Welcome to Little Miss Kris (not sure if you have a blog?), Lainie and Victoria.  Nice to have more followers!

I have been busy spending far too much money - from now on I must try to concentrate on making things instead for a while.  I really enjoyed Miniatura, I was only there for a day but I think I managed to see everything, though I could have spent much longer looking at all the lovely detail in some of the stands.

Here is my haul......

Handmade false books by Ellie de Lacy (there were some lovely handbound books also, but these non-opening books are very effective), and a selection of tiny perfect miniatures by Danny Shotton.

A Victoria Fasken teaset (the photo doesn't really do this justice).

Pitcher and pot from Elisabeth Causeret Bettler.

Mirror by The Ironworks & Black Country Miniatures, hurricane lamp by Glasscraft, gold plated fire-irons by Lucy Askew, and a fantastic ginger beer bottle by Terry Curran.

Old gin bottle, pipe in ashtray and crystal ball from Shepherd Miniatures, bowler hat from Forget-Me-Not Miniatures.

Aged lichen covered pots by Clive Brooker.

Hand-turned burlwood bowl by Ken and Linda Batty of Al'Turn'Ative Proportions.

Bits and pieces from Tee Pee Crafts (I could have spent much more time rummaging here!).

In addition were flower kits from The Miniature Garden Centre, and Templewood Miniatures, trims and fabric from Little Trimmings and Blue Riband, and plasterwork from Sue Cook.

What wonderful purchases. I love rummaging at Tee-pee Crafts stall, but it normally gets packed.

Very nice blog and miniature, I like the caravan very good.

Hi Debbie, it was a bit difficult to get to anything at Tee Pee crafts, but apparently Miniatura was much quieter than usual. It still seemed pretty crowded to me!

Hi Gonda, thanks for your comment, I really love your Lundby cabin, what an interesting idea for a Lundby house.
