Magical Miniatures

If you love all things magical and miniature you are in the right place.

About me and my blog

I am a mother of three and work on a market stall. In my free time I love to make magical miniatures. It all started with my gran who spent hours when I was a child teaching me how to make do. This entailed mending and fixing and making things from scratch. My dolls house consisted of cardboard boxes with windows cut out, beautifully decorated and all furniture hand made. We sat for hours making clothes and accessories for my dolls to the envy of my friends that all had the same generic stuff. So thanks gran for the inspiration. I hope you enjoy my art and my blog. Thanks for visiting.

Witchcraft Manor... A witches home 1

The beginning....
The night was dark and the wind howled through the trees, all the Forrest animals huddled in their burrows and nests in wait of the on coming storm.
Something moved (at quite a pace too) along the leaf lined path.
Thunder rolled across the sky followed by a flash of lightning that lit the road ahead for just a few seconds. Long enough to make out the figure hurrying on her way.
With glowing blond hair cascading over her shawl and being tugged at by the wind, wandered a princess.
Lost and alone in the Forrest she searched to find her way.
The poor princess did not know she was in an enchanted Forrest, cursed by an evil crone long ago. Nor did she know that the curse prevented a princess from leaving once she entered.
As the lightning hung in the sky like a huge lightbulb she saw a house hidden within the trees.
Sweeping back the over grown ivy from the huge iron gate the princess revealed a sign. It read Witchcraft Manor.
The house had obviously been standing empty for many a year.
Pushing the creaking gate the princess squeezed herself through and continued to the entrance of the empty house.
Trying the door it easily opens as though inviting her in from the terrible storm outside.
The princess entered Witchcraft Manor and this is where the magic begins........
