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

Tuesday, November 19, 2013


Are you thinking of coming along to the Haddenham Dolls House Exhibition and Fair on Saturday - 23rd November at Haddenham Village Hall? It will be a lovely day, and is always very popular.

We shall be there on our Coombe Crafts stand and, with Celia my chum of KT Miniatures on hers, also manning our Nostalgia in Miniature Workshop display featuring all our past projects in both 1/12th and 1/24th scale and bringing details of our exciting new Spring Workshop .  Do come and say hello!

As you can see I'm still in a bit of a muddle, finishing off some last-minute 1/24th scale characters to bring - we shall also be discounting our handmade furniture in 1/12th and 1/24th scale - just for the day.

Our Nostalgia in Miniature Workshop display will feature all of our projects, so the table will be full -  and we shall also have the unique Seaside Scene, created for the Dolls House and Miniature Scene Magazine which we are selling with 50%  of the sale price to Breast Cancer Campaign. We are happy to take offers on the day, so please come and have a chat if you're interested.

'When Father Papered the Parlour....the week before Christmas!'    
The Seaside Scene will be for for sale
I'm sure it will be a splendid day from 10.00am until 4.00pm -  Entrance is £4 for adults and £1 for children and this all goes to the two very important charities, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and Lymphona and Leukaemia Research.

In addition to large displays by four local Dolls House Clubs, there will be three or four others, including a Lego railway, which sounds fun! AND a very special dolls house, beautifully decorated by James Parker and featured in Dolls House and Miniature Scene Magazine is to be sold by Sealed Bid Auction.

If you're looking treat yourself or perhaps buy a Christmas present for a miniaturist friend, there will be a number of traders this year - so lots to choose from!!  Then of course, there's the charity raffle and refreshments....wonderful cake!!

The Village Hall is in the centre of this lovely village and easy to find  (HP17 8EE) just off the main Thame/Aylesbury road - buses run frequently from Aylesbury and Oxford and the Haddenham and Thame Parkway Railway Station is close by.
Sadly this will be the last Haddenham Dolls House Exhibiton  - Freda and George are taking honourable retirement having run it for many years - so let's make it extra special.

Lucie Roper, the Editor of Dolls House and Miniature Scene Magazine has asked me to put up the link for the next exciting project in the WW1 theme - here it is - enjoy!

Thank you for looking

Thank you - we really loved creating it and hope that now it will raise funds for Breast Cancer Campaign

The laptop I tossed down in my excitement over a new dolls' house died so I've been out of the loop. Glad to be back to see your new little characters - all Grandma's and Grandpa's friends and relations fascinate me.
Hope you had a great time at Haddenham!
