Animals Dollshouse Shows Garden Plants

I have been working in the garden a lot recently, giving me little time for anything else. Well strictly speaking that's not true, as I have been to London for five days this past week!
As you can see the garden is coming along nicely. I have planted a hedge and filled the raised bed with soil. I already have some lovely vegetables growing in there. The cabbages and lettuces are by Angie Scarr, the seedlings are made by....me! Yes, another fantastic Fimo creation by my own fair hands ;-)))
' Hello hello, who's that?', I hear you ask. Well this sweet little kitty was my first purchase at the Kensington Dollshouse Festival this past weekend, at precisely 1 minute after 10 ;-) Can you blame me? He's just so sweet! He was made by Annie Willis of Fine Design.
I think he is my favourite purchase from the show. Perfect for my little city garden.
But hang on, what is he looking at?
It's just the vegetables, not a bird in sight.
OMG it's a rat! And it's stealing my radishes! (Rat and radishes made by Georgia Marfels).
Don't just stand there cat! Get it, get the rat! Chase it away, do something!
I had a great time in London. I spent a lot of time at the beautiful V&A museum, met up with my Norwegian friends (see this post) and of course visited the Kensington Dollshouse Festival. I love to see what the exhibitors have made, and chat with them. But that means that even spending the full two days there doesn't give me enough time to see everything. I know I know, I talk too much!
Unfortunately that also means I did not take any photos. None! I am so sorry! I really intended to write a full show report... Of course I will show you some of the things I bought in my next posts. Until then...!
PS: I have just decided to name the cat 'Kensington', for he surely is of noble birth. I will call him 'Tonnetje' for short (meaning 'little barrel' in Dutch, as he is a little bit overweight).
