Off to Arnhem

I was absent for some days because I accepted an invitation on 10th Oct that I will exhibit parts of my works in Arnhem show this evening.

It’s a tough work but a great challenge for preparing a show in 14 days.
It’s was crazy but exciting since this will be my first fair. Just the neck and the shoulders are sacrificed due to much working load. I have more than 100 pieces of works to show off in the fair.

I will take the train to Arnhem in two hours.
Once any of you will come to Arnhem show, I sincerely welcome you to stop by.
I don’t know the table number but I will be there with Bob Willans (Tollgate Miniatures)

Arnhem, my first time is given to you. Never let me down!!! :o)


Gorgeous! Ladurée Religieuses come to my home

I was so delightful when opening the parcel of Alison of Bliss Miniatures. This is the BEST miniature religeuses that I have ever seen. Look at these details that Alison has made… I adore them.

When I noticed Alison’s Etsy shop last year, I have made up my mind to own some of her works. In July, when she launched her web, I saw the little religeuses waving the hands (yes) and they beckoned my spirit. This is what I could not resist. They are that realistic and darling. I must make a beautiful home for them.

The mini sofa and chair were purchased from eBay UK. They were second hand ones, so the price was not expensive. The most difficult part was removing the paper patterns. I did the job in mid-July, as you can imagine how much sweat has mixed with Tacky Glue.

I am so pleased to have Alison’s religieuses, the rose and the cupcake come to my home. I do hope someday I am capable to make some pastries as beautiful as hers!! (Thank you Alison for such wonderful creation!)


Some updates and Autumn Miniatura

I feel shame that I don't work much recently though the beautiful season has been arriving silently! I don’t know what I was busy for; except some little plates, I made just some furniture kits in September.

The food safe and working table kits are from Jane HarropThe explication is clear and easy to follow. I love Jane's kits! I made these kits for training myself; hope I will have better skills in the future.

One thing made me pleased was I left for Birmingham last Friday and re-joined the hubby in Paris on Sunday. Since this was the first time I went abroad attending a miniature fair, everything was so wonderful for me.

I met some friends from SIMP, like Pascale Garnier, Lia and Alma of Vilia Miniature, and Cinen; I also tried to talk to some of my favorite artisans, like Ray Storey and Phil Grenyer of Glass Craft. Both of them are friendly sellers; they both will attend the Arnhem show in Oct.

I noticed a very talented artist, Danny Shotton, who made some stainless knives, and some amazing garden tools in 12th scale. I will definitely collect more of his items once I meet him again in some fairs in the UK next year.(Like Terry Curran, he does not have web or email, but he leaves his phone numbers on the stickers)

Except some flower kits, accessories and supplies, I also bought some lovely furniture and house kits in 24th and 48th scale. That will be my reference for the future projects! (smiling hopfully in the direction ha ha!)

I don’t show off all the treasures in the post but when I said goodbye to Birmingham, the wallet was empty. The rest with me was 2 pounds and 10 pence but I still hope I will have better budget for the next show in Arnhem.
By the way, I found a delicious Britain snack by accident during the days in Birmingham city center. I LOVE SCOTCH EGGS though the flavor and taste made me homesick. I brought 3 back to France on Sunday. C'est très bon!
