There were a couple of shoppers loitering outside my Diagon Alley shops in the photographs I posted yesterday.
These were must have pre-Christmas purchases from two of my favourite artisans.
This wonderful witch is actually a hanging decoration. I am not sure I will ever hang it on my Christmas tree but I am sure she will find a place on a room box one day.
She is the work of an extremely talented lady who as far as I know only sells on Ebay. Her work only appears a few times a year and gets snapped up very quickly. Her Ebay ID is wetpaintco and I usually find her items by pure chance.
I only have a couple of her sculpted pieces but I love them.
The dolls and characters of Silke Janas-Schlosser are absolutely gorgeous but like the previous seller are very rarely available on the Internet.
I know Silke attends a few very prestigious shows but unfortunately not in the UK.
Whenever her characters appear in her Etsy shop they are sold almost immediately so I was delighted to be able to purchase this girl witch just before Christmas.
What a great expression she has! I want to create some girlie witchy shopping for her eventually, definitely a basket full of cookies and sweeties I think. With that naughty look she may even have visited Fred and George's joke shop.
