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.

New project

Hello everyone :) It is time to show you my new project or what I have done of it so far lol. I have been wanting to do some sort of magical witchy house for a long time but never seemed to get round to it. This house is one of those small houses open at the back. I have never "done" anything much to the outside of my houses except paint one lol But this time I decided to be brave and try some ideas. I  admire  the very generous bloggers that show you how to make so many things.Thank you all so much.

This is the sides I saw a tutorial somewhere sorry I cant remember where that used crumpled up tissue paper so that's what I did I stuck it on  then painted it with a few different  browns terracotta and black till it looked a bit like tree bark. 
I have also done the roof I cut strips of heavy paper and made the tiled roof again painted with greys and a few other colours thrown in for good measure :D I still have to add some moss to it. Wow I much admire the people that do all these things to all their houses its hard work and takes much more time but I also had so much fun :DD
The " bricks" are cardboard packaging I didn't have enough egg cartons but I had this packaging that worked so I tore it up into very small bits stuck them on and painted phew was that hard work lol.

I am rather pleased with the result.

I also made this door from scratch. I used coffee stirrers and findings the arch was a piece of scrap wood. 
I have already bought these fantastic items from someone I admire and think of as a very special friend Birgit BiWuBaren on the Blog. The owl on the door was a gift from her.

Isn't this house just amazing. I knew when I saw these on her etsy that I had to do this house and I had to have these for it :)))

She also sent me so many wonderful extra gifts.
Thank you so much Birgit  I have ideas for all these :) and this is why I am watching Gertie's project with Lots of interest :D 
I have lots and lots more to do with this project it will keep me busy for quite some time :D Next time I will tell you who will live and work in this house ;-)
Have a wonderful week.
Hugs to all my friends.
