Take a Peep into the Old Gardener's Backyard

Whoo Hoo - We Have a Video!
I get very excited when the technical half of Nostalgia in Miniature Workshops (Celia) does something whizzy and clever!
So do please take a look at the super video of our new Spring workshop.(And put your speakers on as there's music too.)
To make it really simple's the first one  over there on the right>>>>>>>>

Round The Back Of The Old Gardener's Cottage Workshop is to be held on Saturday 26th April, 10.30am - 4.30pm  at Bicester Avenue Garden Centre, Oxford Road, OX25 2NY(Junction 9 off M40)

The elderly gardener and his wife have lived in the old cottage for half a century and it's fair to say that the backyard behind the cottage and the old lean-to, with its mossy terracotta tiled roof, has seen better days.  However it shelters him from inclement weather as he goes about his pottering; pricking out seedlings on the salvaged battered table, planting up herbs for the kitchen as well as favourite  flowers for his wife in old pots and reclaimed containers.  To keep her happy he's filled a traditional hanging basket with lovely nasturtiums and it swings in the breeze from the rafters.
The places are limited so if you feel tempted to create your very own small scene in either 1/12th or 1/24th scale, do get in touch.  All the details, Booking Form and Special Group Discount Offer are up on the Nostalgia In Miniature website.

Wearing my own 'day job' Coombe Crafts hat, I've been working on a tiny new 1/48th hand-built cottage in a rural setting and another teeny weeny shop. I'll show you pictures soon, and both will be on sale first at The Thame Dolls House and Miniature Fair on Saturday 22nd February.

Thanks for looking
