Friendship and Steampunk

Monday is here again and that means Every Inchie Monday has a new challenge-well hopefully it has as I am scheduling this post

The subject this time is 'friendship' and I have made 2 inchies. one from 1948 and the other from 2005



The one of the left was taken when me and my best friend were 6 years old and had been chosen to dance for a May day celebration--we look less than happy.

The second one is us in 2005 still friends even though I live well North and she lives well South . We meet somewhere for a few days and pretend we are schoolgirls once again. This was on a trip to Nottingham where we had an amazing time exploring so many things in the City. We had on the 'hats' as we were going down under the city to explore the caves. It is an amazing trip with lots of history so if you are ever in Nottingham be sure to go there--and to the lace museum--and the law courts---and the church---- and the wonderful park with a museum--and so much more.

The next challenge is at Anything but a Card and the theme this time is Steampunk. I have been thinking about  making another Steam punk character for a while now so that I can continue my story about my other characters.

This is the one I have made for this challenge and so far he is just called the Magician. I think he is going to be rather sinister!.

All of my characters up to now have been loosely based on the ones that are in the wonderful Steampunk Softies book by Sarah Skeate and Nicola Tedman.


Hope your day is going well

Love Chrissie x

Fabulous inchies, with a lovely story. My friend came to stay with us last week, and we have known each other for 66 years, since we stared at each other through the garden gate.
Love the steampunk as well.

Silence of the lambs! Your magician looks supercool Chrissie, would make a fine adornment for Halloween, too, I think! And your inchies are just lovely, what a wonderful tribute to friendship! Hugs, Ira x
