In the pink

When I said I was going to spend some time today tidying up my studio, I meant my full sized one...Oh well, it was fun playing with a colour I don't use very often.
And try out my new bottles of paint!

Long overdue

Tonight I'm (finally) working on a swap which was due three months ago. Sorry Neomig...
(And here's a photo showing how mini reflects reality. Except, oddly, there's less colour in the mini version!)

Show and tell

Yesterday was the ACT Miniature Enthusiasts Show. I almost didn't go, as I'm not feeling very enthusiastic about miniatures at all, even with the recent arrival of miniature gifts and swaps.

But go I did. The display was very small this year, with nothing that caught my eye enough to photograph.

I did buy a few things, the most expensive being a miniature Nibbs:plus lots of containers, some ferny stuff to make pot plants out of and some plain white vases that I'll probably paint with nail varnish.

I do like little drawers...

I find miniatures everywhere

Last week I was invited to a special sale evening at local furniture store Domayne.

I'm sure you know the sort of thing: glasses of bubbles, trays of yummy canap├ęs, talks and presentations by "famous" people off the telly and special "on the night" discounts.

And freebies. In my goody bag was a mobile phone holder advertising
Classique outdoor furniture. But, alas, it's 1/6th scale.
Do any of you work in 1/6th? If so, would you like two (my friend donated hers to the cause) rather well made outdoor chairs for your Blythe or Barbie scene? (It looks like the name plate can be unscrewed and prised off) I'll post anywhere in the world.
