Nikki's Miniatures...

A couple of weeks ago, Nikki made some great little Skele Bottles and a few other bits.
I loved the Skele Bottle, even Ben wanted one. It reminded us of Jack The Pumpkin King, from Nightmare Before Christmas, which is one of Ben's favourite films.
So I sat very patiently at the PC, as Nikki listed all her little creations, in her Etsy Shop. If you've ever tried to win anything when Nikki's listing, you've got to be extremely quick on the buttons, or else poof its gone.
I really thought that I'd missed out on the Skele Bottle, as it didn't show to start with. But when I came to pay the invoice, there it was. I also managed to get a Candle Bottle, a Pumpkin Jar and a set of Nikki's candles. Nikki also kindly popped one of her Brooms in the parcel for me to finish. Thanks Nikki... xxx
I've got loads more Miniatures to show you, but need to take some photographs...

I had lots of 'poof and they were gone' moments! I'm sure microsoft are starting to fear Nikki's listing nights, the networks must go crazy with everybody hitting enter at the same time lol. I did manage to get a candle bottle though and Nikki kindly sent a broom. I also managed to get 2 things this time :0)Your skele bottle is terrific :)

Nikki's work is also amazing and extremely well crafted! I am so glad that you managed to buy the pieces that you wanted. I wanted and bought a skele bottle myself and I secretly wanted one with its mouth more open (some where more closed) and low and behold I received one I wanted!! Nikki must have read my mind! lol

I agree that you do have to move at warp speed to be able to acquire any of her work. Don't ask me how, but I managed to be the first buyer for all her multiples.

I think as Nikki's fan based increases her work will be ever harder to acquire, but hopefully by then I might have completed my own projects! lol :o))

I look forward to seeing more of your mini's!

I hope to reply to your email later today too!

I love her pumpkin guys! It's the pitts being on a budget, LOL

You sure must have lucky fingers - or fast ones? Anyway, congratulations on your wonderful items. I was able to grab me a skele bottle, too - it's adorable. It's great to have something so gorgeous for the project's foreground, maybe the own minis in the background are outlighted by its glory (lol).

Greetings

I really like the skele-bottle but my all time favorites are the drippy candles with faces. You did very well acquiring your things, Deb. My fingers are not so nimble, apparently, as I was not very successful this time around. There will always be a demand for Nikki's work because it is exquisitely made and always something new.

They are all great Debs but the skelebottle is my fave.

Have fun housing all your goodies Debbie, Kate xxx

Cool creations from Nikki, I never win anything my button finger is too slow ha ha! I have a wonderful cooker Nikki made many moons ago and it's still my favourite miniature.
