If you are off to Jersey for your holidays in a couple of weeks time or if indeed you live in Jersey, then how about nipping down to the bi-annual Jersey Dolls House Club's exhibition on Saturday 12th August, and help them raise money for two of their local Jersey charities - Autism Jersey and SCBU (a charity for premature babies).
This wonderful exhibition is being held at St. Brelade Parish Hall in St. Aubin, Jersey. It will be open from 10am until 5pm, entrance fee will be £2.00 - children entry free.
The exhibition is always a fun day with lots of lovely miniatures to feast your eyes on, including a display of members own handmade miniatures and dolls houses, a sales table of miniature items made by members and a raffle - the first prize being a kitchen designed by Susan Deans (the club secretary). This year the theme for members miniature room box creations is "Inside Out" and these will be on display too. There will also be refreshments and a dolls house for children to play with.
The photos above are of Odette Gardner's childhood house, which will be one of the exhibits on the day. It is genuine Jersey, just as Odette is! It was given to her by her godparents in 1954 when she was 7 years old.
All the furniture and accessories in the living room were made by Odette and represent her childhood home.
Many thanks to Jersey Club member, Barbara Kendall-Davies, who sent the above information and photos.
I wish the club all the best and hope that they have a fabulous day.
