I have been to three miniature shows these past two months. Three! At the beginning of April there was the Apeldoorn show in the Netherlands, then beginning of May there was the Kensington show in London, England and this past weekend I hitched a ride with Elly (and Elga) to the show in Rheda, Germany.
Yes, I know how lucky I am to be able to visit three shows, but now I'll say something awful (or maybe I should just softly whisper...): it was a bit much! It was fun to meet and speak to some friends and miniaturists though.
I promised to show you some of my purchases two weeks ago, but I have been too busy! I will make it up to you, here's a little start:
In London I came across this pretty teapot made by Jack Cashmere. I could not resist the pretty pattern and colours which are perfect for the Salon of my first Canal House!
The blue and white plate will move to some other part of the house as it does not match the style of the room. I also found this beautiful bouquet of flowers at the Kensington fair. Again the perfect colours for the Salon.
The flowers were made by Gill Rawling of Petite Fleur (no website I'm afraid). Can you guess what they're made of? They're all metal, brass I believe, and then painted. Aren't they gorgeous? And they'll last forever ;-)
In Rheda I could not resist buying another pair of shoes from Patrizia Santi (Patrisan). She did not have too many left when I came to her table, but I thought these were fun and summery (is that a word?). I will have to start making some clothes to go with my shoe collection!
My last purchase was a pair of scissors from Edmund Drechser (no website). He makes the most wonderful miniature tools, all working of course! Here's the proof:
