Today, I've been back in the van unpacking more boxes. One of the first boxes I opened, contained my melting pot, etching tool and my finished food miniatures and works in progress. Now I knew I'd made some other bits, but I thought they were already in another box that I've been able to get to.
It was quite a discovery opening each little draw, and seeing what was hiding in there after nearly five years. I used to make loads of stuff and then put it in these drawers, to use on different projects as I was making them.
Nikki, can you see all the Cheese? Did you also notice the little newt sausage rolls.
Another little drawer contains lots of my miniature Knives, Rolling Pins, Spoons etc,.
I also found this beautiful Miniature Solid Silver Basket, that my Dad brought my Mum at one of the Fairs they attended together. But for the life of me I can't remember who the maker is. Any help on that score very much appreciated.
I also found my Miniature Conservatory from Ikea. Which was going to be turned into a Teddy Bear Shop. There's lots of Mini Bears in the bottom. Then I opened another Box and found a Dolls House Kit, another thing I'd forgotten about. I'm sure Casey, has one of these on her blog somewhere, so will be going over to have a look later.
The van is in a total mess at the moment, but at least I'm getting somewhere.
On the home front, Ben had a letter today from Aberystwyth University. A few weeks ago he sat a Scholarship Exam, although he didn't win a Scholarship, he did get an unconditional offer and a Merit award of £1,000.00 towards his first year at University. As you can imagine we are all as pleased as punch for him. Congratulations Ben, your off to Aberystwyth in September. What a Mother's Day present... xxxx
I Got the Best of the Trade!
