I was going to write 'wins the race'.....but of course there is no race, (and if there was, I would be miles behind the hare.....) but I am enjoying collecting and enlarging my collection of miniatures for my next/new project. I think the thrill of hunting down some of these miniatures is some times the best part of being a miniature collector......I have bought many little delights over the past few months, but it was one piece that I enjoyed making (I should say 'assembling') just last week. It was a Cynthia Howe 12th scale (laser cut) bird cage kit. The detail and design I think is fabulous and it went together in a matter of minutes. The cage can be painted etc....but for this project I (think) I prefer it left natural, it has a wonderful Victorian feel about it.....I'm loving it!!!!! There is of course a few more pretties, but I shall show you those in a day or two.
