The Recipe for a Monster Day Out!

Market Stall - CrawCrafts BeastiesHere at Beastie Towers we like nothing better than heading out together for a fun day at one of our local markets. And even though the weather here was less than stellar on Saturday morning, we still managed to have a good time at the Ha’Penny market – it’s definitely worth a look if you ever find yourself in Dublin!

A few of our group even went home with new human friends – first to go was Cookie Beastie…

Many of the other Beasties who ventured off to pastures new have featured on the BeastieBlog before. But one of my recent additions found a new home too! It’s been a while since I last made a Chef Beastie – perhaps two years – so I really enjoyed cracking out my old templates and making some subtle adjustments to the design. The basic formula is the same – Chef Beasties always need a classic tall white chef’s hat and an apron…

I have more new Beasties for you to meet, but I’m going to save ’em for next week. In the meantime, Paddy and Plunkett will be back to entertain you with more travellers’ tales on Friday. See you then!

  1. Perhaps I’ve asked this before, but….what do you call a crowd of Beasties? Is it a Giggle of Beasties? or a Mischief? Anyone out there have any ideas?

    1. Heehee, good question! I do have a nerdy enthusiasm for collective nouns! I don’t have an official one picked out yet, but I rather like “a mischief of Beasties”. Any other suggestions, anybody? πŸ˜€

  2. Yay! I’m so glad some Beasties found new homes! And Chef Beastie is so charming, although now I’m imagining a tall one with curly hair – Julia Child Beastie. Love your display, by the way.

    1. Why thank you! And a Julia Child Beastie, you say? I’ve just spent a fun couple of minutes looking at photos of the lady herself… I’d certainly heard of her, but I had no idea she was such a character! I reckon her Beastie counterpart would look great with a chicken and a tenderising mallet…

    1. Thank you! I do love making teeny accessories πŸ˜€ That market is definitely worth checking out if you’re in the city centre on Saturdays, too… They have a great mix of crafts and vintage!

    1. Heehee! Yes, a mischief of Beasties seems to have pulled into the lead. And we did have a great time at the market… I don’t know how I managed to get to August without doing one, but it was good to be back!
