Preparations Are Now In Full Swing....

Am pleased to say that for the moment, my nursing duties are over and the patient is doing well!! And now I have to concentrate on getting stock prepared for the forthcoming annual Thame Dolls House & Miniatures Fair which is taking place in just over 2 weeks time on Saturday 22nd February. 

Because of this, I will not be listing any further vintage or handmade stock to KT Miniatures website until the fair is over. Very shortly I shall begin to put up details of the handmade and antique/vintage stock that will be available on the day.

This is just one of the items that I completed only yesterday- for the dolls house scullery or shed!
Needless to say that for the next few days I shall be undertaking a spot of intensive creating. Everything I am making is in 1/12th scale and suitable to be used in both vintage and modern reproduction dolls houses. Gradually, completed items are emerging from my workroom and it feels utterly exhilarating to be creating once more...I absolutely love it! Due to the antique and vintage side of my business taking up so much time these days, I'm just not able to do as much creating as I would like.
I have also been creating various shelves with vintage packaging for scullery or shed, etc.
For full details of who will be at the Thame event, click on the following link:

As usual there will be lots of charity tables in aid of Breast Cancer Campaign, including the infamous Grand Raffle (with lots of prizes  from professional artisans), Sales Table (with amazing new & vintage miniature bargains) and Thame Dolls House Club (MTM) Miniature Tombola. If you have any unwanted miniature items that you can donate to the Sales Table then simply bring on the day and hand over to the team of volunteers on the Sale Table. All will be welcome.
PS. My completed (hahaha-still got a bit to do) Twinkle Twinkle Little Star seen on earlier postings CLICK HERE, will also be on display as part of the Market Town Miniaturists (MTM) Exhibition.  Hopefully the night sky will light up behind that window!

Hello Celia,
I am happy your family member is doing better. Have fun getting ready for the fair. The cabinet is wonderful and so realistic.
Big hug,

Congratulations on earning you nursing badge by showing your ability to cure your patient!
I hope you and Robin have a wonderful day on the 22nd. Be glad, be very glad that this one-handed not very competent jobbing builder is not able to attend!
Grandpa has put a very low offer on another house to do up. I think it may be a case of hope over experience, unless he has a more competent builder than I am in mind.....
