A Candy Toyland!

I told you I was like a bus...nothing for ages & then 2 posts in one night..there really is no hope for me!
I was asked quite some time ago now...I'm too embarrassed to tell you just how long ago it was, suffice to say that it was pre-Christmas :-)) to create a candy toyland. Ideas weren't just slow in coming, they were just not there for weeks! Out of the blue one day I just decided that it was to take the form of a giant candy teacup & saucer & at last the piece evolved from that thought! I can only hope that my customer is happy with it as I'd hate to have to re-think the concept...that could take me another few months!!









The little candy train & track seemed to take forever to do & I don't think I'll be doing another tiny helter skelter again, candy or not! Overall the saucer measures just over an inch & a half & to the top of the helter skelter an inch & a half, so you can imagine how small the little train is!!
