At last my camera is fully charged so I can show you the fantastic selection of baskets made for me by Glenda of Peppercorn Minis. I asked for witchy colours and these fit the bill perfectly for both my house and shop. They are beautifully made and so cute. Glenda also kindly included one of her weaved mats and a some extras which are much appreciated. This is one of the many things I love about Blogland, that I can make contact with a lovely lady in New Zealand who shares my passion for minis. What a great way to share expertise. Much apreciated Glenda not only for your generosity but for taking so much trouble when you are about to move home.
And then today I get a package from a little nearer home! Nikki of Witch & Wizard Miniatures put the items she had left from KDF, very few following her huge success, on Etsy Sunday night. I really should not have looked but......you know how that song goes! Well here are the great pieces that I really shouldn't have.....The chimenea was one of the items I didn't buy at KDF as I bought the hatstand but there was only one left and I thought it would be fab for my potions and lotions department in Witch E.T.Grubb's shop. The photos do not really do it justice it has a great shape and texture plus the coals really glow beautifully. Then I had to buy another pumpkin to go with my other one, I actually wanted to but everything was going so quickly I couldn't get my fingers going quick enough! The pumpkin bird box is really cute,I missed these completely at the show so I was really pleased to be able to buy one of these.
The dragon skull is for the shop, it is so unusual and perfectly crafted, a super item. Then I found this mandrake sack and two of Nikki's lovely bead flasks. Oh no I thought Nikki has mixed up my order. I contacted her straight away and discover that this lovely, generous artist had included them for me as gifts because she thought they were seconds so would not be happy selling them. How unbelievable is that!
And by the way Nikki's idea of a second is a perfectly gorgeous item in anybody else's book.
So I have been a very lucky girl this week, being shown such kindness and generosity by two lovely people.
Thank you both very much.
