Witches' class after Rheda fair

After the fair I worked on inserting Georgia Marfels's minitures into the class... 😊

Nancy Cronin's snooty witch ; a healthy school lunch awaiting !

A birdie on the book......

Over the fireplace the class lamp looks around ; on the fireplace some mandrakes and evil worms .

There is also a book with a book worm !

Rheda fair !

Yesterday I went to the Rheda fair (Germany) ; drove there and back, total 600 kms round drive. Is a bit of  a distance to cover for this ole'gel, esp when you do a fair in between 😜. And it was quite warm in Rheda, as well.

Still, I do love the fair and the venue . The fair contains some 200 vendors , both artisans and import/DIY sellers.

I hit Georgia Marfels' stand, of course :

                                  some grisly ( silicon) molds , to be used for bottles etc

                                               nasty books  and a pair of toadstools

                        accessory lighting and mushrooms ( probably for 1/24 scale cottage)

                                                               bookworm !

                             grinning mandrake , flesh eating plant, worm and a  bird skellie :

                                Loredana Tonetti had some witchy thing for me, too : a healthy school                                                       lunch for the pupils, a class lamp, and another mandrake

                          Of course, some 1/24 porcelain from Elisabeth Causeret ( no website, sorry) :


                                                         Some other 1/24 stuff:

                        And several 1/24 furniture kits by Laserville, bought from Melissa Sipma

 I also needed some 1/12th good quality wallpaper, so hopped off to Susan
 Bembridge's stand No pic here, since it is still on a roll, cat-safe, but you can view it here :  (the red one)

Witches' class progress

Long way to go yet !!!!

The books and scroll I bought from "The Miniature Scene of York ", who have excellent service, btw.

The rat is by Georgia Marfels ( of course) , who also made pesky flies and wasps, caught in the spiderwebs. She also made some other books, will photograph them shortly.

What I am working on

In December/Jan I had started working on a witches' class . I had to leave the project for some weeks, however ,as I had boldly decided I needed new flooring in my bedrooms - my craftroom is one of the two ( meant : movers in , all stuff out, new flooring in, movers in, all stuff in again, finding stuff back😮 ). But now I have started to put it together.

Here was where I had got to when I had to take a break:

The basic instructions came from an old issue of DHMS (back from 2012) , a project called "" A Witches'  Hovel, by Kastle Kelm Miniatures, The fireplace is resin and I bought it from Melody Jane . 

I did add some more things, but here is a picture of some nasty-minded toadstools I planted today. as far as I remember I bought them from Loredana Tonetti on Etsy some years ago. I love them! Those Monday Morning Faces!!! 😀😀

                    In the meantime kitties are loving life, me being with them most of the time since I                                                                      retired 🙌....

                                        Sometimes they play games on my Ipad....😁


                                          And sometimes they are just happy lazy babies.... 😽😽

                                        or lazy and warm in windowsill...😽
