Well, we didnt win Marvin, Debie's wonderful Mad Scientist :-( , but its Johns fault cos he promised to get us home from a friends BBQ in time for me to get the children to bed and bid, but at 8.00 we were still sipping wine so by the time we got in , it was all a mad rush to get wingy tired children to bed and try and get a bid in but it was not to be!! Still it may be a while until John can begin the laboratory anyway as I have been a very naughty girl and bought another project!!!
I had my eye on this little house on ebay and could visualise it done with paperclay walls and roof, and inside a Witches kitchen with cauldron in the fireplace, old rusty oven, and small bedroom above. Ive always wanted a witchy bedroom, after i saw a wonderful bed that Nikki sold on ebay over a year ago now. I want it very rustic, lovely materials on the bed.
I love the little chalet style window in the bedroom. I will probably put it on a turntable to show it off from all angles.
I won this before we went out, so was a happy bunny, just sad to miss out on Marvin but no doubt hes gone to a good home and I will be nagging Debie to make another mad scientist once the project gets started!! In the mean time, I think the search will be on for the ideal witch for this little house. I can picture a quite homely plump witch, not too ugly or wicked!
It should arrive in a few days, then I can decide on the decor etc. Think Ill follow some of the designs in my 'Petite properties' books to make some furniture for it.
Yes I know I know, another project to get in the way of finishing the others, but I get bored easily and find a break from each makes me more enthusiastic in the long run!
Have a great week xx
