Eventually I manage to organise my brain and take it steady, one floor at a time.
Yet again, totally spoilt with row upon row of wonderful miniatures all shouting, 'Take me, take me!'
I had to find my favourite food maker Linda Cummings. Apart from her skill and artistry I have to admire her ability to make all the 'boring' stuff - and so much of it. By boring I mean meat, vegetables, and fish. Linda doesn't hasten back to making 'pretty as I and many others do.
That is what is so special about her miniatures, the detail. Take a close look at her mushrooms, all detailed with the frilly bit underneath!
Typical of me though, I didn't buy them, I bought 'pretty' cakes and fruit and here they are.
At the May fair I bought a gorgeous floppy, brown bear for my Easter scene from Veronique Lux, who makes the cutest animals so I made for her stand where I found this sweet lamb for the Christmas display.
Patrizia Santi is well known for her amazing shoes but she has branched out and now makes furniture too. I bought this photo frame. I just need to slot in some photos.
I also bought this for my florist/garden centre from a Spanish lady but unfortunately I've lost the the card with her name.
As you see I had a fabulous time and now I'm enjoying 'playing' with them all, moving things around and finding homes for them.
Thanks for looking!
