All Set For Saturday....Plus A Few Garden Items Of A Miniature Kind!

All kits are complete, instructions are printed and everything's packed for our Round The Back Of The Old Gardener's Cottage Workshop on Saturday. We will be in the Conference Room at Bicester Avenue Garden Centre for the very first time and there is much excitement about this brand new venue.  Any member of the public visiting the garden centre restaurant on Saturday will be able to see us all in there (busy creating no doubt), as the entire wall at one end is basically one massive glass window. Haha....better make sure that we're all on our best behaviour then!
I've  managed to squeeze in a little bit of creativity this week...have made a few 1/12th scale vintage garden related miniatures for our Workshop Sales Table. Some of the vintage style bits and bobs can be seen in the above photos...all suitable to be used round the back of the old gardener's cottage! I have included some of my vintage looking cream/green enamelware too as they can look fantastic filled with plants. Any of these not sold on Saturday will then go up for sale on KT Miniatures website.
 Have also dug out one or two vintage pieces that are relevant to this project. I love the 1950s lead chickens, the mower is not vintage at all actually but a Phoenix mower painted to look there is a rare Dinky Dolly Varden 1/24th scale kitchen chair from the 1930s.  The upholstered chair on the right is a vintage 1980s/90s chair now aged a little....(so the gardener can rest his weary legs) plus the vintage chair on the far right is believed to be 1930s. The little old lead churns are perfect for use in these old garden scenes.
Should be a fun day!
