Props For The Medieval Day..

Gosh two postings in one day...
We've just been up to the Riding School to drop Harry and some Raffle Prizes off and I remembered to take my camera.
The first photograph is of the shields that I've been cutting out for weeks, with their base coats, there's a big box of them as well, which you can't see.
The second photograph is of Ebony, she is the Horse that Harry rides and will be riding on the day. I only noticed while taking her photo that her white bit on her face looks like a shield. Donna said I'm seeing shields everywhere!..
The next photo is of the jump that we painted yesterday, the piece laying on the floor, fits across the middle, so that it can be made higher or lowered. Just need to paint the brick work in now. The next photo is of more shields with crossed swords, this is also another jump.
Then we have the stocks, the holes have been lined with pipe insulation, so that no one gets splinters in their necks. The last three photographs show the Guillotine, Harry agreed to model it for us. Well its one why to hold him down and cut his hair..LOL
Our Post Lady has been and mine and Mick's outfits have arrived.. I'll get modelling and show you later...

It all looks so fab! You are going to have the best time- all the work will be worth it. The picture of Harry modeling for us is perfect- but I agree- you do need a basket for his head!

You put me to shame all the things you get done. It is great to come to your blog and see what you are up to and then I feel tired for some strange reason. Lol.
Ebony is lovely. I love seeing your pictures of horses... Magical.
Medieval day how exciting can't wait to see more. Mini hugs!

Jayne, Harry was laughing laying in the stocks. Wish I'd had a pair of scissors so I could have cut his hair.

Oranges and lemons says the bells of..... here comes the chopper to chop off your head!
Lovely photos, glad the chopper bit was screwed up. Should have still chopped his hair... lol.
Lovely setting too and looks like it will be a great day!
I agree and the horse does have a shield on his head. Maybe paint on it with face paints a little pattern.
I really am looking forward to the outifit part. Have you tried it all on yet?
Off to visit your earlier post.

You could make a basket with small planks of wood glued around a circle wooden base, and then some leather straps wound around the top and bottom. It wouldn't take long to make.
Or even made from thin tree branches and wound around with string.
