Weird & Wonderful Call...
Today I was talking to Nikki over at Witch & Wizard Miniatures. We do that quite a lot. If anyone had been eaves dropping on our conversation, they would have thought we both needed to be in the Looney Bin.
Nikki was saying, that she was really worried that she still hasn't made enough for Kensington. So I said to her, right tell me over the phone what you've made and I'll make a list, then I'll read it back to you and I bet your be surprised at what you've got. So Nikki was walking round opening boxes and telling me the contents over the phone.
Well can you imagine, there was mention of pots of bones, blood, potions, hanging pumpkins, mandrakes, dragon skin, Cauldrons and dissecting boards, to name a few. Then the pair of us get the giggles about nothing in particular. I think our respective families think we are quite mad. LOL. (Refer to the above photograph of the Owls, this is one of mine and Nikki's favourite photographs, I'll leave it up to you to put a name to the Owls). Anyway after reading the list back to Nikki, I think even she was surprised at just how much she has made. She's got some lovely surprises that she hasn't shown on her blog yet and a few more items to finish and a few she wants to start, but she's definitely getting there..
This evening while Mick and the boys were watching the TV. I've been distressing white wood furniture again for Diagon Alley, well for the Apothecary to be exact. I'm really pleased that I've managed to match up the colour to the other table and Bookcase, that I had already distressed for in there. Hopefully, tomorrow I can start rearranging the tables and all the other bits and pieces.
