Just finished this up, a lot of work but worth it :) I started with a Chrysnbon kit, built it and painted it out in a Halloween theme. I added a trick or treat flag banner, built a tiny wire tree, painted it black and silver, added leaves that I painted to look dry and dead. I added lollipops set in ice cream scoop holders, ghost pops. I have a tall glass drink dispenser and punch cups, pumpkin cakes, eyeball cookies, toffee apples, parfait cup display, ghost candy bowl filled with candy, a partially unwrapped chocolate bar. Underneath are Halloween donuts, a cake, and a bottle of candies. That's about it, now available in my etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/listing/479482595/dollhouse-miniature-halloween-witch
Hello everyone! It's been such a long time since I've blogged that I thought I might pop in and show some projects :)
I've had some requests to make another witch Bath set in my store, and I haven't had a set in stock for so long that I always passed. Recently I found a miniature store within driving distance and I picked up another set. So I made another which bath set but with different accessories-
A new witch fireplace in an entirely new style, unique from most others due to being a bit monochrome in the color scheme. Black, white, grey, and a hint of the palest green is what I've done on this one. I like it, it's fun :)
Available in my etsy store for immediate sale or layaway.
Hello everyone how have you all been? Good hopefully. I just wanted to let everyone know that I just listed a couple new miniatures for sale in my etsy store. Here they are:
So I have made a fairy pram carriage scene as well as a fairy floor chest surrounded by a nature base with plants. I've gotten a lot of messages requesting more fairy pieces and have finally gotten around to doing it. Life is busy around here and I don't often get time to work on minis as much. Summer with the kids home, you know how it goes. Also, we have recently adopted three lovely parrots who are as needy as any young child and my attention has also been on them. This is Sailor, our greenwing macaw:
She loves to go shopping with us in stores that allow pets. And this is Mako who is half her size, he's a goffins cockatoo with a few problems from a bad life prior to coming home with us
This is Tazzy who is a green cheek conure and he's my little shoulder bird.
Parrots are a ton of work, they have special dietary needs like a variety of fresh vegetables and fruits chopped for them daily, as well as grains, legumes and tree nuts given every day and bird seed is not good for them. Sort of like us eating cheeseburgers every day instead of healthier options. They die much sooner on an all seed diet. I also provide them a healthy high quality pellet food option daily like roudybush or zupreme brands. My macaw will live 80 years, outlive us and go to my son who is happy to take her. Please research well in advance if you ever take home a bird. They have special needs and can be very messy. I clean up after them every single day so be prepared for that if you decide to get one. I have to use all natural cleaners because regular are toxic to birds. Even Teflon cooking pans are toxic to them so we had to switch to ceramic and stainless steel. So much work but so worth it, they really added some fun to our lives.
Hey everyone, I have a couple new miniatures I haven't posted yet so I wanted to share them with you. I have a new theme tree done and only one more planned for the rest of this year. This one that's done is a sewing witch tree similar to one my MIL Sherry made years ago. I never made one and I had one mini sewing machine left so I figured I'd make one too. Here it is:
Description: Even witches need a holiday that doesn't involve tricks or treats! This tree belongs to a crafty little witch, who knows how to turn a stitch :) She likes her trees black, her hats pointing and droopy and tricked out fancy, her potions nefarious, and her sewing is divine! What a woman! This tree reflects her personal style. Topped with a jaunty leather witch hat with a tiny owl clutching onto the side while a snowy owl perches below on the tree, the rest of the tree is covered in tiny brooms, potions, candles dripping wax, all sorts of witchy goodness. Underneath the tree sits an antique singer-style sewing machine working away with a pile of tiny sewing patterns for various witch outfits sitting around it. Sewing baskets, a witch boot pin cushion with needles, a bubbling cauldron with oozing green potion, a cute little broom decorate the base of the tree on a witchy tree skirt. This tree is completely tricked out and hand-crafted from top to bottom. Amazing!
