HALLOWEEN - WITCH'S SECRET ROOM - MEET AGNETTA

 Hello Everyone!

It has been awhile, have been so busy. 
Sorry about that. 
Hope all have been well. 

Gee, I didn't expect the change in the
design in the posting feature.
I guess it is better, hope I can get used to it.

I told Detta  of 'Detta's Darling Dolls' ,
that I wanted a witch coming out
of a mirror.
BTW - Detta is on ebay. 
All you need do is type in clay witches, or witches and most
of the time her store comes up. 
Or you can do a search on her, somehow
her site will pop up!
They are very reasonably priced and she
will try to make a doll to your liking.

Meet Agnetta!
She is a very secretive witch.
Although you will only see a small part
of her secret room, know that her house is 
much bigger than this.
However her house and secret room are
all hidden away from people. 
Her room is hidden away in a berm of a
hillside, no one knows she exists there.

You must watch out for Agnetta cause she has
a hidden agenda - SHE STEALS!!!
That's right - she goes around the countryside
and anything she sees worth saving or having,
then she takes it when you are not looking!!
She takes it back to her secret room and then
hides it away from everyone. 

Hope you like Agnetta and her secret room!
RARE PHOTO of Agnetta on the prowl again. 
OH NO!! Has Agnetta's secret room
been found!!!
I hope not.


RARE PHOTO OF HER COMPLETE FACE!
Someone is trying to find the thief
that steals from everyone.
OOOoo get a good look at her face people.


Agnetta leaving the safety of her 
hidden room.


A side and back view of the moss covered
room.
You cannot tell that there is a secret window
here covered with moss.
I can get inside to move things around
if I want to.


Another view of the moss glued to the box.
Had to leave a space for the lid to go
back on.


Remember the hole in the roof that
I cut out.
A Halloween LED tealight fits inside.
Did not glue in the light and it fits
snugly.
Hid it with moss.


Towards the front of the box.


We must hurry before Agnetta comes
back.
She will not like it that we discovered
her hidden room.


Lets get an over-all view of the things
that she has stolen.
She stole everything including the light!!
She stole the desk area and bookshelves.
Of course I do not know how she got
the desk  or the bookshelves 
on her broom!!!
But, witches can be resourceful. 
Can't they?


There is some art work on the top shelf
that was painted by a famous artist.
3 large empty colorful bottles 
stolen from a famous wizard.
We have all heard of his name.
The word has it - that they were
stolen from Merlin before he died!!
Oh my - that is horrible!!

The small box with the haunted house
on it was stolen also. 
Inside there is a crystal ball hidden 
away. 
Ancient scrolls on the shelf beneath.


A skeleton box with its skeleton key.
I wonder what that belongs to.
A box of skeleton bones beneath the desk.
The window is to the right.
It is that large black space you see on the right
side of the wall.  


She stole the clock from a time traveler!!!
She stole the sign warning everyone that it is too 
late - you have been seen. 
Numerous books she has stolen.
I made all of the books that are displayed in the room.


OOoo she even hit the fairies!!!
She stole their secret potions. 
They are so heavy as well are the books that
they broke the shelf.
I hope the shelf does not fall down from the
weight!!!
Empty shelves show there is plenty of room
left to store more things she steals.


I tried roughing up the floor so it looks a little worn.


Some more books that Agnetta stole
that were previously twice stolen
before she stole them!
She stole that 'spell' page too!
And a hat!!!


Yes, as you see here -  she stole 
Harry Potters Sorting Hat!!!!
Oh my is there anything that Agnetta
will not steal? I guess not. 
Btw - Detta made me the sorting hat 
from nice leather.
Amazing what she can do! 


Here is the light on. 
So cool to have lights!!


Oh my!!! Agnetta is getting ready to go
out again.
It is a good day to go out.
See the skies above her head.
The sorting hat is telling her not to
go!
'Don't do it' he says!!!
Will she listen? I doubt it!

Hehehehe I love Halloween!


Hope you enjoyed Agnetta and her
secret room!
Thank you visiting me.
Come back soon!

HALLOWEEN - WITCH'S SECRET ROOM - Things that were done

Hello Everyone!
Hope all is well.

Thought I would show you what 
has been done on the 
witch's secret room.

All of the outside has been painted
black. 
Still have the lid to be painted
black but will do that later.
The inside was painted green
to just make it look more colorful.

I had to search for book shelves and that
took a lot of time.
I didn't want to spend any money on it
because the room is supposed to be from
stuff she had found that hopefully
holds some meaning to them.

I remembered after a search of looking
around the net that I had a garden
bookcase given to me by one of the
ladies of the mini group.
It was so cute so I placed it inside
of the box.
It was so cute and was made of
cardboard that had a pretty paper
glued to it. 
It was not very sturdy, but thought that
this would  work and could be great for the room.


It works! Looks like it was made for the
space. 
Had to paint it to get rid of the roses
look to it.


Before painting, I decided to make a
shelf look like it was getting ready to
break. 
I just took a random shelf.


I painted over this as you can see in the
pic a purple color.
I kind of liked the pinkish look to the
shelves but decided I would paint over
with purple to hid some of the roses
but that didn't even cover them liked I had
hoped for.
The purple color sure is an eye catcher,
but way to colorful for this room.
So, back to painting the shelves another color
on top to cover before deciding the
color I want it to be.
The purple has to be toned down a lot
before going into the room.

I made the desk area in the back along with
the shelves from thick brown cardboard. 
Then ran a little bit of black across them 
to give them a little bit of age. 
I like the way it looks and might think
about making some more stuff out of
cardboard. 


Hope you got some ideas here and 
enjoyed seeing what I had done. 
Thanks for stopping by and visiting me.

Dollhouse - Name Unknown

Hello everyone.
Hope all is well and are continuing
to be safe.

Hope you also will use the
envelope patterns on the inside from
the last post.
There are so many ways to use them.

Do not know the name of this dollhouse
that I received. 
It is big and very nice!
But I cannot use it - no room here!
So I m going to donate it to the 
Thrift store here in town. 
Am sure or hope that some lucky little
girl will see it, want it and make it
her very own.

No words necessary.






Thank you for stopping by.

PRINTABLE - Inside envelopes show quilt designs

Hello everyone!
Been running behind on everything.
Just one of those months I guess.
Anyway until I can get caught up - thought
that you would like to print these out
so you can have some COOL quilts.
Just print them onto fabric, do some
hand/machine quilting and POOF you are
finished!

Be sure to check out the insides of those envelopes.

This first envelope is 1655 X 1522 pixels. so it will
print out bigger, just reduce to the size you need and
want.
There is a wrinkle in the pic but I thought it would
look good to see some movement in the quilt.



I left a little at the top here for you to cut off 
cause not sure what size this one would print
out to be. 
This one would look great as backing fabric
for a quilt or as dress fabric!!
You choose.
It is 1072 X 1358 pixels.


Hope you have had a great day!
Thank you for stopping by!

HALLOWEEN - WITCH'S SECRET ROOM - BOX PREPPED AND PAINTED

Hello Everyone!
Hope you are all staying safe.
And definitely keeping busy
doing your miniatures.

Love those booknooks.
Thank you so much Drora for
sending me the link on how one
guy made his.
I see the box is much narrower than
the box I am using. 

My box is 3&3/4's inches wide.
Those booknooks are much skinner
at least about half of the width of mine.
So, this will not be a booknook but will
be I hope a secret looking room.

I am still looking for a narrower box though
to make a booknook. 

Here are some pics of what I have done already.
Remember what the box looked like before.
It looked like a piece could be sawed out.
So I sawed out that piece to make a window.
It may be a secret witch room but I want
to be able to see in.


I cut out a hole at the top for a tea light
to be inserted in.


I then cut 2 sticks and glued it to the bottom.
You can see that I did not take the sticks up
to the edge.
The reason is because I want the lid to help keep
dust out of the room.


Just an upright pic to show the bottom.


I cut the plastic out for the window.


Inside is dirty and was wiped out.


Outside of box is painted black.
Just have the lid to paint.


I painted the inside of the box black.


I felt that it was 2 dark so I painted it
green with some black streaks.


Thank you for stopping by and hoped
that you enjoyed visiting with me.
