In the back of my mind is the fact that the totally wonderful Thame Dolls House and Miniature Fair is (it feels like) just around the corner.......big plug coming up! If you can make it, you'll love it!!
If someone is in need of a nurse with red hair, and the one you have has grey curls. what can you do? Answer: remove hat, get curly with some red hair and change it!!
This exercise was also a reminder that DOLL STOCK IN ALL SCALES IS LOW...and the Thame Fair is 'just around the corner'. Am officially in panic mode now.
Back in late summer when I was confidently 'thinking ahead' I started to build a 1/48th single story shop and a quirky cottage to be set deep in the countryside........in odd moments since then I've been finishing them, with a major push after Christmas. These must be the longest-build tiny dwellings ever. However they are now finished and will be on sale first at, you guessed it, The Thame Fair.
I'll show you the cottage next time, but here's the little shop. I really wanted a change of colour so decided on a soft lavender/mauve for the paintwork and to 'promote' the lavender idea, have a pot of lavender at the door and call it... 'Miss Lavender's.......'
This is where I've hit a snag!!! Hopefully someone will want to give it a new home and may want an Emporium or a Dress Shop, or a Flower Shop or a Corner Shop or a Tea Shop.......all would work beautifully so I'll just leave it I think and not give it a sign over the door this time.

Thank you for looking
