Kit of the Month

I'm back from holiday, no real disasters this time though the first day turned into a bit of a nightmare when a blocked pipe caused an upstairs neighbour's washing machine to empty itself into our kitchen. Did have a moment or two when I wanted to get back in the car and come straight home!
Felt like King Canute as I tried to stem the flood of soapy water from reaching the wooden floors in the rest of the flat......mission accomplished and everything was sorted out that evening and the following morning.
Have now left two insurance companies, the management company and our insurers to sort it out.

And now to the important stuff!!! Kit of the month.
This month I've chosen African Violets, this kit makes three small plants, so it's ideal if you want to make gifts for miniature loving friends. Or if you belong to a dolls house club it's a project you can complete in an evening.
The kit normally costs £3.90 but for the month of October the price is £1.95.

Oh yes, one more thing, here is an opportunity to get £5.00 discount off your first purchase on Etsy (from any shop) You must register first and it must be your first purchase to qualify.

Go to the Miniature Garden Centre facebook page for the link.

See you all next month.

Happy New Year!!!

Wishing each and every one of you a very Happy New Year, may all your dreams come true in 2014. Real size and Miniature!!!

And to start the New Year, I'm delighted to announce that the Kit of the Month for January 2014 is 1/12th scale Snowdrops.
 Please quote JAN14 on any order to pay £1.75 instead of £3.50. You will find the price already discounted in my Etsy shop.
You'll find a link on the side bar of this blog.

Another bit of news, I can no longer take credit card payments at Fairs or if you send me an order form by post. To be quite honest the card terminal costs about £20.00 a month, and often I don't use it for months, so I have decided to cancel my contract. I'd rather not give the bank money for nothing!!

Please remember you can pay with a Credit or Debit card or Paypal in my Etsy shop. And if you would rather e-mail me an order I can send you a Paypal invoice. Or if you want to use the mail order form then a cheque from an British bank is still very acceptable!

Thank you so much for shopping with me in 2013. Dates of fairs booked for 2014 are as follows:

City of London Dollshouse Festival. 2nd February 2014 11.00am to 5.50pm at The Tower Hotel E1W 1LD
Thame Dollshouse and Miniatures Fair. 22nd February 2014 at Thame Leisure Centre OX9 2BB

I won't be attending Miniatura this Spring......sorry to miss you all, but I should be back in the Autumn.

So just to say again...... Happy New Year to you and yours
