Can you believe lazy old me that can never get out of bed got up at 4 am on Saturday morning. Which is even more unbelievable because i didn't go to sleep until 1am.
The journey to miniatura took me three and a half hours, yet i was there in what seemed like a flash. Debie from Piskies and Poppets met me off the train.
She was ever so brave to give me a big hug because all i did the whole of Saturday was sneeze and cough with a cold (seemed more like flue to me).
It was really lovely to meet up with Debie and spend the day with such a lovely kind, generous and ever so thoughtful person.
Anyway, i pottered about scaring everyone to death with my sneezing and not many would go within 2 ft of me, lol.
This is what i bought:
Quite a mix of various minis for using in my work. I don't buy in bulk and so fairs are great for my work.
Cute little birds and hinges and handles etc.
Kate and John from http://whittakersminis.blogspot.com/ asked me to pick up this beautiful bookstand from Karin at http://kc-design-kc.blogspot.com/. I need to post this to you in the morning Kate. Sorry i'm a little late doing so.
Karin could not attend the show herself because she is not well at the moment. I was really looking forward to meeting her too because i adore everything she makes.
After the show i went to Debies to meet her family and have tea. I didn't want to come home because i was having such a nice time. Debies children are fab, her husband is lovely, but i really adored little Kieran that doesn't stop chatting away.
His chatting is endless but he's so cute and such a lovely little boy. I could have taken him home! They all made me very welcome and tea was lovely even though i couldnt taste a thing with my cold. Debbie asked me if it was nice, lol, but i didnt have a clue because my taste buds were totally not there!
Thank you Debie for a lovely time!
I came home quite late and my husband met me off the train just over half way. He then got lost and what should have been an hours journey took two. He always gets lost and has no sense of direction even though the M25 sign posts were clearly there. Hit my pillow once home and didn't wake up until 12 hours later.
On Sunday my husband and Patrick went to a game show and bought me a tripod for my camera and some fudge. As if i am not fat enough!
I just need to get a clicker now (not sure of the technical name) and will hopefully be able to take better pictures.
This morning i had a wonderful surprise. My friends Bob and Doreen sent me a fab parcel of watering cans and flower pots for my mandrake scenes.
I knew they were sending me some but not this many. I love all of them and chuffed to bits i can make what i want now.
They also sent loads of terracotta plant pots which i'm ever so happy about because they were the size i was after. Thank you Bob and Doreen.
Here is a link to Bobs website. My fave there is his enamelware.
And here is a link to Doreen website. Doreen stock a wide variety of minis.
And Finally, lol, check out this fab sculpture. It's fab isn't it?
Very touchy feely too!
