A Very Generous Donation!

Fresh back from my eldest son's wedding in Liverpool on Saturday, even though I'm still on cloud nine as it was a truly beautiful and magical day, am slowly beginning to catch up. I have to say that it's been a rather long time since I 've ever partied until nearly 2.00am in the morning and will probably be rather a long time until I'll ever do again but was fun!!!

This gorgeous "mother of the groom" bouquet sat on my lap all the way back from Liverpool as our car was so jam packed with luggage (and people) there was nowhere else it could go...... good job I don't suffer from hay fever!lol to something else rather lovely. Followers of KT Miniatures Journal will be aware that every year I help co-ordinate fundraising for the Breast Cancer Campaign charity at the annual Thame Dolls House & Miniatures Fair which is held every February. Well apparently.....after reading about our charity auction winner in the latest issue of Dolls House & Miniatures Scene Magazine, miniature artist Ryan Terry of Petite-art got in touch as he felt compelled to generously donate  a painting to the next charity raffle to be held at Thame Fair 2013!!!  
Monet's Bar At The Folies Bergere Painted By Ryan Terry Of Petite Art - to be a prize at the 2013 Thame Fair Breast Cancer Campaign Grand Raffle
Sadly Terry has lost both his parents to cancer and consequently wishes to help raise money for a cancer charity through his paintings. So huge thanks to Terry for this donation. It will be put away safely until February 23rd 2013 which is when the next Thame Fair will take place.

Castle Drogo which will now be residing in my 1930s Hobbies House
Recently he has been painting several Devon landmarks and guess which landmark he has only just recently completed......yep, Castle Drogo! If you read the posting before this one on here, you will see the significance. So now thanks to Terry, I have my very own miniature painting of Castle Drogo which is destined for one of the rooms in my 1930s Hobbies House. Sometimes things are just meant to be, don't you think?

In fact Terry tells me that he currently also has a painting up for grabs on Ebay to help fundraise for Breast Cancer Campaign. So please do click on the following link and place a generous bid if you can - it's for a worthy cause

The raffle page for the Thame Fair 2013 charity raffle will go live on KT Miniatures website late autumn but if meanwhile you wish to view more of Terry's work, please click on the following link:
