It's All In The Name!

I've just put the finishing touches to a little 1/48th scale cottage which will be on sale first at The Thame Dolls House and Miniature Fair and I'm trying to come up with just the right name for reminds me of pretty old cottages alongside chalk streams in Wiltshire.

The old cottage is in need of a new family and some TLC

The roof is removeable to allow easy access
I've finally got my act together and been working on some new 1/24th scale characters which again will get their first outing at the fair.  I make rather more elderly characters as a rule, but thought it would be a change to have a couple of younger ladies to start me off - there will be more. And at last some 1/48th scale bodies are waiting to be clothed.

 In other news our Little Vintage Toyshop Workshop is fully booked for both June dates.  We're both delighted and overwhelmed at the interest.  If there is enough interest we would consider re-running this one in September. Take a look at the Nostalgia in Miniature website for details. 

Thank you for looking

I love the new younger characters you've made, Robin. A name for the new, Mill Pond Cottage? Chalky Cottage, no, too dull......I guess ;)
