Autumn Crafting with Hester Hogwart

 



Last week I purchased some beautiful autumn decorations for humans and sylvanians and decided to ask Hester to meet me for a crafting session. The little green wreath is Hesters.



This (slightly larger...) brown one is mine. :)



And here are the items I chose to decorate it with. Some white and brown mushrooms, different sized autumn leaves, two branches of blackberries, some light green lanterns and, last but not least, a furry red fox.



Here is the end result. Hester is actually sitting on fox's spot, but he didn't mind, since I told him it was only for one photo.



Now back to Hester's wreath. She started off with these three lovely round pine cones. 



Then she fixed some fiery coloured red and orange leaves onto the wreath. By then it had started to become dark, so we turned on the electric lights.



All the little woodland creatures that had been bustling around the room climbed onto the table (or onto Hester) to have a look at her creation. Hester had topped the leaves with a small orange pumpkin, a fake brown hedgehog and some beautiful toadstools she had once received from Birgit.



After a while Hester got up and started to spread dry leaves all over the floor for the animals to play in. Edgar the crow made a marvellous "crinkle-and-crunch" sound as he stepped onto one of the leaves with his big toe. One of the mice decided to play hide-and-seek. The little grey one chose to stay on top of Hester's head where it was nice and soft.



But there had to be an end to all the crafting and playing sometime, so when Hester started to clean up, the animals knew it was time to go back outside into the wood for the night. Except the little grey mouse. It decided to stay on top of Hester's head where it was nice and warm. Hester didn't mind at all.



Love and regards

from Hester

 and me.

  1. This is so clever. I love these Hogwarts stories about Hester and her family's adventures. (Big Harry potter fan:) The wreaths are so cute. Love to know where you got your autumn leaves from?

    1. Hester and her children love Harry Potter too!! :)

      She actually picked up all those leaves in the forest. ( Or maybe I got them for her at a large German crafts store... ;) )

  2. A lovely autumn for Hester and her friends. Hester is a very generous person. No wonder little grey mousy was allowed to stay where it was soft and cozy.

    1. I agree with you, Drora, Hester has a very giving attitude!

      Mousy was very comfortable sitting on her head and only Hester knows for how long she stayed. :)

  4. You have some brilliant miniatures. The mouse sat on Hester's head made me laugh.

    1. Thanks. :)

      Actually, the mouse might have made Hester laugh too, because she is a little bit ticklish behind her ears...

  5. Jahaaaa... die Bastelsaison beginnt wieder! ;O) Und wie schön, dass Hester und Du Euch gleich zu einer gemeinsamen Bastelsession verabredet habt, so macht es doch gleich viel mehr Spaß. Tolle Kränze habt Ihr gemacht, die sehen beide sehr schön aus. Und natürlich freut Birgit sich auch besonders darüber, dass ihre Pilze bei diesem schönen Projekt zum Einsatz gekommen sind.

    Liebe Grüße
    Flutterby und Birgit

    1. Danke, Fluby! Es hat wirklich grossen Spass gemacht mit Hester!! Und Birgits Pilze sind bei ihr schon mehrfach zum Einsatz gekommen, fällt mir gerade auf. Bei "Paranormal Hogtivity" hatten sie auch schon Verwendung... im Anti-Poltergeist Zauber. :D
