A Randomly Selected Newspaper Headline:

The following is a randomly selected newspaper headline from many years ago:

Welcome to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I assure you I always read and appreciate everything you have to say. Unfortunately, thanks to Blogger being, well . . . Blogger, I can not respond to comments nor leave any on your blogs. They simply disappear into the ether. Occasionally I will remember to respond in the next blog post I put up, but usually these good intentions slip my mind. So if you want to ask a question or get a response to any comments you may have please leave an email address or other contact method in your comment and I will get back to you.

I have also added a separate page to the blog for the Tower of Magic with a brief summary of all the rooms of the ToM in the one spot. The link is just below this and above the main body of the blog, or you can just click here.

Population Boom

After burying the floor under a foot deep mass of fabrics and trims and suffering countless needle and pin pricks, the castle is now loaded with lots of gaily dressed people.  All the clothes have been hand made and many of the dolls were hand wigged too.  Many of the dolls used are from the castle before I started to renovate it, a couple were made from polymer clay especially for the remodelled castle.

Sitting lady in black.

She needs more jewellery!
The men of the castle.  Not too sure about that blue hat though!
Zaltar, Sarisha and Nera.  The two girls were made from polymer clay.
 I named the castle Dawncrest because certain elements of the castle reminded me of a fictional castle called Dawncrest.  So to enhance the similarity I made three dolls up to look like three characters from the story in which the original Dawncrest appears.  They are from an exotic foreign land and have just arrived.  Do you remember those boxes I started to make a couple of weeks ago?  When I get around to finishing them, they will be the travellers' luggage.

 Now I'll probably end up spending all week rearranging the dolls until I find a position I like for everyone.


  1. The dolls all look lovely :)


  2. These dolls are very nice.

  3. Well done with all that work - the dolls are lovely and I particularly like your sitting lady in black.
