Faux Halloween Spell Book Prop

Faux Halloween Spell Book Prop

Hello, my name is Sue and I’m a hoarder! (Not the first time I’ve said those words!) And never is my problem more apparent than when we’re moving house. I can’t help it! The thing is, practically everything is in the firing line for The Witch at OneandSeventy...

Victorian Gothic Glam Pumpkin

Victorian Gothic Glam Pumpkin

As you’ll no doubt be painfully aware by now, my style is somewhat eclectic. But if I was to lean towards one particular aesthetic, especially for Halloween, it would have to be moody Gothic. And what better way to celebrate the season than with a Victorian Gothic...

Handmade Victorian Folding Photo Frame

Handmade Victorian Folding Photo Frame

This Victorian Folding Photo Frame was inspired by Gothic TV show, The Frankenstein Chronicles. At least I *think* it was, it might easily have been any number of period dramas. Because I may have a little fixation with Victoriana. The likes of Dickensian,...

Apothecary Book

Apothecary Book

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...

Mixed Media Eggs for Easter and Beyond

Mixed Media Eggs for Easter and Beyond

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

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

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

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...

Crystal Storage and Keepsake Box

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

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?...
