Christmas gift of the week

Christmas making continues this week as Ramona is left twiddling her thumbs for the now late baby (why are guys always late?) A bit more handpainted wood - nice to not have every gift textile based for once! Up top is a roly poly doll for a little glamour girl called Poppy - so it should have been painted red, doh! nevermind. when you tip the doll there is a lovely deep bell sound...
The Pig money box is for an excellent grown up artist who's porky illustrations ended up gracing the pages of book this year (very exciting). Both gifts have been waxed rather than varnished. The furniture wax dries very hard, smells nice and gives the wood a nice sheen.
