Baalatova's new corner table.

Hello dear readers,

It's Halloween and time for the witchy spirit.

Baalatova finally managed, with a lot of effort and magic, to precede and shorten the long waiting queue for the entrance to the Ghost Academy for Skeletones.  Since the Skellies left for their training, she has not heard anything from them.  She misses them and is sad and moody.

Solly the little angel bear with the kindest of hearts, tried to console her by suggesting that a new piece of furniture for her potions concoctions may brighten her mood.  Which led up to Baalatova demanding that I quickly create a corner table for her potions. She can do it herself by a clap of her hands and some magic words, but prefers to give the task to me.

In order not to disappoint the kind hearted little Solly, I used what I had at hand to create the table:

Two pizza separating triangle tables; a crochet chain about 17 cm long; a piece of cardboard; acrylic paint; 3 metal skeleton heads; and tacky glue.


Before I glued the two tables' surfaces together I drew a line around one surface on the cardboard.  

I cut two cardboard templates and glued them together.  Later on, after gluing the crochet chain around
it, it was glued on the top legs of the structure.  (See photo below.)

After I glued a skeleton head on each leg, I painted overall with acrylic light brown.

Baalatova came to inspect and seems rather pleased.

Here she is. Inspecting the table from another angle.  Solly also looks satisfied that his plan came together.

My friend Birgit, who created Solly, sent me, a long time ago, all the potion bottles which are on the table.  They are all made by Birgit herself. Thank you again dear Birgit. This post is a tribute to Birgit, which we all hope to see back soon in Blogsphere.

I wish you, my dear readers, a lovely weekend with blessings.



  1. How could Baalatova not be thrilled?!? The potion table is absolutely marvelous! What an inventive use for the pizza savers, and the way you have cleverly disguised it with skeletons and crochet lace is delightful!
    Birgit's potion bottles are just lovely, and I am reminded what a generous spirit she has and like you, talented hands!

  2. Solly tuvo una gran idea animando a Baalatova a construir una nueva mesa de pociones! Ha quedado preciosa, seguro que la utilizará muchísimo!! Feliz fin de semana Drora!!

  3. I love your little table! Happy Halloween. We don't celebrate it much here in South Africa, but I have heard the orange polymer clay calling my name. Maybe I will sit down on Halloween Eve and make a few just for fun.

  4. Wonderful table perfect for Birgit's potion bottles. No doubt Baalatova was very grateful and felt in a better mood.

  5. Did you know that in one of the potion bottles was a wishing potion? See, your wish was granted - I'm back to blogland... because I would never miss what's going on at Halloween and to see what Baalatova is up to. It's good to see her happy and satisfied with her new table and I'm glad I could make a contribution to it. But I'm even more glad to see that Solly is such a lovely darling - and so are you.


  6. I love the little triangle table! I've never seen triangle pizza spacers before, the only ones we have are round. The potion bottles are wonderful too. Birgit is so talented! I hope Baalatova has a Happy Halloween and so do you!
