At the Hogwarts' (Part 1)



I just recently realized I have hardly ever shown you any of my handmade miniatures! This is why, in my following blog entries, I would like to introduce some of the little animals, plants, food and household items, etc. which I have made over the past years from fimo clay. 


Today I would like to invite you to join me as we take a look at the home of another of Riverside's families. We're at the home of Hester and Hamish Hogwart. They live here with their three little piglets Hattie, Hope and Henry, which I have already introduced to you in my blog entry from January 2013  called "Halloween in January". 




This is Hester Hogwart's "office", so to speak. It is here where she reads people's palms, communicates with ghosts or sees into the future. 



Hester Hogwart is a witch, you must know. This also explains why there is always some sort of thick, dark potion brewing on the stove...



This is Hester sitting at the dining room table. She went into the woods today to collect some snails. Her children like to play with them and they make a great addition to her husband's favourite dish: grub and termite mush



And here are Henry, Hattie and Hope. They prefer to play with snails instead of eating them.



The triplets can't reach the bowl, so Hester places it on the floor in front of them.



Then she goes into her office, to a large green plant placed next to the red armchair and bends down. What is she doing?? Why is she whispering something to the plant? Slowly, the leaves inside the pot start to move and a raspy voice says,



"Yum, yum!" It's Ruffle, the Hogwart's talking plant and he is letting Hester know he is hungry. He might look a little scary to you, because he has two white fangs sticking out of his mouth, like a vampire, but actually Ruffle is as friendly as any other household pet and he wouldn't harm a fly...



Ruffle's favourite food is raw mushrooms. As you can see, Hester is kneeling down to feed him one. 



Now she takes a seat in her red armchair. Ruffle is munching away on his mushroom while she gets into the right frame of mind to receive her next customer.



TO BE CONTINUED





The white pot on the stove, the bowl of snails, Ruffle the pet dog - I mean plant! :D - and the mushroom were all made by me from Fimo clay.





Please leave a comment below.
Or a mushroom for Ruffle.

Thank you very much!

  1. Muss ich eigentlich extra erwähnen, dass mir Hester und ihre Familie ganz besonders sympathisch sind??? Es geht doch nichts über einen großen Pott auf dem Ofen, in dem Es-ist-besser-nicht-zu-wissen-was-drin-ist vor sich hin brodelt... *lach* Ich bin mir nur noch nicht sicher, ob ich Ruffle die Nummer mit "Ich tue keiner Fliege etwas zuleide" wirklich abnehme... *grins* - aber ich werde mal in Sachen Pilz mit meinen Hexen und Zauberern reden. Jedenfalls bin ich schon sehr gespannt, was es noch alles über die Familie Hogwart zu erfahren gibt.

    Liebe Grüße

    1. Hallo Birgit,

      Ich habe mir schon gedacht, dass die Hogwarts Dir gefallen könnten, als ich neulich sah, dass Du einen Hexen-Zauber-Drachen-Faible hast! :))

      Ja, das mit Ruffle muss sich noch zeigen, aber auf jeden Fall scheint er kein "Häschenfresser" wie Snakeweed zu sein! :D
