Sam and Dave

Not this Sam and Dave, however I could listen to this Sam and Dave for the afternoon while working on my dolls, no problem there.  Yes these links will and do, date me. But I can guarantee there are a bunch of you who won’t be able to help yourselves and be transported back in time to the 60’s, come on, admit it…;o)

I have no idea why I named these Jesters Sam and Dave, but I do love the oldies when music was music. Perhaps I was channelling them just a little. Sam in this case is the bigger Jester, and sorry Dave, you kind of got cheated on the whole body thing. I made this Jester back in 2010 and loved it so much then, I knew eventually I would make another version of it.

So here we are in 2015 with this new Jester and I think he/they turned out so good, every time I look at the pictures or walk past them in the other room, I can’t help but look. The fabrics just make them pop.

A little close up of Sam and then Dave. My friend and I went over to Salt Spring Island a couple of weeks ago and I came back with the large size turquoise beads around Sam’s legs and Dave’s head.

I tried to go easy on the embellishments, but of course they screamed at me to loosen the reins a bit, so I did. They jingle like crazy, they sparkle  and shine.  There are beaded trims and shiny ones too, and all together they make beautiful music.

I have pictures of 3 more Jesters to post very soon, and then one more Jester themed part of my display, so do come again and see what’s jingling over here.
