Spooky mini Halloween :)

Share It:
Hello guys :)

I have more pics of the finished pieces that I've completed for Halloween.

Among them, a very nice cupboard that now looks like a 19th century Italian piece. You know? I see it and it reminds me of the movie "Practical Magic" with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman, if you dind't watch it ... do it! the set design is gorgeous and so inspiring for Halloween!

I'm quite happy with the result, it's my 1st attempt on doing "faux marble" finish and in blue! (most of my shop is blue or pink ... lol).

Here's the cupboard:

Completely restored, new handles and a matching paper into each drawer

Finished piece and my cam reflecting in the mirror lol

Potions, magic and more potions! many of them for sale at my Etsy shop :)

Any magic practitioner needs a wand, and here's a very special and one of a kind wand that I've made. It's real wood from my parent's ash tree outside (nono!!! I didn't cut a branch! I wait till they get rid of the very long branches before summer comes and instead of trashing all that precious wood, I cut some so as to do wands, fairy furniture and more :)).
The stone you see is the outside of a real diamond (the heart of the stone is the expensive part cos of its purity), and it reflects the light beautifully....
I added moons and pearl beads.

And here we have a smaller table showing other things like ... a witch's hat! it has a silken violet ribbon.


Pics of the potions you can find them soon at my Esy shop, I have to upload them.

Thanks for looking!!! more pieces on the way!

      The wand is one of my fav pieces. The raw diamond is so shiny and it looks nice with the pointy hat.
