Lunch is Served at The Leaky Cauldron.....

 I have come a long way in this marvellous hobby but I decided very soon, after many disastrous attempts at bread making, that making mini food was definitely not for me.
Just as well then that there are so many talented people selling wonderful pieces like this one from one of my absolute favourite artisans - After Dark Miniatures
When I saw it I knew it was just what I wanted for The Leaky Cauldron. I think it has all the earthy, rustic quality of a wizard's lunch and I just loved all the autumnal colours. 
The quality is simply fabulous right down to the tiny walnuts. 
After Dark's pieces are little works of art and I feel so privileged when I look at them, which is one of the many joys of collecting.

Update on the LED's.....they did NOT fall off the ceiling over night, another point in their favour as far as I am concerned, yes I know, I'm in love! 


  1. What a great purchase for your Leaky Cauldron! I love the colors. Her beautiful rustic food boards have always been my favorite.
