Thanks to the warm wet weather, the garden is very colourful - also full of very healthy weeds which require serious attention. The beautiful apple blossom I hope means we might get more than the two little apples we had last year.
My great mate Celia Thomas, and I have had our heads down working on the kits for our Nostalgia In Miniature summer workshops which are just around the corner. The Early 1900s Little German Style Shop is very versatile so we're looking forward to seeing what kind of emporia they all become.
Talking of workshops and the prototypes we create - we do run out of space so a few get sold - mostly we keep them. Celia has taken ownership of last year's 1/12th scale Little Vintage Toyshop and enhanced it with her own collection of antique and vintage toys - I love it!!!

Last weekend, KDF - as we all fondly call it - was super, duper, inspiring. Actually I run out of superlatives and don't dare list all the stands that inspired - just too many!! The Perfection In Miniatures (PIM )exhibits were particulary wonderful and I can't imagine how the judges were able to make their decisions. Pictures and details on KDF website.
I'll settle for showing you what I was able to purchase - rather more than usual thanks to a very special birthday present. Thank you 'girls'.
