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

Looking Forward to the Fair...nearly ready!

I hope that even though you might not be visiting Thame Dolls House and Miniature Fair this Saturday, you've enjoyed seeing some of the  items that we shall be taking with us......and here are the last ones I've photographed this week.
We're all very conscious that many of you are having a dreadful time with floods and other damage to homes and land at the moment and hope that things will improve for you before too long. In Thame we are very lucky that the flood plain is working well and the roads and of course the Leisure Centre, the venue for the fair, are clear.

If you are coming along, we are on  stand 35 at the end of the hall nearest the main double doors, do come and say 'hello'.
The full list of exhibitors and a floor plan are now up on the Thame Dolls House and Miniature Fair website together with details of the venue and travel suggestions.  It's going to be a super fair!!

O.K. - now for the last few pictures folks.
Mini-water features are such fun to make - just the right containers make the difference too.

1/12th scale, with the duck and the smaller 1/24th scale in the half barrel

I have to fit in some gardening accessories....and birds.

1/12th and 1/24th scale robins (how can I leave them out!) and the blue tit

Just a few examples of our very varied stock of original hand-crafted 1/24th furniture.

Photgraphs don't do justice to detail of these tiny 1/24th pieces.  We work together on these - both the furniture and tiny teapots are all individually crafted so we only make a few.

Victorian style 'glass' domes are all quite different, either containing tiny feathered birds, butterflies or shells.

Finally our scruffy parrots!

We've made big reductions on remaining stocks of 1/12th furniture (although we still make on commission), so there are bargains.  If you've spotted something that appealed to you in the recent blogs I'm happy to let you know whether it, or something similar, is still available, if you email me after the fair.

Thank you for looking

What fun! I can see that it is going to take the rest of my life to fully equip Lilly Irene's house (the 1910 house). Love the little Robin on a bucket.
Enjoy the fair!

I'd be there with bells on and buy some of your wee birds if my broomstick was in working order ;)
