There is a knock at the door........

There is a knock at the door... Who could it be now? So many pass over the threshold of Vulture's Roost. Could it be the long awaited Count? Look at his Beautiful cape ~ 

He turns to the voice of his beloved ~ 

You came for me! Oh Count I am sorry I thought you wouldn't come.

My Dear Hattie, I have thought of nothing but you for the months we have been apart.

The happy couple reunited at last ~

Thank you to Linda Wooten for dressing The Count. Linda makes the most Beautiful draperies for doll houses and as you can see is the most excellent seamstress. You can find Linda here and on FaceBook here. Thank you so much Linda!

The cast of Vulture's Roost are my first attempts at doll making, most make with clay that lay dormant for almost 10 years. They are not very good but I love each one and they will live forever at Vulture's Roost ~

I will be back in a few weeks with a new tale from Vulture's Roost. I am taking off for a week to go visit my parents and have some family time, when I return I should be healed up enough to start back full force on my miniatures ~

The Elegant Witch ~

Today I thought I would share pictures of the finished cupboard.  As you remember from this post,  the cupboard started life as a thimble display. I finally was able to finish doing a little each day. The cupboard is sold, I was able to find another display like this so in the future sometime I will do a simular cupboard.
On the top shelf see the green cat bottle? A very special friend surprised me with a package of green cat beads, Thank you Cathy!

I even added a small set of 7 Deadly Sins bottles to the bottom shelf along with a skull, scrolls and a jeweled candle display ~

The candles are a translucent violet color ~

I made use of many vintage stampings, glass jewels and even an owl potion bottle ~

On  Vulture's Roost news, I did receive news that the Count is headed home from his vacation in Tennessee  so he should be making and appearance soon.

Everyone have a Great Weekend,

Ara's package has arrived!!!

I won Ara's 300 Follower Giveaway and my package has arrived....Yippie!!!  I won this awesome chair made by Ara and also included was a picture (more about it next) and this scary skeleton. I love it all Ara! Thank you so much. Please visit Ara's Addam's Family Mini Mansion blog and BentleyHouseProductions, Ara's etsy shop.

This Charles Addams picture was a surprise gift in my package, I LOVE it!!! This treasure will go in my vampire mansion as will the chair and probably the skeleton :)

I couldn't wait to try the chair in the mansion...should it go in this room? I am going to tone down the wallpaper in this room with a dark wash. Maybe we should ask the VonAmber's where the chair is to go...... Who are the VonAmber's you ask, well let me introduce you.

Meet August and Ember VonAmber the newlywed vampire couple who bought this mansion in need of so much work. I was waiting to introduce the VonAmbers until after the wedding but the chair is just so perfect for this house. I promise to tell you more of the VonAmber's story soon.

Thank you so much Ara! What a lovely day this has been.
