You remember a few days ago? The birthday gift?
It has arrived safely!
There is this friend, you know. I mentioned her before. She is such a witch! In a good sense. We are both Terry Pratchett fans and that was what brought us together. I like to call her Granny Weatherwax, she calls me Nanny Ogg (for people who don't know Terry Pratchett ... maybe you should check out his books, they are great fun).
And then there is Jamie from Glasstastic Treasures. In her lampwork bead studio you can find sea critters, camels, dinosaurs, hearts, corn-on-the-cob, so cool, and and and ....... and a witch's cauldron. Black with a filling of green bubbly stuff. My friend is not that much into jewelry, so I had to think hard how to do the cauldron justice.
"Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing,-- For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble." Shakespeare sure had a way with words and then it clicked and I went to do a little magic of my own. Long grey hair, a battered pointed black hat, clutching her broken spoon, stirring the poisonous looking boiling green goo, there the tiny witch (1.5 inch including the "grass") is standing. She looks concentrated, I guess the potion has to be ready in the morning. A love potion? Something to heal sick goats with? Or maybe a facial mask! "My" witch wrote that she liked her. I bet the two are getting along just fine! ;-)
I just remembered that I turned another of Jamie's awesome creations into a gift.
This time it didn't become a witch, but ................
The UFO with the seed bead lights is silver tone wire, crocheted in shape.
