The holiday is a pleasant memory - so back to work, some new characters and miniature news.
I mentioned in an earlier blog that I was working on a little 1/24th scale nun - she's now been delivered and Carmen has sent some super pictures of her in her new setting.
A rather jollier lady, in the same scale, is an old fashioned flower lady who would be selling her flowers in the local market - fun to make and a change from....you guessed it....another little gardener!
I'm looking forward to Haddenham Dolls House Exhibition which takes place in Haddenham Village Hall on Saturday 14th November - just a couple of miles from Thame. Easy to get to by road or rail - 280 Oxford/Aylesbury bus or train to Thame and Haddenham Parkway which is close by away with taxi and bus stop just outside.
As well as impressive Dolls House Club displays that are always interesting and inspiring there are several sales tables and a splendid raffle raising funds for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and Thames Valley Air Ambulance. I shall be there with my Coombe Crafts stand alongside KT Miniatures - Celia Thomas who is Mrs KT being not only my chum, but partner in Nostalgia in Miniature Workshops which will have a table too, no doubt squeezed in the middle! Will be a hectic day but lots of fun.
On our Workshop stand we'll display of some of the unique projects we have created over the last four years and, simply because we are both fast running out of storage space, there will be a few of the unique prototypes for sale.
Thanks to Felicity and Ron who are the organisers of The Thame Dolls House and Miniatures Fair for continuing this special event following in the very capable footsteps of Freda and George Dorrell who ran it for many years.
Nostalgia in Miniature Workshop news for 2016!! We were thrilled with the success and popularity of this year's 'The Little Vintage Toyshop' workshops and are busy working on The Early 1900s Little German Style Shop for next year.
If you'd like to know more about this one which will be in both 1/24th and 1/12th scales again, come and have a chat at Haddenham or contact either of us if you would like to go on our Reserve List. This does not commit you to taking up a place but means that before booking is opened on the website in January you will offered a first opportunity to book. Further details can be found on our blog if click HERE.
Thanks for looking.
