I've been meaning to make one of these for myself for quite a while.

I made both the shelving unit and the table from grey board and dowels. Used lots of charms ( Mistress Jennie gave me some awesome charms when we visited her in 2017) to make various magical devices. An old earring made the crystal ball, some free online printables for the newspaper and books. (I particularly love-when muggles attack- )
The magic wand is made from a toothpick with some very fine leather cord glued on. The wee bottles were filled with various things and labels glued on.

I had a mini flowerpot and cut a branch of an old plastic tree to make the mandrake. The magic mirror was a few bits and bobs glued together.

I'm most proud of the leather bound books. I made them with watercolor paper and real leather. They are removable from the shelves and each one is filled with magic spells and images. One is a herbal and so has tiny plant pictures. The broom is made with twigs from my garden.

Miniature perfection!  I love all the tiny bits you used.  The leather bound books are amazingly detailed.  Nicely done!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Yes you should! and the little hour glass. Can you believe that it was 2017 when you gave them to me, in your house. It seems like a lifetime ago!
