Heads, Hats and Bats... in that order...

Ive always fancied painting a head... today was the day...
The beginning was not good! A bald lump of plastic... that can never be good to start anything with!
I maybe shouldnt have sponged on gold paint but I fancied a smidge of sparkle... I was aiming for patchy, mottled, fairy-ishness... but Im not sure...
I carried on regardless, like I always do... adding a little bit of the woods as I went... 
I quite like the overall effect!
And because she was in fact painted to model hats... heres a new knitted beret for the shop.
Complete with arial... in case you get lost. You can find it in the Fairysteps shop here.  
And so onto the 'batty' bit of the post. I know... why on earth does this woman keep kidnapping bats and taking pictures of them???? Are you looking at that pretty little face???
This little beauty blew across the floor of the yard as I sat sipping 4 oclock tea. I thought it was a fallen leaf, thought twice, remembered the fact that we had 4 phsycopathic cats and rushed out to rescue. I whipped my skirt off (dont worry I was wearing a petticoat) and carefully rescued said bat from almost certain death.
I think its a Pippestrelle. Apparently they are small enough to fit in a matchbox (who on earth tried that?). I have placed my enormous hand next to this little piece of perfection from Mother Nature for you to see how tiny she is...


What on earths coming next?


Hope all had a good start to the week!
