Bad pics! Not much made really!

Tomorrow i'll try and take some better photos of what I've made so far this week. It's not much and still have lots to finish.
The pumpkin jars on the top shelf, left side as you are looking measure between 2cm and 3cm in total height. The round bottom pumpkin jars measure 2cm to 2.5cm in total height. The round pumpkin pots on the bottom shelf measure 1.4cm and 1.8cm in total height.
I really love them and wish i could take a nicer photo, but its dusk here so will have to wait for the morning.
The little labels i have made myself and hand painted. The pumpkin design is sooooo tiny and amazed i manged to make them. Some of the labels i have not finished painting so dont look to close.
The tiny little pumpkin candles measure around 1cm in width. They were so fiddly to make too.
The pumpkins with the cocktail sticks in are about to be coloured, should hopefully have that done this evening. They have already had 5 coats each of their base colour. Takes me an entire day to paint them in sequence, wait an hour or two then the next coat. Ive tried every way possible so i dont have to do all these coats, but they never look as good, so just have to be patient and get the look i like this way. The final part of the painting doesn't take quite as long and can do each one at a time u ntil complete. I love this part and seeing them come to life. I might make these into pots too, although undecided as yet. For the moment they are saying pots to me. They are a little bigger than the pots that are finished.

Hoping to have everything ready in a few days and will let you know when I'm going to list on etsy. There could be other items if i mage to finish them. Just not had time to make much.
All that's here i will be listing.

Will you be making anymore skele jars, I do hope so! Those tiny labels are the best, and hand painted too, what hard work you put into everything. Id love to just sit and watch you work one day!!
