Alchemist Art & Glass Bottles One-Day Sale! New Mark-Downs 50% off!

Filed under Cat's Away... 2023, Lora Mahaffey

Holiday Closure & After-Christmas Sale

It’s Day THREE of this week of While the Cat’s Away Sales & Giveaways! (Can you believe it? This is the 16th Annual Cat’s Away Sale!)

Remember, the shipping staff are on vacation till January 3rd, but for sale prices and/or freebies, I think you’ll be able to wait. Shipping will BEGIN on January 3rd, so you’ll need to be patient if you’re ordering during this sale. More info on the sale and holiday schedule.

On to today’s goodies: TWO Sales and a Giveaway!

ONE: EVERYTHING on Clearance is now on Sale at 50% off!

This is HUGE (over 300 items from all themes) plus new items added daily during the sale!

The extra mark-downs end MONDAY night, January 1st, 2024 or until sold out! I will merge orders (to save shipping) if you order multiple times during the sale.

Highlights from NEW Clearance Items with an Alchemy Theme!

Over 20 items just added, so just a few highlights shown below. See all the new alchemy-themed mark-downs on Sale at 50% off.

The Alchemist’s Oracle by Lora Mahaffey

Wow! This is so beautiful! And so much thought and time went into all the little details. I’ll let Lora start off this intro (and scroll down a bit to see the wide photo showing more angles):

Oooh, this piece is kind of mysterious. In my mind the alchemist is using the oracle for calculating his transformational formulas. The planetary dials moving in sync with each other creating whispering harmonies, stopping at certain curvatures and creating patterns for the alchemist to study.

Or maybe… The mouse is the oracle. Sitting on his stool, interpreting the rotations like a fortune teller or a Tarot reader. [Aside: I subbed that grey mouse for the one Lora used.]

I drilled a hole in the back of the shadowbox (after gluing my chosen papers on the sides and back) to allow for the tea light flame to stick through.

Right after I did that I realized that the doors would not fit properly, so I decided not to use them. Too bad, because I had a fun thing I was going to do. Ah, well. Save it for next time!

After the final fussing was done in the interior and on the outside, the facade was glued on.

The runes are just completely made up. If they say anything it was an accident! (Or maybe I was channeling the mouse!)

Good work, Lora!! I particularly like the bent piece of filigree on top of the front as a holder for the (back in stock) Round Glass Dome. Note: I added the filigree grab bags to the sale collection as the remaining stock of the filigree Lora used are now in those grab bags.

Oh, one more thing: happy accident that those half scale bookcases fit on the sides to hold all of the bottles and whatnot!
