They're creepy and they're kooky,
mysterious and spooky
They're all together ooky,
the Addams Family
Their house is a museum,
when people come to see-em
They really are a scre-um
the Addams Family
Neat, sweet, petite
So get a witch's shawl on,
a broomstick you can crawl on
We're going to make a call on
the Addams Family
This is for those of you who had the Addams Family theme song stuck in your head after seeing Wednesday since it may have started to fade or go away completely. I have had the stupid song running around in my head for weeks now and I can't seem to get it out of there. Maybe now that I've finished Pugsley it will fade away.
I started Pugsley weeks ago but have had so many other things going on he didn't get completed as quickly as I wanted him to. I'm really pleased with the way he turned out considering that when I started the head I was sculpting it for another doll I was making. Remember Lula? Well this was the second head I started on for her because I thought the first one and the one I actually went with might be too small for all that personality.
Since I hate wasting anything it's a good thing that with some clever rework I was able to turn what was supposed to be Lula into this cute little fellow.
How about smiling for the camera Pugsley?
That's much better.
Pugsley with his sister Wednesday. They really are a somber looking pair aren't they?
Pugsley doing his "I could care less" pose.
For siblings they really don't look that much alike. Where Wednesday is thin with black hair and very pale complexion, Pugsley is ruggedly built with brown hair although he too has a very pale complexion. They don't seem to like the sun all that much which is a plus if they stay here.
I have now made four sets of siblings since last August starting with Bellamine and Bartholomew and ending with Wednesday and Pugsley. Besides the six shown below there were the two little red headed sisters that I made for St. Paddy's Day. I wouldn't be mentioning this except that as I said before, I'm not a doll maker.
From left to right we have Dory, Pugsley, Bellamine, Wednesday, Donner and Bartholomew.
Wednesday and Pugsley seem to be fitting in very well. The other kids all seem to be quite taken with them.
Note the two below hanging on to every word.
Donner seems to be very fond of Wednesday and can't seem to get enough of that sweet smile of hers.
Bellamine and Dory get all giggly when Pugsley comes into a room and Dory, Wendy and Bellamine all seem to be emulating Wednesday. I'm not sure what to think about that.
I'm keeping busy trying to get bodies made for the heads I started in March. I have made some progress. Besides what I've shown you in my most recent posts there are three Santa Claus figures on the drying racks that have only a bit more work to be done on them before they're ready to be painted. I also have two sets of arms that I painted this morning that are drying and will be fastened onto the dolls that I went shopping for dress fabric for this week. Then there are a few more heads that are nearly ready to be painted and if I ever get patterns made for their bodies I'll have a trio of aliens from outer space to show you. That should be fun.... I hope.
We are still not having the sunshine and warm temperatures that my poor garden would like. Getting one day here and there doesn't seem to be doing it.
The lack of warm weather and sunshine aren't the only things that are keeping my garden from flourishing. We've also been getting visitors who seem to like young tender shoots. I just now caught this culprit sneaking into the side yard. Little bugger did a belly crawl right under the fence.
It's okay, if you want to eat those, it'll save me the trouble of pulling them.
Now, these on the other hand are beans so stay away from them. Okay?
and stay away from anything you see growing in the planters.
Didn't I just say to stay out of the planters? With those big ears you'd think you'd be able to hear better or are you just pretending not to hear me? All right, shoo, get out of there. Hey listen up bunny, I said get out of there!
This is the first I've seen of this fella but for the past week I have been wondering what was happening to my seedlings. Between the squirrels digging in the planters and this little one helping himself to anything that looks good to him, things have been disappearing. I'm sure the rabbit is a pet that has gotten out. Hope someone comes looking for him before all of my beans and lettuces are gone.
Enjoy your weekend and as always, thanks for stopping by.
