Horsing Around (Copycat Challenge #10)
All the Pretty Horses Hush-a-bye don't you cry, Go to sleep-y, little baby. When you wake you shall have All the pretty little horses. Blacks and bays, dapple grays, Coach and six white horses. Hush-a-bye don't you cry, Go to sleep-y, little baby. This lullaby was the inspiration for Number Ten in the Copycat Challenge/Blog Project based upon the book by Vicki Haninger. This time I selected the Petite Pony on pages 18 and 19. Why? Because I could turn the pony into ponies - and hopefully, pretty ones at that! Sorry, though, no blacks and bays or dapple grays in this pack of horses due to the nature of the green blanket I'm using for all the CC projects! And the six "white" horses are only three in number - with the "coach" being a tiny pink lampshade I found at the thrift store. The pretty part will have to be all the crystal beads I used to hang on the fishline. What on earth is this project with horses, a lampshade and beads, you might ask? Why, it's a.... ...m-o-b-i-l-e for Miss Ellie's Nursery Nook! It hangs on the back side of the folded screen facing her vintage crib. This is what it looks like from the room side. And surely you recognize the happy man holding the mobile recipient?
