I have spent quite a lot of time on this room considering the bed was already dressed and ready to go. I kept standing back and looking at it all trying to get the right look. I find it really difficult to do messy, dusty or untidy so my witch will have to be a very particular character or perhaps she has a lot of magical creatures to do it for her.
I started with the trunk which has been crackled underneath all the stuff. Them I just lined the edges with different pieces of ribbon and material adding some socks, books, boots, a lovely wicker bag by Kat the Hat Lady and a parasol from The Little Hatter. I think it has just a hint of chaos which is good for me!
A cracked dressing table and stool. Lots of bead perfume bottles, an interested rat and a few bits and pieces. Two skull candle holders at the bag that Ira sent me. I have not stuck everything down as I will be looking for a few extra bits and ideas at Kensington. I'd like a boa to drape, a little bit of glamour perhaps.
These were the first pieces I bought, before the house, before everything... made by Ebay seller Dollshouse Delights I have simply added a few extra pieces like: books from Treefeathers and Jenny Kelm, witch toffee jar by Nikki Rowe, plus a few pieces of fabric to make the drawers look used. Even two years on I still love this bed.
This is the room in its mostly finished state. Just needs a bit of tweaking and bats added to the roof trusses. I am sure you can spot Kat's hat and Jenny's 'Three Sisters' portrait.
So I am walking away from it now and leaving it alone - no tweaking until I find the bits I want! I do think my new vampire bats are going in this room now it will be a little crowded with the furry ones but so it should!
