Great gifts from the Dangerous Mezzo and some floor update

As you may remember I was one of the lucky three persons who won Nina's give-away. Yesterday the postman delivered a fat envelope to me and inside I found not only one book but two! Look how beautiful they are!
Wow! What a great great surprise! And they both are just perfect for the Potion Master's office! The large open book is of plants and herbs. The smaller one was made by Nina specially for me - or Severus I should say ;) - as it is bound in black snakeskin with green and silver gems! The colours of Slytherin! Both books have gold and silver gilt-edged pages! Superb surprise! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Nina!!!!!!

And here is a little floor update. First "stones" placed and glued down to the base.

Ah..... all of them - that I prepared so far - glued down now and still half of the office's floor to cover! Grrr... back to that thick cardboard cutting....

And I see a few new Followers! A very very warm WELCOME to all of you! Hope you will all have fun here!

I'm glad you like the books, Ewa -- I had such fun making them, especially the black snakeskin one :)

When I was making tiles for the castle, I couldn't BELIEVE how many of the little darlings were needed! It just seemed to go on and on, so I sympathise, but I think your floor will be dazzling when it's all done ...

Ewa...what do you think of your gothic window? Is it realistic enough? I will be needing one for a castle roombox in a workshop in Sept. A window like yours is the only type I can find that's not too big but I wish I could find one that's more realistic looking...but so far no luck
