Potions, Planters & Planchettes (& Dresden)

Filed under Dresden, Halloween, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper, Teri Calia

What a fun mix of new supplies today! Something for everyone… whether gardending for summer or looking ahead to Halloween!

That new little Glazed Ceramic Round Planter at left reminded me of the ceramic pot on top of the Wise Woman’s Apothecary Cabinet by Teri Calia (artfully using the Storage Hutch as the cabinet).

And there’s a SECOND apothecary cabinet made from that same hutch (this time without that top scalloped trim): Mini Potions and Herbology Cabinet by Shannon Cooper (more info on that artwork is way below at the bottom of this newsletter).

Read on for lots of eye candy and tips… plus both supply lists are just a portion of the items in today’s sale collection)! Don’t forget the sale COUPON below for an extra 20% off everything in the sale collection.

First, let’s talk about the beautiful Wise Woman’s Apothecary Cabinet that Teri Calia made (with the Storage Hutch and chest of drawers. To start, I’ll quote some of Teri’s intro:

The Oxford Dictionary defines “wise woman” as a woman considered to be knowledgeable in matters such as herbal healing, magic charms, or other traditional lore. That is the kind of woman I envision using this apothecary cabinet.

She would keep all of her herbs and other ingredients in well labeled, tightly covered, glass jars so nothing would be misplaced or misused.

She would have lots of books, scrolls, and papers to fill up those two large drawers, and yes, sometimes, to leave stacked on the worktop. Her mortar and pestle would be well used and perhaps a bit dented.

And note: Teri has included a tutorial on how she made the open book (with a teal blue bookmark) on top of her work table, using pages and covers from her own Tiny Little Grimoires Collage Sheet.

I love all the glass jars covered with cloth, tied with a string and wax seal. Plus the skulls she used as drawer pulls in the photo above.

Here’s the link to Teri’s blog post. Remember to use THIS supply list link as we moved the site since her original posts.

Here’s a short intro to Shannon’s amazing Mini Potions and Herbology Cabinet:

Hallowe’en is creeping up, I can feel it in the air! Actually, it is still suffocatingly hot here so maybe it’s just wishful thinking. But that doesn’t mean Hallowe’en crafting has to wait! I made a potions cabinet from a 4″ x 4″ Storage Hutch, but left off the top scalloped portion and used it by itself vs. attaching it to a set of drawers. So maybe it is more like a potions cubby. Whatever it is, it held a whole bunch of stuff!

A whole bunch of stuff is right! Beside being filled to overflowing with tiny bottles & jars & magic books, Shannon did a wonderful job aging everything to look well-used (and frankly grungy).

Read more in Shannon’s blog post. And/or see her expansive supply list (all those tiny bottles)!
