Happy Together!

So much time has passed since my last post! Now I really hope that you enjoyed a very happy Christmas and wish you a Happy 2013!  The last year seems to have been a difficult year for many of us so I hope that 2013 will have a lot of positive surprises for us!

Quite a while ago, actually in the night of Helloween, it was finally time for cutting the mandrakes for a very special beer. Our houseelf Albert is a bit soft-hearted, so for this special job we had to organize the help of another elf, Alfie. 

Yeah, and Alfie didn´t hesitate and made a quick job....and the mandrakes soon were cut in little bits and came into a bottle, along with some spices and other, secret ingredients (Better, you Muggles don´t know too much of it!)...after that the bottle was corked and had to thicken over some weeks.

Albert was sooooo glad! But also worried: would it work? Could Miranda finally be human again????
Last night was THE night. Time to find out....

She is back :-)

Still, Miranda needs some time to recover from her long existence as an owl...and the urgent desire to eat some mice....

...but Albert and Miranda, they are soooo happy together!

Have a happy week!


  1. Oh, I am so happy to see Albert and Miranda happy together!
    I am also happy to see your new post!♥
    Have a lovely week you too!
    Hugs, piikko

  2. Nur gut, dass der Alfie kein Weicheich ist.
    Ich hätte es nicht geschafft. Ich kann kein Blut sehn!!!!!!
    Sonst wäre Miranda wohl ewig eine Eule geblieben!!!
    Liebe Grüße

  3. What a darling story with gorgeous photos. Are those mandrakes on the table? They are so expressive! It's always wonderful to here from you, Sandra! xo Jennifer

  4. Great to hear from you. I wish you a happy new year and hope it will be a good year for you and your family.
    Lovely, the story ends well. Fine scenes.

  5. Haha after that scary start I am very glad that it had a happy ending :D Your mandrakes are amazing. Very happy to see you posting again :)
    Hugs Maria

  6. Herrlich... DIE Überschrift und dann das erste Foto! Grandios - wie natürlich auch der gesamte Post! Wir sind so froh, dass wir Miranda nun endlich in ganzer Pracht bewundern können und nun auch endlich wissen, was die fesche Hexe von heute so trägt... *zwinker* Alfie mit seinen Ohrenschützern ist natürlich auch der Hit - und nicht zu vergessen die bedauernswerte Alraune!

    Liebe Grüße
    Flutterby und Birgit

  7. Hi Sandra, finally a post of you, I have missed you ;)!!
    Great story about killing the mandrakes to make special beer. I hope Miranda wasn't drunk after she drank it? :D
    I love that gorgeous witch, she is a real beauty with a dark side or.....?
    Hugs, Ilona

  8. Muchas felicidades, me encanta su trabajo!!

  9. Gott sei Dank war Alfie nicht so arg zimperlich mit den Alraunen... sonst wäre Miranda wohl ewig eine Eule geblieben... wäre ja zu schade gewesen... sie ist eine wirklich bezaubernde junge Dame!
    Liebe Grüße

  15. Dear Sandra, you say well, the past year, for many of us was not brilliant (I raise my hand too), but the new beginning always leaves room for hope :-)

    Warum heißt der Blog Samira?


    1. Hallo Nana!
      Danke für Deinen Besuch! Das "SaMiRa" setzt sich aus den Anfangsbuchstaben meines richtigen Namens zusammen. Wenig originell, aber was Besseres fiel mir nicht ein :-)
      Liebe Grüsse,
