My First Etsy Purchases.


















 I have been drooling over the many fabulous miniatures available from Etsy  and finally decided to take the plunge and buy something. Ok so I got a little carried away. (Originally I thought I'd buy one, maybe two plates in total.) But why buy one when you can buy more! The purchases all came from http://www.etsy.com/shop/alavenderdilly you can also find her blog at http://alavenderdilly.blogspot.com.au/













My first purchase was for my Mum. I'm yet to figure out if I should make a mini room box or diorama for these. My Mum has been collecting real life Royal Albert Old Country Roses since I was little. I'm almost sure that she has nearly every piece available. But at last I have found her something that she doesn't have, 1/12th scale.















I have been collecting blue and white real life scale plates for a few years and love the different scenes on them. So of course I thought my Victorian house would need some also.


The turkey platter is a little different to the others but I love it for many reasons. When I was growing up each Christmas my family would insist on a hot baked turkey and roast pork dinner. If you know anything about Australia in summer you know its hot!  So a hot dinner on a 35 degree day is a silly idea. Anyway each year this turkey plate would turn up covered in meat. I think the actual plate has been gone for a long time but this tiny plate will remind me of all those hot dinners and of course great memories.
