Take a Look in Our Festive Dustbin!!

Sometimes the postman brings bills and chuck-away advertising - and sometimes there's a bonus!!

This was the bonus - my copy of Dolls House and Miniature Scene - Issue 211 January - which includes Part 1 of the 'How-To' diorama - On a Cold and Frosty Morning....after the night before - which Celia Thomas and I have created wearing our Nostalgia in Miniature Workshops hats. The dustbin in my title features heavily, full as it is of festive rubbish after a super Christmas!!

The actual 1/12th diorama itself is now available to buy in a Sealed Bid Auction with the proceeds donated to Breast Cancer Campaign and you can find all the details on our website, just click Here. We know that this is a charity supported by many people and are delighted that our smaller efforts at the individual Workshops throughout the year are so kindly and generously supported by those attending.

The magazine itself is also a terrific issue, full as it is of great projects and features!! Enjoy!

It's been a funny week......some work being done on the house has rather interrupted my miniature work and I'm conscious that Christmas is coming far too fast....meanwhile our last Workshop of the year is on Sunday, so I'm back to obsessively counting miniature long-johns, bags of sand and santa hats. Still - I'm promised Mulled wine! Hey ho!

Thanks for Looking.
