Back from York Dollhouse fair
We love York dollhouse fair as we have such lovely customers and friends we can have a good natter with! It is always a successful event for us, but we thought at the start of the day it was going to be a quiet show - thankfully we were wrong and we did better than usual but we have noticed that some fairs are quieter than usual.
We were okay in the end because we sold some dolls and took some commissions and it seems we need to go into animals lol I have always liked making animals dressed as people but I am admittedly not as good at making them as I would like to be (although mine have always sold) but now I can get Aidy to give them a try ;o) as they are orders! So on the to do list is Toad and Badger, the march hare from Alice in wonderland and Peter Rabbit plus a family of humans in 1:24 scale.
The picture is of The Two Bad Mice by Beatrix Potter which I made for Miniatura a year or so ago. They are mouse sized as the story features two mice sneaking into a dolls house and being very annoyed that the food which looks so delicious is in fact made of clay!
