After My Own Heart... a W.I.P.

With paper clay applied to the head and a rusty heart hung
inside an old bed spring... sitting inside his cigar box body;
 this guy is taking on a life of his own!

He has some wood finials and bead for his arms 
and an inverted vintage metal pastry tin for a collar.
I have shortened his neck, changed the position and angle of the wings
as well as added a new door pull and vintage keyhole.
(he has a "twin brother" in the works... making use of both cigar boxes!)


  1. Isn't it great fun when it all starts coming together. He is a lot of fun!

    1. Thank you Penny for stopping by and taking a peek! I just posted a note on your most recent post... the "letter writing" doll is remarkable... and a tribute to my favorite poet: Emily Dickinson! Daryle

  2. There is some great fun going on here, Daryle.
