Have moved onto the bathroom and began to experiment with the whole potion thing. This was a very bog standard DHE pine bathroom set which I crackled. Then I added the lovely chair from Angela and a bespaq plant holder.
It's not quite finished yet but most of the gaps are filled. Lots of goodies around the bath, chocolates from a lovely Ebay seller and my first lotion bottles and of course her cat and a good book from Treefeathers.
As I made all these extra shelves every where it's only right that I fill them. I have been astounded by how much beads cost, especially larger ones. Now I know you worked this out a long time ago but never having been a crafter I am only just discovering ways of getting things cheaply. Anyway I have begun buying bits of costume jewellery from Sainsburys when they are 50% off, yes I know I should also go to local car boot sales and trawl through but we have so much football and tennis going on at the weekends that I just can't face them. I am a terribly lazy shopper and Sainsburys is about as far as I go most weeks.
These lotion and perfume bottles are made from necklaces that I have broken up. They were just the right colours.
One of David Ward's kittens is sitting in the wash bowl, are mine the only cats that sit in sinks? One of Nikki's dragon eggs is there ready for making her face mask and a couple of fluffy towels.
As you can see I still have plants to make for the corner.
There are still a few gaps here, I have been good and waited rather than just fill it up with what I have left. Really pleased with the perfume bottles and I have made a couple of potion bottles where I have practised with scenic water, not too sure about this yet - practice makes perfect....
The towels are budget flannels that I have just cut to size, they look nice and fluffy.
Just a few finishing touches and I will only have the kitchen left to do in the house. Getting there!
Oh and my lovely giant tortoise is from Jenny Kelm a great way to move your books around.
There seems to be quite a big space in the middle of this room, I think I might have to have a look at Glenda's lovely rugs.
