Oh No another New House and The Sets for Ebay
Well you know i just cant resist a bargain and this fantastic tudor house was calling to me so just couldnt say no!
Its really well built, 3 floors, all lit, beautifully beamed, stairs etc, all ready for someone to move in!
I decided if I have a good witch house then surely I HAVE to have a bad witch one! Thankyou Michelle and Janice for inspiring me to make one as yours are both so fantastic I was itching to have my own!
Plus I have the excuse that I have 2 very large boxes of more spooky messy witch miniatures under the bed that just cant fit in the haunted house as thats heaving now! So this way I can instantly move things over to the new house.
I was also inspired by Jain Squires witch coven scene that she made for Kensington and decided this house would be perfect for that style project in larger form. So the lower floor will be an Inn style room with lots of witches gathering to discuss their potion making!
Next floor with be the witches living room and upstairs is a tiny bedroom, this opens by a small hatch in the centre of the top floor frontage, quite ingenious! You can see from the side view the lovely large chimney with all the hidden wiring. my only thing to do is change the wiring to a newer transformers system as the previous owner used only a 9 volt battery to light the wall, ceiling and fire lights! So I think all I have to do is chop off the old end fitments and attach the wires to a new transformer.........she says!!Will take some pics of the interior later when my witch arrives!
John is an angel I know for sure, as I straight away took it off to the conservatory but hes insisting it needs pride of place in the living room and has been himself trying to visualise what furniture can be moved around to make room for it! With all our houses we dont have a house in the main sitting room so I feel quite honoured that hes decided it needs one!
Well as my plans included quite a few witches for this house I have decided I need to start a savings plan for them! So starting this week i have listed some book stacks on ebay in the hope they will sell and give me some pennies to put towards my next doll on the wish list! These dont have harry Potter styling as HP is very copyright conscious and Ive had items lifted off ebay before for breach of using the potter name so just went for plains spell books for any witch or wizard ! I figured if I can make a few things and manage to sell them once a month then every quarter or so I should have enough to put in a special saving up jar just for dolls!
I have the houses first occupant on her way this week and cant wait to show her off. She is very special and the perfect doll for this wonderful house!
Wish me luck, oh and please ignore the car parts if you take a look at all the items selling, poor John, soon there will be little of his garage left to sell!!!
