The story so far…

If you're a regular visitor around these parts, you may be wondering where in the hell I've been. Well, despite Google searches to the contrary, The Witch at OneandSeventy is not dead. Ha Ha! OK, maybe I'm not THAT famous! But I am nevertheless still very much alive....

You may have gathered by now I’m rather fond of an apothecary. Indeed, no witch worth her salt would be without one, be it a full-on cabinet stocked with potion bottles or a miniature display version, purpose-made to sit inside said cabinet. Well now, there’s a new...

The skies are blue and the sun is shining. Surely it can’t possibly be a Bank Holiday? And yet, here it is. Easter has arrived and to celebrate, I’ve made a couple of Mixed Media Eggs to add to my growing collection. Why is Easter late this year? Making it to the...

Victorian Cameos with a dark twist

The gallery wall in the OneandSeventy Dining Room has new additions. Do you see them? They may be small, but they are no less mighty! Not to mention, SO easy to make. My Victorian Cameos have a skullalicious dark twist and were inspired by frames I found languishing...

Creepy Crying Mask

When my Dressing Table mirror fell off the bedroom wall in the wee hours giving me a bloody heart attack, my first thought was “Great! I could just use 7 years' bad luck.” But as fate would have it luck was on my side, as it gave me a stylishly creeptacular mask idea....

DIY Taxidermy Butterfly Box

Last summer, I discovered several dead butterflies in an outside room. Tragically, they’d found their way in, but didn’t make it back out. Most were closed, but there was one that was still open and fully intact. I try not to think what a horrific death that must have...

Mother’s Day Mixed Media Canvas

In many countries, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May but here in the UK, Mother’s Day falls in March which this year, is next weekend. However, like many extraneous seasonal events, I won’t be celebrating. Although this time, it’s not because I...

Crystal Storage and Keepsake Box

Do you practice magic? I bet you do. After all, Magic is all around us. All of the time. Every single day. You don’t need to wait for Halloween to tap into its power, JK Rowling proved that. But as much as I adore Harry Potter I am constantly in awe of the real thing....

Dark Fairy Tales Book with free download

Are you a fan of fairy tales? I’m not talking fluffy unicorns here. On no. The true origins of fairy tales are often much darker and way more macabre than Disney would have you believe. I mean, who cuts off their toes to fit into a pair of shoes to attract a prince?...

Hallowmas AKA Halloween meets Christmas 2018

Putting away Halloween this year was an epic task. Not for me, you understand, but Beloved was aching for a week after rearranging the attic to accommodate all those boxes and then lugging them into the loft. It’s also worth mentioning that he packed every single one...
