She made me this lovely cabinet of items that will be one of the centerpieces for the basement! Its got potions, scrolls, toadstools, (and my favorite) the most perfectly worn stack of books on the bottom shelf! I ALWAYS see Grandmama with her nose in a book. She just loves these! Below you can see Thing checking out the cabinet.... I think he likes the Bat details on the top!! :)
She also sent me these lovely objects to work into other cabinets and parts of the basement. Wednesday has claimed the wooden box of spiders (but being a good sister she shared the rats that were also in there with Pugsley! Also Grandmama has been practicing her curses with the skulls Kate sent. She's been chasing around Murph trying to curse him into a pile of firewood for her cauldron!!
And here are the other lovely bottles she sent. I am trying to think if I have time this week to mess with some Michael's hutches so I can get these guys a home!! They're just too cute not to be on display somewhere!! Look at the little skull top on that bottle!
And last but not least Kate sent me a Halloween issue of American Miniaturist with this article in it! It - is - so - incredibly - perfect!!! for the Addams house. It has this wonderful how-to article for making old distressed siding for houses. I will be studying it like crazy and trying to replicate it on the Mini-Mansion!
Thank you soooooo much Kate!!! You are so amazing and the whole Addams Family thanks you (and me too of course) for helping me on my poor neglected project - haha! You are inspiring me to get a few more things done on it this week! My pretty things need a home!!
Off topic: here's a pic of me from this weekend. My hubs took me on a surprise date....
