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

All in Blue.....

The characters I'm showing you today happen to all be in blue uniform, although very different ones....and I thought a nice photograph of the super bluebells out in my garden would just be perfect to finish off the blog......but it's raining...AGAIN!!

Two lovely ladies commissioned the 1/24th policeman and postman - and were kind enough to wait until I got around to making them. Both are nicely settled in their new homes and were made very welcome.

This next chap is in 1/12th scale and you'll spot the fact that he's only just been finished by the muddle which is the workbench. He's dressed as a World War 2 ARP Warden in his overalls, (put on quickly over his ordinary clothes). Clearly he's looking for his tin hat and gas mask. He's due to be delivered on Sunday at our next Nostalgia in Miniature Workshop, so I'm hoping his new owner won't check out my blog before.....

Celia (KT Miniatures) and I are looking forward to the first one in the new series of workshops - The Little Vintage Hall - and this time we've moved inside after the series of garden vignettes. The old hall was built in Queen Victoria's reign and is at the heart of our imaginary rural village; we meet it in the 1930s, a little down at heel and in need of being spruced up.

I'm sure it will be as much fun as the previous workshops and we shall be delighted at the effort and individual inspiration the particpants will bring to their projects. There are more pictures on our joint Nostalgia in Miniature blog and details of forthcoming workshops on our website.
Our very mini sales table which is put together specially for the day will feature some authentic-looking and quirky items that are suited to the period....must get working!

Thank you for looking
