Still collecting....?





I know it has been a terribly long time since I last posted anything....I could try and find an excise, but sadly I haven't any...!

At present I am loving the work of Alison Davies. I know most of you know Alison already, as I have seen her work on your blogs and I understand she has been most successful at recent miniature fairs...no question at understanding why! I bought this gorgeous little table from Ali a few months back, the detail is wonderful and the size and scale is perfect....I adore it!!! WhileI am waiting for my next order to arrive I thought I should do a blog post, as I fear that my dear friend in America will 'spontaneously combust' if I do not.

While my blog has been quiet, so has my spending habits when it comes to miniatures....with not a lot that is new to show you. Although I have bought a few items for the florist...(that has now been stored away in a wardrobe)...I couldn't bare to look at it any longer in it unfinished (and neglected) state. I bought the little posters and chess board from 'A Lavender Dilly'....I always manage to lose myself for several hours in her Etsy shop.

I am not totally certain of the eventual home for Alison's table....do I start changing a few items in the Petite Maison, or save it for the florist.....please don't answer that question. But, what I do know is that it was a 'must-have' and I so love seeing what Ali has already made and I dream of what she might design in the future.

Wishing you all a Safe and Happy 2017.

Dear Linda, So nice to see your collection. The table is fantastic. I need to spend some time looking at the site of Alison Davies.

As I was away last July, I did not see your post on the movie "My Old Lady". We managed to see it on Netflix tonight and enjoyed it very much. I can imagine how much fun it would be to find the locations where it was filmed.

All the best.
Regards Janine

Your new table is gorgeous! I love all the details on that piece. I agree...'A Lavender Dilly' ETSY shop is great fun. The pieces you brought from her are going to be great in your new project.

Thank you for preventing that impending disaster. haha

Alison's table is a wonderful addition to your collection Linda! As are the other pieces. I particularly like those croissants, they're reminding me I haven't had breakfast yet ;-)
I am looking forward to see what else you have been ordering from Alison. Her pieces unleashed a bit of a greedy monster in me when I saw them.

As a newcomer to your blog I was delighted to see the purchase from Alison Davies as her items are just gorgeous....wish I had an unlimited budget! The table will be beautiful no matter where it is placed! A Lavender Dilly is such a nice place to shop too. Happy New Year to you...may 2017 bring health, happiness and contentment!
Cheers, Alayne

Hugs to you and David, Rosanna
