I finally found some help! Meet Murph....

Well, it's been a long and hard search but I finally found some help!!! See... I don't have any dolls yet to help me size and proportion and I don't want to just going buying tiny people willy nilly! So I have been searching and searching and searching...... and searching for the perfect sized wooden model to help me with my minis. Why did this search take so long? Because the only sizes I could find in any store was 4 1/2", 8" and 12" tall!! And none of those help!!!

But anyway... I would like you to meet Murphy (Murph for short). He's a perfect 5 3/4" tall! He has come to help me with both houses so you will see him here (The Addams Family Mansion) and also at Bentley Manor.

Here you can see him meeting Thing. Thing wasn't sure at first but I think it'll be fine. Thing's a great hand model but I needed someone with a whole body to give me some perspective on the Mansion :)

Also, I'll be away from the computer this weekend as it is Independence Day weekend! and I will be with family celebrating! I didn't know Canada Day and Independence Day was so close together - how fantastic! I hope everyone is having a great time celebrating their country :)

  5. He is brilliant! I've seen those small wooden guys and thought I should pick one up! I know exactly what you mean about about size and proportion - I bought a naked, bald Heidi Ott doll (Manny) for the same reason!

  7. OH sorry - duh. Murph came from Barnes and Noble Bookstore of all places. They had one in the store near me and you can also buy them at their online store!! His bend-ability is not always the best but he works :)
