I am so excited for your possible new venture. In many ways it completes the circle. You started out with dolls (although different from the direction your going now) and are now returning to dolls. I think it's a perfect fit. I sent you another link via FB messenger, and I sent you a butt load of various boards and pins via Pinterest.
The link above (posted by Family Haunter) is what I followed. The link leads you to a wonderful tut by Evil Bob. He is a member here and IMHO is the definitive horse drawn hearse King!!!! He has built two almost museum quality hearses. I made my hearse this past year and borrowed elements from many of the hearses made by our members over the years. The link that scatterbrains posted is also really helpful. Additionally if you do an advanced search on horse hearses it will show you a bunch of...
Very nice work. Great idea cutting a dowel for bolts!!!!!! (Said as I face-palm myself.) In the past I have used wooden hole plugs but they aren't ideal. It's hard to affix them and because they are slightly domed they get knocked off easily. Nice job with your rust texture too.

Not much going on here, spooky or otherwise. The hubby and I just celebrated our 33rd anniversary. He went on a duck hunting trip with friends. Lol. I've been busy packing up the last remnants of Christmas and running one of my daughters to various medical tests. She's been sick with stomach problems since the end of summer. So far no answers. The poor little thing is about 4'10 and 98 lbs soaking wet. How about with you?
Well mon cher you guys did it again!!!!! You and lewlew just keep setting the bar higher and higher. I was beginning to wonder if you were ever gonna post your pics, and boy were they worth the wait! There is just so much I love that I couldn't possibly single out just on thing. Don't be surprised if you see a lot of your fantastic ideas showing up in one of my haunts! ;) :D
