The Witch

Hello everyone :) I have done a little more to my Witch house. I have put some moss on the roof not sure if it is enough or does it need more?
See my cats on the window :D they are Halloween stickers I thought they looked cool on the window. 

I have also put these pictures on this window. Painting on windows or anything much is a skill I don't have lol so I put tattoos that I found.

Here is another window done the same way.  I am not finished with the windows yet. 

Here is a view of one of the rooms. 
This will be were the wizard does his research and makes his potions. The walls are contact paper and the floor is a sheet of doll house tiles that I dirtied :D 
Now for who lives here this is Elfvera.

She lives in the upstairs and works downstairs in the cottage. Her Grandfather is the Wizard that works in the lab. She sells his potions in the other room Elfvera also has the " sight "so as well as selling potions she reads people's fortune she is getting quite famous for this :)) as you might have guessed from her name she has elfin blood in her. Her other Grandfather (from her dads side) is a wood elf. She gets her great love of trees and nature from him.
I don't have a wizard I am not sure if I ever will. This doll I found in a charity shop she was one of those holiday dolls dressed in traditional costume I have no idea where from. I removed her clothes and undid her hair (it was tied up) I knit her silver dress and stuck the tiny bats on it. Her hat was also a Halloween ornament that I covered in a black and gold fabric.
I have LOTS more to do to this house.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my house as much as I am enjoying doing it :)
Have a wonderful weekend.
Warm Hugs to all my friends.

Your house is coming along beautifully! I love the front door, and I think Elfvera is such a clever name. I enjoyed reading your post - I can tell that you're having lots of fun!

I LOVE what you're doing to your house, Maria, and I can really feel your excitement with this project. Your "converted" witch, Elfvera, was a great find. Love all the bats around too. So much fun! xo Jennifer

I can see this is going to be one scary place!

Me encantan los gatos en la ventana! Y me encanta el suelo de la habitación de las pócimas. La bruja es adorable y su nombre maravilloso! :) Saber de ella y de su familia es estupendo. Ya empiezo a sentir que ella es mi bruja también, empiezo a imaginar el interior de la casa, sus pucheros y tarros de pócimas... Mmmm... Genial!

I can't wait to follow progress on this build. I like that Elfvera loves nature and I can't wait to see the wizard's room.

Un bonito trabajo, las brujas buenas son adorables y este se ve que es de esas y su casita perfecta.
El musgo del tejado lo veo muy bien, no se si quedaría mejor con algo más pero puedes probar.
Un abrazo y felíz fin de semana.

Hi! Elfvera has such lovely - witchy dress and hat!
The cats look gorgeous in the windows and so is the dragon.
Love the whole House!
Great work!

It's a great work Maria, I love the roof. Your witch is so adorable, she isn't scary! A big hug!

Fabiola said...

Your witch house is amazing. I like the details. Elfvera is a perfect witch and she is wearing a nice dress and a magic hat.

Drora's minimundo said...

This witch house is fabulous. Wonderful work on the windows, especially with the tattoos. The name Elfvera suits the doll, a great find by the way. It is really a fun project.
Hugs, Drora

The Old Maid said...

Te esta quedando genial.

It was my biggest pleasure to meet Elfvera and hear her story... great... you may have noticed by now - I like stories. ;O) Applause for your roof, it's wonderful work. And your windows turned out great... I like your idea with the cat stickers very much. The interior looks very promising so far... nevertheless I have to ask: What is contact paper? Paper with an adhesive sticky back? Well, I'm really looking forward to seeing your progress... ah, a wizard's lab... so many possibilities!!!


Piikko said...

Wow! I love this house!
The tattoos are great idea!
And Elfvera! What a witch!!♥
Mari, I wish you a wonderful May! ♥
Hugs, piikko

Eloisa said...

Te está quedando genial Maria, me gusta mucho y tu brujita es una monada.

Daydreamer said...

Elfvera looks very at "home" in her new silver knit gown with Bat trimming!!! And I love that you know so much about her "Ancestry"! It is details like that that make life so interesting! You never know.... you might one day discover her Grandfather somewhere... maybe he has just been out roaming the woods looking for mushrooms! LOL!
The house is coming along at a fantastic rate.... you must have cast a few spells to get the builders to work so quickly! I really look forward to seeing what you add next!!!

Cinderella Moments said...

The cats in the window look so great. With light behind them they will look fabulous. The wizard's room floor is so nice! The house is coming together! Looks fantastic!

Jane Smith said...

It is looking fantastic maria! I love all the textures you've used on this house it looks so well aged and earthy. Your witch will be very happy there working on concoctions!

Marta said...

Hi Maria, the house looks wonderful with the moss, it looks very realistic.
The story about Elfvera is so cute, now we know a lot about her and her family, she really seems to be a very nice and clever witch and I can´t wait to see more about her and the house :)
Have a great week !

Warm hugs Mieke xxx

Tu nuevo proyecto me gusta mucho, es una cabaña preciosa. Las entradas con "historias" me encantan. Te está quedando genial. Besitos

Lovejoy Bears said...

It's looking so wonderful Maria!! I love the moss on the roof and the cats on the windows. It's all feeling very magical :)
I love Elfvera and your wonderful ideas for the house. I hope you'll find a wizard one day too :)
I always feel that houses come to life when they have inhabitants and a story and yours is wonderful!! hugs ♥ ♥

Yolanda Morán said...

Esta muy bien, la fachada me encanta esta fabulosa.
Un abrazo.

Hannah said...

I agree, the cats in the window looks really cool!
When I was a kid, I was scared of a lady named Vera, she was very strict, I think of her when I saw the witch, since the name was similar, and the strict eyebrows =)

Tatiana said...

Дорогая Мария!
Какой замечательный и интересный проект! Вы сделали большую работу! Кошки на окнах смотрятся замечательно! Я люблю вашу куклу-ведьму! Она очень милая! Летучие мыши украшают платье, это замечательная идея! Я с нетерпением жду продолжения! Вы сделали милую спальню для Elfvera! Я думаю, что она счастлива жить в таком прекрасном доме!
