Over the past few weeks you will have seen little snippets of a very special project that both I and Robin Britton, my partner at
have been working on.
We can now reveal the completed scene in its entirety. If you watch the little video below, you will see what it's all about- we are very proud of the result and hope you like it too....(remember to turn your speakers on).
This is a unique scene created in 1/12th scale by us initially as a "how to make project" that will appear in Dolls House & Miniature Scene Magazine in January and February issues 2012.
It is of an old back yard based on an era long before wheelie bins were but a twinkle of the imagination, some five decades ago! The New Year’s Eve party was well and truly over and the remnants of the festive season were crammed into the rusty old dustbin. Much had spilled over into scruffy boxes and onto the crazy paving, with its frozen icy puddles and a dusting of frost. Winter foliage surrounds the scene and a tree, almost bare of all leaves, stands proudly in front of an old weathered fence. Brian the blue tit hungrily tucks into his grub on the bird feeder.
As you can see from the video - this whole scene is now up for auction to raise funds for Breast Cancer Campaign. You can bid online and by post, or in person at both the Haddenham Dolls House Exhibition & Fair (see previous post) where this will be on display and also
In fact the closing date for the Sealed Bid Auction will be at 3.00pm at the Thame Dolls House & Miniatures Fair on Saturday 18th February 2012 and the Thame Town Crier will announce the winner shortly after 3.00pm.
