The New Kids on the Blog and Magical Snakes Heads

I seem to be in a children phase - so here they are in both 1/12th and 1/24th scale.

This brother and sister will be joining their grandparents - who were sculpted last year. It's always slightly daunting to work from photographs of real people, and while I don't offer 'portrait' sculpts, the idea is to catch the 'essence' and general characteristics. These dolls are in 1/12th scale.

This little Victorian miss is in 1/24th scale and will eventually be part of an outdoor scene I believe.

Congratulations to Celia Thomas of KT Miniatures who has topped 100 Followers on her blog - she has a fab. giveaway of some her lovely vintage books. Do take a look and while you're there, her website is a trip back in time - pure nostalgia!!

And in my garden (sorry can't resist it) I'm thrilled that the Snakes Head Fritillaries are beginning to naturalise in my wild patch!! They're just coming out and are beautiful. If you're in the south, a very special place around this time of year is North Meadow, Cricklade, Wiltshire, which I think I'm right, has the largest population of wild fritillaries in this country - acres of this magical wild flower in ancient water meadows. I took this photograph there a couple of years ago.

Thank you for looking.
