The Apothecary


I was trying to sort out the upstairs in the Apothecary yesterday. Trying out all the bits and pieces. It may not stay like this. (if you click on the pictures they will pop up bigger) Because of the shape of the walls and ceiling it's a challenge trying to find everything to fit.
On the steps there is a Black Cat, made by Annie Willis of Fine Design. On the windowsill, the Wizard has a collection of Pewter Dragons, which I brought from America. The book case is the one I distressed from Matlock Miniatures. Still more books needed to fill this. On the chair, is the little sewing basket from Nikki. Also under the tables is another crate by Nikki and a little basket filled with Goodies. There's also a crate of Dragon eggs under there from Kat. Nikki's little cauldron with the face is sitting on the table amongst all the glass lab equipment, he is the Wizards personal cauldron.
If you look closely at the pumpkins in front of the table, you can just make out the little mice and the rat. These were made by Liz Smith of Streets Hill Miniatures. The Wizard was made by Jan Clarke. I have lots more to go in here, but wanted to show you all how its coming along..
