Life happens while you are making plans...

Actually my plan was to be a bit quicker with my next post, but although I am spending a lot of time making minis I just don´t get ready with anything, so today I´ll be showing you "details" :-)))
As you can see on my first picture, my witch Miranda has been very successfully in breeding a very rare Whomping Willow (okay, the foto is lousy, but this is also a very BAD MOODED Whomping Willow who constantly refused to say "Cheeeeeeeeeeeeese" for the fotographer!) And getting on the cover of the Daily Prophet...Mrianda couldn´t have thought about a better promotion for her witchy business "Miranda´s Magical Seedlings".  Then, the day before the guys from the newspaper arrived, Miranda transformed into a frog!!!! Aaaaaaaaaaagh!  She was up to use some polyjuice potion with a hair from Cassandra Clearwater
(an old enemy from her Hogwarts school days -both fell in love with a teacher called "Gilderoy"). Well, as you can easily see, something was wrong - maybe there was some frogspawn on the hair????
This will have to be sorted out. But until then Miranda needed another kind of a "bed"....

And I am busy collecting and making witchy stuff....

This beautiful cauldron is made by Georgia Marfels (as are the mice in the background and the Miranda frog) . While Miranda is preferring to have all kinds of flies for dinner, the cauldron is used for someone else...

This is Flitzhinaus, he is a GoldenDesertDragon -baby. He prefers warm temperatures and dry places, is even able to learn human speech (only if he wants to). You will not have seen one before, as they are rare. Really rare, almost eradicated be generations of males as their skin is the only working antidote against male hair loss.

And I made some other magical pumpkins and plants for Miranda´s store. And -of .course - 
a witch is supposed to have a lot of books. I only made a few yet :

And this is where Miranda´s going to live. My Café Igitt is going to get a new exterior and
"Miranda´sMagicalSeedlings" are on the first floor, her private rooms will be under the roof.

Somehow I am not able to make links today -sorry! 
Kaisa is organising a Birthday Swap and today is Rosella´s Birthday!
Happy Birthday Rosella!!!
As she already opened her gifts I can show you what I made:

And for my Ballerina´s house I made some more tulips, some roses and a shabby memo board:

Hey, I am really in the mood for springtime!  Are you, too???

Bye for now, hugs,


  1. What a cute and interesting post. I am getting to know Miranda and will follow what she'll be upto.

  2. Ich lach' mich gerade scheckig... von den Fröschen mit Hut gab's einen sitzenden und einen laufenden - 1 x darfst Du raten, wer den anderen hat!!!
