published
composer and a kind and gracious man. He was born in Vincennes Indiana, and so was I!
From time to time he would return to his hometown and I was lucky enough to meet him.
I plan to create some little skelly ornaments inspired by his MANY funny characters he was so well-known and loved for through the years.
Red Skelton (July 18, 1913 - September 17, 1997)
"If some day you’re not feeling well, you should remember some little thing I have said or done and if it brings a smile to your face or a chuckle to your heart then my purpose as a clown has been fulfilled."—Red Skelton
In following posts I will include more information I find in researching the man and his story.
I know you remember how he closed every program...
"Good-night, and May God Bless"

Poor Little Miss Muffet was a VICTIM afterall......
The poem I revised reads...
Little Miss Muffett
Sat On her Tuffett
Eating her Curds and Whey
Along came a Spider
That decided to BITE her
Poor Miss Muffet DIED
The Next Day!
She still holds on
To her Curds and Whey
But on a Leash beside her
She Keeps THAT Black Spider
SO That He Can NEVER
She was sold and is on her way to her new home.

I am anxiously awaiting Tim Burtons new film 9 !!!! It opens of course 9/09/09.
"When 9 first comes to life, he finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world. The human race is dead and gone, and it is only by chance that he discovers a small community of others like him taking refuge from fearsome machines that roam the earth intent on their extinction. Despite being the neophyte of the group, 9 convinces the others that hiding will do them no good. They must take the offensive if they are to survive, and they must discover why the machines want to destroy them in the first place. As they’ll soon come to learn, the very future of civilization may depend on them.”

Her story was inspired by the children transported by train from the streets of New York City to the farms in the Midwest. Between 1854 and 1929 over 200,000 orphans rode those trains. So sad but true. You can read Rose's story on Ebay

Her Name is Dreadful Diva Diane
I wrote her a poem for Ebay
She appeared this morning to my surprise
With dark violet shadows on her eyes
And Red lips waiting for a kiss.
She is Pretty Patty's Older Sis.
I have to tell you, she isn't nice.
I have asked her to leave at least twice.
She told me, I Am Here To Stay
So please make an offer,
So I can send her AWAY
ok,ok, I know...I am NOT a poet....be kind...I had to say something about her.
