Our 1/24th Scale Little German Style Shop is Complete

Such a lovely moment when Celia and I look at each other and nod. Another project prototype is finished and we can embark on the mammoth task of kit making. Time to take a walk in our gardens and enjoy the spring flowers!
And here it is - true the old fashioned scales are not yet in position or the old lovely hanging lamp - but they're made and we're having fun creating a little packaging etc.  The early 1900s German Style shop will be whatever kind of emporium the participants at the workshops choose to make it and there's lots of scope from wonderful hat and frock shops to high class groceries.  We're so looking forward seeing what it and the 1/12th scale version becomes when individuals put their own very personal stamp in it.

If you'd like to see more of this and past projects go to our Nostalgia in Miniature Workshops     
And here are the scales - both scales.

One of the supermarkets has been selling bunches of daffodils with a proportion of the sale price going to charity - what a lovely idea!  Incidentally I'd love to grow some of these in my garden next year - does anyone know the variety??  They're in one of my favourite vintage enamel jugs.

In the garden the spring flowers are a picture - these are  Fritillary uva-vulpa which I've grown in a pot this year but they will move into my wild patch where I already have a lovely group of Snakes-Head Fritillaries establishing really well.

Thanks for looking

Hi Robin! I am nodding along with you! :D Your little German emporium is Adorable with lots of room for the display of merchandise as well as for storage. I LOVE the floor as it has an old world feel to it too! Your hard work has paid off handsomely and I can imagine that your students will be in 7th heaven as they put this kit together and then get to FILL IT UP! :D

Having lived in Austria for a while, I recognize the painted wooden furniture - so typical. Looking forward to seeing what you fill it with. Mini hug,

Once again, wish I were across the pond and able to take a class with you ladies.

I was interested to read about these Fritillary uva-vulpa - had some come up in my garden last year and had no idea where they came from or what they were. They are the strangest looking flowers but interesting.
