Now, on to more fun stuff.
From Grapevine (http://www.grapevineminiatures.net/) had some great bottles. They are the same people I purchased the nice basket and two grapevine wreaths from on Saturday. Every good metaphysical shop needs lots of fun bottles. The tall one on the back will need a stand and the hook in the cork will have to go as well, but could be really fun sitting on a counter filled with something.
Bear Limvere of Standing People Designs (http://www.standingpeopledesigns.com/) does some of the most amazing wood turnings I have ever seen and they really specialize in some unique and rare woods. His wife does great burning and art on some the vases as well. The vase below is made from White Ebony is hollow, just as a vase should be. It stands just at an inch tall. I'm going to be doing a dried hydrangea arrangement in it. This will be used in the back "hall" of my roombox and should look great through the doorway. I love the play of wood tones in the piece. You can ask Bear and his wife Alisa about how long it took me to finally pick this piece. There were quite a few that I was pondering, but I went back to this one a few times. The shape was just perfect and the colors work really well in that hall. I think some "dried" flowers will look great in it.
The little guy below isn't anything super special, but I LOVED the pose and attitude he is giving. I'm going to repaint and flock him. I have plans for this little guy. I'm not going to tell you what they are now because I want it to be a surprise.
Hope you enjoy the rest of my purchases. Nothing too terribly exciting, but they sure are to me. I can't wait to actually start accessorizing The Mystic Path.
I mentioned my next roombox and you have no idea how hard it is for someone like me to not get started on it already. I have to FORCE myself to stick with one project. I just don't have the space to start something else before I complete the current one. I already have an unfinished dollhouse sitting in my spare room begging for me to work on it.
Oh so many projects, oh so little time. HAHA! I laugh, but I'm sure you can all sympathize with me. I know how y'all are...you are in the same boat as me.
