You are very welcome. The guitar was from the same line of ornaments, so you know where it might be the next time. With the deer head, I found that removing the hook leaves a bit of a hole, which was easily obscured by a few dabs of paint (I used several types of Vallejo brown, most successfully German Black Brown).

These included a delightfully soft and squeezable pig from Wildlife Wow, a rattlesnake from Mojo, dagger- and light-shaped charms from Fairy Tale, and container- and cup shaped charms from Charm Me (the Fairy Tale and Charm Me lines were on 50% off sale).



Although probably too small for a full-grown in sixth scale, the pig will make do nicely for a young/growing specimen.



Inspired by a friend's choice of name for his pig in his youth, I am naming this one Nicodemus.



The lighting on the following photo doesn't work very well for illustration purposes (I didn't want it casting shadows on the sky and sea background), but while rather diminutive, the Charm Me charms work well as small trinkets (see if you can find them). This is true for the two containers (one of them is a miniature treasure chest) with openable lids that you can close using a clasp in one case and a magnet in the other, and for the tiny cup, which could be a little goblet. By the way, the corked bottle with a scroll message and the treasure chest are also from Hobby Lobby, in a previous haul. The dagger, while a bit overly ornate, works well in this scale. And I don't know that rattlesnakes frequent the beach, but they won't after this encounter.



I didn't have much to use the light with, except maybe something like this (again, showing the treasure chest)...



So... good haul?

I LOVEEEE that pig!!!! although not sure how i would find one? how much was it please?

Thanks, teamweapon! Glad you liked it. The squishy animals (never figured out the exact make or brand, because the most obvious part of the labeling is "Wildlife Wow!," but may actually be National Geographic; it is NOT Mojo, which are smaller scale and harder plastic) are usually around $15. I have never seen them discounted, although someone (MerylAkiba?) may have indicated just that, and you could always print out a 40% off coupon before heading into the store.

But this is a better deal, on their website:
https://www.hobbylobby.com/Clearance/Clearance---Crafts-Hobbies/Clearance---Hobbies/Pig/p/80853993

For the original higher price, you can apparently also find it on amazon (here you can compare it to the other critters they've made, which are not all carried by specific Hobby Lobby stores):
https://www.amazon.com/National-Geographic-Wildlife-Wow-Allosaurus/dp/B07BNXXBZF?th=1

Hope this helps.

Man, that pig cracks me up. I always love the accompanying pictures. Hell of a good haul.

A few weeks ago when I searching everywhere (eBay, internet search) for 1/6 scale floor jacks or something that I could use for a project that I'm
working on (Cindy's garage) except for 1/10 scale floor jacks and I couldn't find anything so I decided to look around Hobby Lobby and I almost
gave up there too until went to the Christmas area and found a Eiffel Tower Ornament to customize.

Nice. That is by far the most creative use of an Eiffel tower I could imagine.
