A very friendly witch and bearcabinminiatures giveaway!!!

This could be grandma Lucy dressed like a very elegant witch for Halloween or a real very friendly witch who likes a graceful style, who knows... ;-)

Ok, but to make her not look too elegant ;-) I have made her a simple black scarf for her shoulders, which isn't made perfect at the seams!
The necklace in black and orange is bought!

I've made this witch hat from hat straw, inspired by Kat the hat lady's fantastic hats! The hatpins are made from a KIT...
(I've got some awesome original hats from Kat the hat lady, will show them some other time here on the blog)

I bought this wonderful doll some time ago from a very talented artist who sadly doesn't make dolls anymore! I got it with a very fine hand painted face and assembled as you can see it in the picture above. I think it's made of a casting pattern of a Cynthia Howe model! She has a really beautiful face... and I tried to make her a witchy dress out of black and purple fabric with black lace without any pattern, so I had not much experience with sewing clothes and for one of my first attempts I'm very happy with the result...

Also wanted to make a wig of red hair, but wasn't sure, because I know somewhere I have grey hair and maybe that fits better!?!

And now: the wonderful GIVEAWAY from BEARCABINMINIATURES
Please visit their blog for further information!

Happy Halloween :-)

A new project

I decided to build a wooden box for a shop. I'm not quite sure of what it will be, maybe a perfumery, so I also started to make little perfume bottles, but I'm also thinking of a shop for sewing utensils or maybe a boutique where you can also buy jewelry...I don't know, we'll see!

I designed this simple box by myself and bought the wooden boards for it in a home improvement store where they also cut the boards into the right size.

I think the wallpaper is not convenient, liked it so much when I saw the colours and images, but I think it's not fitting for the shop...
