Downsizing & Work in Progress

Goodness me it's been a long time since my last post! Yes I'm still here - got several excuses for not blogging - namely work, family issues, our new little business venture along with all the usual excuses!  However miniatures are always there in my mind!

Hubby and I managed to get to Miniatura and I purchased some great items for Lake View but ......... we kept going back to Petite Properties where I was totally taken with their new cottage, Pumpkin Cottage  in 1/24 scale!!! I have never done anything in this scale before but every time we go to a fair I always gaze longingly at Petite Properties stand.  Now I am the proud owner of Pumpkin Cottage and thoroughly enjoying working on it.  I have a peculiar feeling it won't be the last of Petite Properties projects!   

Pumpkin Cottage - work in progress!

I also purchased some great items for Lake View- two old fashioned car badges - AA & RAC from Truly Scrumptious and I've put these in two frames I got from Mitchy Moo Miniatures.   These have gone into the top room of Lake View which has seen a lot of changes.  I bought the fabulous chair from Mitchy Moo Miniatures as well as the crate you can see which has a piece of sliced agate on the top to make a table - this will have a light in it soon.   

I'd ordered a floating kitchen island and pop up socket from Elizabeth at ELF Miniatures and the floating island is partially built and hopefully finished this weekend.   I can't wait to see it lit up.

  1. I think 1/24 scale is scary, look forward to seeing your built. I often look at my library, I have everything to make it up, but the floor needs doing 1st, one day soon..............
