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

....Works in Progress

I must admit that I am rather fond of photos that make it look as if I'm working.....well I am, and it also saves a heck of a lot of time setting up and staging when time is short..... so, herewith, works in progress!

With the back end of last year being just a bit disastrous, we're ploughing away trying to catch up with stock (we have a fair towards to end of Feb.) and also fulfill orders for REALLY patient customers.

The carpentry half of Coombe Crafts has been driven in from the workshop (shed) by the extreme cold and has taken up residence in our conservatory - handy for the kettle and a good deal warmer!!
This lovely 1/48th scale four-poster bed is nearly ready for a polish.

Meanwhile I've been concentrating for the last week on tiny dolls in the same scale - they're needed for both the fair and the aforesaid patient customers.....

And...with my Nostalgia in Miniature hat on, I'm having fun with climbing plants and Arbours - or do I mean Pergolas -  while Celia is immersed in shabby chic pre-war garden furniture. Our pictures will be up on the blog as soon as we've put it all together. We still have some places on our next Workshop at the wonderful Waterperry Gardens on Sunday 7th April.  All the details are on our website.  

Thank you for looking - and welcome to new Followers, who I can see are really talented ladies. I'll catch up with Blogs 'anon'.

Dear Robin,
That bed looks great. I only work in 1:12 scale. So it's a big bed.
Greetings Dorien

Love the tiny wee dolls Robin.

I'm working on a selection of tiny doll's dolls for Thame too... let's hope they fly off our stands!
