(Well it excites me!!) Spring also means a fun day out at Miniatura.
In between punching out hundreds of paper flower shapes, measuring, cutting, counting, card, pots and bits of string.......for our Nostalgia in Miniature Workshop on April 26th, I nip out into the garden for an hour or so to hack back the undergrowth and take some pictures of the spring flowers.

It's lovely for us to be on the visitor side of a fair for a change and great to catch up with very talented friends who had been working hard all weekend. My impression was that the fair was smaller, not as interesting as in the past with some important makers missing, and not very busy.
It is always very inspiring however, and terrific to see quality artisans. To mention just two amongst many, ArtofMini.com had a beautiful stand with so much to love, and The Glorious Twelfth had the most exciting and quirky half timbered period houses I've seen in ages.
I treated myself to a beautiful pot of cinnerarias from Jan Southerton - The Flower Lady and another of Ellie de Lacy's faux books with beautiful marbled covers. Super day out!!
Thank you for looking
