I firstly want to thank everyone for their lovely thoughtful comments about the death of my great dane Indy. It has been a rough couple of weeks, but your comments are much appreciated.
Over the past few weeks the postman has been very busy delivering a few giveaway items and a recent purchase.
This lovely garden tub came from a giveaway from Mi Pequena Evasion http://pekevasion.blogspot.com. I love the way that it has been aged and really like the realistic look of the water.
Hannah from www.hannahsminiatyrer.blogspot.se also announced the winner of her VW bus guessing competition. I was so surprised to find that it was me! It is an absolutely wonderful mini VW. It is teeny tiny! Hannah I don't know how you made it so tiny with so much detail. Hannah also included a lovely wool dog. Here is an action shot of the puppy.
My last photo is of a new purchase. I own an O gauge train set that would look fantastic with a little township so I finally found one. These little villages are very hard to find in Australia but I was lucky to find one from an online shop called Halcyon Hours. It was one of the last ones of this type in stock.. Thanks Halycyon Hours for sending it so quickly.
If you know of any other Australian stockists I would love to hear from you. I am now after the other two sets!
I will start to work on it over the weekend. I realise I won't get anywhere near completing it by this Christmas. Maybe next year! I'm debating if I should create it in the putz style or if I should keep it traditional. What do you suggest? Any ideas?
I hope to post again before Christmas...but there is lots to do...talk soon
