For a whole variety of reasons I don't like this month....and it's raining..... and the shops are filling up with Christmas far too early in my book! However miniature work is a very nice distraction and I have another character finished and off to a new home.
You may very well think you've seen this chap before, standing in the field of poppies on the WW1 Scene Celia Thomas and I created. Actually it isn't the same elderly gentleman in his Royal British Legion blazer, but another as close as I could make him to the original for a customer who is building the scene from our How-to instructions in Dolls House and Miniature Scene Magazine. We have heard from a number of people who are inspired to make their own versions of the scene which is very exciting. Of course it would also be wonderful to see finished scenes because everyone will have brought their individual ideas to the concept. If you haven't seen it, go to our Nostalgia in Miniature website for a super video.
I cleared my workspace to work on some 1/16th scale characters, which I make from time to time for those who are vintage/antique dolls house collectors. The challenge of course is that these wonderful old houses vary quite a lot when it comes to scale, as does the furniture, so quite often it's necessary to make minor adjustments when it comes to creating the dolls. They're nearly finished - I'll show you another time.
Thank you for looking
