Mealy Monsters

Sometimes, while I crochet or work on some other project, I like to watch Flickr slideshows. I do a search for a particular term, depending on my mood (landscape, nature, crochet, crafts, etc) and then turn the results on slideshow. Put on some music, pick up my crochet, and I'm entertained.

That's how I came across these beauties. I had to learn more about them, so I followed the links to the MealyMonster shop on Etsy. These hand-sculpted art dolls are just so unique and funny, and strangely cute as well; I just love their expressions! The artist also writes short, humorous stories about each creature in her descriptions; something I always appreciate.

Here are a few of my favorites, but be sure and check out her shop for more!

Marvin and his Jack 'o Lantern:

Marvin has a pumpkin friend, lately his friend had gotten a little rotten and his attitude, well let's just say, not so good.

Ace and his Dog:

Ace found a dog
he had been looking for a snack
would go good with a side of frog
and maybe a six pack

Poor puppy! I guess even monsters have to eat though... Thanks for reading and have a great day!
