Sharing a love of Dolls House Miniatures - and making time for other creative crafts and the garden.

Let's Look at Some Furniture for a Change!!

Pretty obviously anyone reading my blog regularly can see I'm hooked on character dolls and anything to do with a real one or the miniature version......

You're probably bored rigid reading that Coombe Crafts has been around for decades...sadly I'm grey haired so it's true. However it's never quite been just about just the characters, although they are top of my personal list and I never get tired of creating new characters whether they be 1/12th, 1/24th or the ultimate challenge 1/48th - we also make the 'interesting things to go with them'. (That's the phrase in the advertising folks!!)

I'm fortunate in having an 'other half' who can translate my seemingly random ideas involving 'wood' into something really super and who creates amazingly detailed small things without any help from me whatsoever!!! Sometimes I get to titivate a few of them.....

So in the interests of fairness and equality and all that jazz - this week it's about the furniture - 1/24th this time. Most of it is featured on the website and if you email me I can give additional details or prices as required.

Here goes.....oh...yes I've sneaked in a little maid to dust the Edwardian-deco-Macintosh inspired furniture and 'interesting things'.....and a couple of plants......

And finally - as they say in the build up to important announcements - I'm thrilled to be able to announce that Celia Thomas and I, who in collaboration make up Nostalgia in Miniature Workshops, are to hold our first Full-day workshop next March at the truly inspirational venue of Waterperry Gardens in Oxfordshire. This is one of my dream world-famous gardens and wonderful places, so you can imagine how excited we are - for full details and also for those of the half-day workshops this year click HERE!
Our next one is "Down the Little Garden Path" - it'll be different - and a fun day if the last one is anything to go by.

Can't resist it......picture of one of Waterperry's glorious, seemingly endless perennial flower borders coming up......

Thank you for looking.

All looks very nice, but the wheelbarrow looks amazing for 1/24th scale, you must have blooming good eyesight.
