This is the main church hall where you can see The greatest Wizard of Vinweeda he is Matilda's and Esmerelda's grandfather. It's here in St Helen's that his wishes are for them both to learn everything he knew so they can continue the legacy of Vinweeda. As you an see there is a funeral about to be take place, Old Aunt Agatha has passed away but still her spirit lives on and today is to celebrate her life as you can see her favourite party hat has been placed on her coffin as she loved to ParTy her coffin has been handmade by Victoria DarkSquirrel and the hat is of course A Kat The Hat lady Hat .. called ' Lets do the time warp ' which is very fitting for Old Aunt Agatha as her ghost can be seen around St Helen's doing the time warp with a bottle of rum! And also she will pop through her sister's mirror to say Hellooo dear .. My lovely friend Julia made my wonderful throne especially for in here and Nicky cc also made me the fabulous lectern with a lovely Dragon called Sabrina who is having a little snooze while everyone gets ready
Matilda has arrived and already Smorg has followed her into a special room he likes to sit under the chair and keep watch for Matilda
And here is the room behind the main Dragon window where the Vinweeda cabinet is .. This fabulous Cabinet is one of Victoria Darksquirrel creations that she made especially for this room and it is one of my favourite pieces there's so many wonderful potions and Matilda loves to experiment with them and find out what does what lol Also her first little gremlin pet is in here, he is called Griff and my first Gremlin from Nicky cc he is a very mischievous little gremlin, Matilda came back with him one day after a walk in the woods, so while training him she has to keep him in his cage otherwise there's mayhem in the potion room!! Sparks flying literally!
And here you have St Helen's by night ....

This is St Helen's and at the moment one of my main buildings that tells so many story's a miniature friend asked me if I would be interested in this little church building and of course when I saw it I thought perfect for my next project !!!! I have always wanted to do a church and when I saw the shape of the building it reminded me of a church here where I live Called St Helen's same shape building so it had to be a miniature 12th scale of St Helen's of course with my own added twist into it. This has been a ongoing project over the last 12 months and has been so much fun to do. Click the photo's to enlarge
And of course it had to be a Welsh Dragon lol
I was so thrilled with all her work and how it transformed the church and made it look as realistic as possible we then also chatted about a base and and while I made the base,and head stones Christina was working away designing all the flowers for the base, Flowers for the path, head stones and across the main Church wall. When they arrived I couldn't get over how beautiful they were and how real they looked
I've been slowly filling up Inside the shop deciding how and what to use, I wanted it to have a bit of everything and using the main shelving on the left as more of bric a brac etc so here's where I'm up too so far, Today I received a wonderful parcel from Nicky cc of more of her creations that just go so well in here.

My lovely friend Christina sent me the bottle on the Left its such a different piece to what I have seen before so I added some butterfly's inside and also added these fab red beads from kat into the other bottle
And these fab little beads which make perfect Magic Dragon Eggs

I thought before I post any more of my projects that I'm working on at the moment doing a bit on each I better had introduce who lives in all my little houses and yes of course they are all witches and elves and a wizard too! Im hoping when have more space LOL All the buildings will go together like a little village where this family live each project has been so much fun to do and I will post their buildings too soon. It all started with Grandma Finella Fiddlestick who is a lovely friendly old witch that celebrates life in all its forms, she lives on the outskirts of quite a wealthy town so is well paid for her healing potions. She absolutely refuses to wear black! She said there is time enough for that when grim pays her a visit! She is getting ready for her daily rounds, basket laden with potions and portents! her daily walks means she is able to stay active and spry, plus it means she can scour the hedgerows on her way home for making the next days potions, She has two granddaughters called Matilda and Esmerelda, Matilda is a little witch child who is very mischievous and loves to learn and test her new inventions spells and potions She can be found all over in the village either in St Helen's with her grandmother, making potions while Finella tends to the flowers, Or she is causing mischief with her little friend Dobby in her shop.. When ever Finella goes into the village she is always with her little friend Sproggle Of course Finealla is a grandma to them all. Matilda, Dobby and Sproogle all live at Grandma's house and Esmerelda who is a little older than Matilda lives in her Steampunk Tower she likes to have her own place and time to her self away from her little sister blowing up potions lol.. And of course there's the professor Davidovsky He makes all the potions in this little Village with the help from Finella and her grandaughters of course ;) . If you click on the pictures they will enlarge
Grandma Finella, Sproogles and The professor are all from Nicky cc .. Dobby My lovely friend Julia made for me, matilda is from Bellabelle Dolls and Esmerelda flew all the way over on her broom from Texas lol

I got a Fabulous Wizard from Nicky and wanted him to have his own little potion room where he spends most of his time making potions and testing out his magic, So I used an old Room Box I had and decorated it for him and collected some wonderful potions from Victoria dark squirrel. My lovely friend Carlanne sent me the gold deer from her hubbys whisky bottle and the magical glass/ Mystic Eye, Also there are some candles that Vicky made and my fabulous Mirror that My lovely friend Julia made for me. The table and chair is from Afan Vally Miniatures. if you click on the photo's they will enlarge
