Well I think it is....yes it is, definitely.....no tweaking or filling allowed. Definitely not. I will not tamper. Or over fill. Or add. Really, nothing else?
Lots of photographs tonight as I can't help having fun with the camera, it's so rarely I actually finish a room. What's more it actually comes within a hair's breadth of being exactly how I imagined it.
As usual the characters of my Harry Potter world are surrounded by animals. An owl by Annie Willis and cats by David Ward. I can't remember who made the mice, I have had them stashed away for so long. The rock candy baskets were a gift from Nikki Rowe and I have given them the Honeydukes treatment.
These over large bottles were a mistake purchase that have finally found a place. I have tinted them with glass paint and soaked the corks in wood stain. I have filled them with unwanted bath crystals from M&S.
So far I have left the back shelf empty......it may become a place for leftover jars from the downstairs shop. If I break my no over-filling rule.
The candelabra, by Erika Van Horne, has been placed on the back wall. I would still like a standard lamp I think. Gosh, I am a lost cause! The wonderful bowl of fruit is a white bisque piece I have painted and filled with individual fruit by Bels Mini World. Do have a look in her shop, Bel is also so helpful if you have a commission. Her food is among the best I have seen.
Now there is space in the back corner. Should I fill it up with crates? I do so hate empty spaces. Maybe more crate piles one day? The Bat's Blood containers are novelty silver cocktail shakers for lip balm that I have sprayed and labelled.
Some of the pieces are glued to the floor while others are Tacky Waxed just in case I decide to have a change around.
I still can't make up my mind about the coffee table. There is a small amount of room amongst the witches. I only want a basic utility one to match Jane's furniture so I could try and make one and then decide.
I do love the way Lory's candles are looking on with such judgement!
I am going to leave it be now and return to the lower floor. Window displays beckon. I need to fill the windows before trying to fix the window panes. I think this will be easier to manage.
Apparently rain is due tomorrow so I will be able to hide in the workshop all day watching/listening to the tennis. Perfect English summer day!
