My Amazing Hatter Bottles


Still on the Alice Project, a while ago I asked the talented Victoria http://darksquirrelminiatures.blogspot.com/ to make me some bottles for my Mad Hatter Dressing table for my room box.
I found a large dressing table that Id bought ages ago on Ebay with an ornate mirror ideal for the purpose.
It was plain brown so I have detailed it in gold and added some heart embellishments. Not finished yet, so that is to come, but I wanted to show off the bottles.




In the movie the table is stacked with various styles , shapes and sizes of bottles, presumably where the Red Queen sits to be titavated and coiffed! You can just see the dressing table in the left of this movie still.



I will add some other bits like lipsticks, varnish, her mad eyeshadow colours and hair accessories and stack the drawers of the table with laces and other materials.

Victoria made some really spectacular designs of bottles I think you'll agree! I love the very tall ones with hearts the best but they are all fantastic! I also said that I really wanted a powder puff and lo and behold the next day Victoria had made me on of those too which is very cool, complete with red velvet puff!



A Massive thankyou as I love them all, and cant wait to fill the table with them and show them all off in their new home. The bottlea are beautifully made as they always are, and so different!

Hoping to finish it soon, now the Migraines gone I can begin to look at tiny things again!
Thankyou for allyour get well wishes, to be honest until I have the surgery and sort out all my hormones I get them most months but seem to be getting worse and affecting my minis, .....and that really will not do!!

Also just to say Lola has been busy today putting a new post up but her blog dosnt appear to be showing its update in dashboard so please pop over to see her and her new Brambley purchases on http://princeslolasminiaturediary.blogspot.com/
She'd love to see you after such a long time!

Beautiful! Victoria is, far and away, the most prolific bottle maker I have ever seen. And each one is different and all very cool.

Your Alice project is going to be spectacular, Kate!
