This house is approximately 15.5' tall, 10" x 8" base. The base is a kit house which has been altered slightly and embellished like no one's business.

I've made a few little houses that inspired a feeling of magic and wonder but this time I wanted to make a house that was all about magic and witchcraft. If a faerie dabbled in the magical arts... this is what I imagine his house would look like.
The house has four rooms.
The first and largest room is a sort of occult shoppe. There is a shrine to "Our Lady", an homage to Marie Laveau, scrolls, teeny bead bottles, handmade miniature leatherbound books, a collection of sculls and magical powders. Each tiny vial has the actual contents labeled on the front including Love Powder, White Sage, Dragons Blood, Goofer Dust, Fast Luck Oil and Grave Dust and more. (Please keep this in mind for shipping purposes)
The second room is the "Reading Room". There is a table with miniature tarot cards, a pearly 'crystal' ball, palmistry hand, phrenology and palmistry posters, and a teeny weeny Ouija board.
Upstairs is the Mystic's private sanctuary where he practices his art. In this room there is a mirror, bell, cauldron, trunk, vials of Dragons Blood and Mugwort, and a portrait of Doreen Valiente for magical inspiration :)
Lastly there's a small attic space storing all sorts of little bits and bobs.
There's a lot going on in and on this house. The exterior is covered with moss and fake bugs, bark, acorns and lots of loverly things.
Because there are so many little pieces and parts all items have been permanently affixed.
If you are interested in this house and would like more photos please don't hesitate to contact me :) Likewise, if you'd like a house created on a specific theme I'm open to doing comission work.
