Those of you that watched and remember the Addams Family TV show (the black and white one) might remember little miss Cleopatra. She is Morticia's beloved African Strangler. (And for those of you wondering I have no idea if an African Strangler is real). Cleopatra was raised by Morticia from the time she was a little seedling. Morticia actually had Cleopatra before she even married Gomez so they have quite a tight bond. Here you can see them in the new conservatory together (ignore the unfinished windows) smiling at each other! I think Morticias avoiding a 'hug' though...Cleo was handcrafted by the oh so talented Jayne of Tallulah~Belle Originals! Jayne contacted me asking more about Cleopatra and said she was interested in trying her out! Well in a panic of excitement I offered to do a swap with her (because no way would I be able to resist the Addams Family plant made by one of the best mini-plant-makers out there!) and she agreed. I am working on her swap as we speak but I won't say what it is yet!
Thank you so much Jayne! She is just the most perfect picture of what Cleopatra should be!! And Morticia is thrilled so that has me thrilled as well! These pics just don't show off the detail that Jayne puts into each one of her creations!! Cleo is perfect in everyway! She is already taken up as alpha plant and has all the other plants shaking in their pots! Here you can see her ruling in her new atmosphere, isn't she a show-stopper??:
Also in the Conservatory you can see a few bottle and potions made by Kate of The Whittakers Miniatures! Also on the back wire shelf you can see a little Venus fly trap chowing down on a lump of meat made by Christina Pardy.
And finally a quick portrait of the Queen of the Conservatory!! Morticia's off to make her favorite meal to welcome her to the Addams Family Mini-mansion: Yak Meat Balls! Yum!!
