Avon Resin Room Sets.....

Can you remember last year, I showed you all some Resin Room Sets, that were made by Avon, that I have in my collection. Well just before Christmas, while I was having a look through Ebay. I came across the two sets, that I had missing. The Bathroom Set and The Kitchen Set. I put in a bid on both sets and won them both. I'm over the moon with them, as its taken years to find them.
The only thing missing now is the House, that Avon did to display the collection. But I think this was only available in the States. (The top two photographs, I found on Ebay in one of the discussion groups). If you click on the pictures, they should pop up bigger. The little sets are 1:24th Scale and I do have a little 1:24th Cottage, that they would look lovely in, or I may have a go at building a little House, to hang on the wall, like the Avon House was supposed to...

Linda,has just contacted me about these sets, after seeing this post. Avon did them in Australia as well, but are totally different to ours. She kindly gave me a link to the Australian Ebay link, where you can also see the Family, that they did and the sets that were available there. Linda has just taken a picture of the House she built for her sets of Resin Furniture. Its 2am in Australia and Linda, can't sleep as its too Hot, its 3pm here and freezing. I've asked her to send some of the Sunshine over here. Thank you so much for the picture and the links Linda, but I really think you should be in Bed now...LOL

Birthday Give Away..

Its a bit of a tradition now, that I have a Birthday Give away.
Well this year is no different. Although its a bit late.
Because its a Birthday Give Away, its a surprise as to what's in the box!
Last year it was a Bone China Bathroom Set, made by Robert Mack of Mack Fine China. Which was won by the lovely Doreen.
The year before it was a Reutter Gold Plated Porcelain Tea Set, that was won by Casey, although Tessie nabbed it.

Now the rules are:-

1. That you must be a follower of this blog, either on the blogger followers list or the networked blog list and your answer must be placed in the comments on this post only..

2. The question I'd like answering is:- I did some Baking on the 11th January. (See this post). I filled seven tins with cakes, but some didn't make it into the tins. ( I have a Hubby and Son that like cakes straight from the oven). How many individual cakes did I make? All the correct answers will go in the hat.

You have until 21st January to enter... Good Luck everyone...

Birthday Presents...

Well I know you've all been waiting, to see what I got in those presents. I was such a good girl and left them alone, else the temptation would have been too great to rip a little hole in the wrapping..
Ben & Harry, brought me the Flower Pot Cottage Kit, from Petite Properties Ltd. Which I wasn't allowed to open until Harry got in from School at 4pm this evening! I've had my eye on one of these kits for ages, and I'm glad to say my Boys do listen to their Mum. Really looking forward to putting this together.
I also got the Harry Potter Film Wizardry Book, which has already been written about by Kate & Michelle. I have to say its a brilliant book full of details that maybe we've all missed in the films. I Love it.
In the presents that Mick got me, were the Dragonology and Monsterology books that I wanted. To see the whole range of Ology books, just click on Ology to go to their site. They are very similar to the Harry Potter book, and are filled with lots of information and pull out bits and envelopes to open.
In the other parcel, Mick had stacked three DVDs, that's why the shape had thrown me. I'm a bit of a Steven Seagal fan and have all his films, these are new ones to add to the collection. I also got some clothes.
Mick's parents sent me some money to treat myself with.
My friend Tasha, came round for Lunch and we did eat a few cakes, but I sent her home with a tin full for her Boys. (That's if she didn't eat any on the way home).
Thank you to everyone that sent Cards, emails and left messages on my previous post and the hundreds of posts on my Facebook. I really appreciate them..
And a very special Thank you to the Miniature Witches, you made me cry with laughter today. You know who you all are, all I'll say is, I hope Johnny's not to exhausted and that there is some of that Rum left...Hic xxxxx

What's In The Parcels....?

See these parcel's, they have been sitting in my Lounge since Saturday, tormenting me!
They are my Birthday Presents from Hubby. Tomorrow, I get to rip that paper right off. I've been having a crafty poke and I've got an idea what the big parcel is on the bottom, but the one on the top has got me stumped! It feels like its three things, stacked one on top of the other. But I've been told not to squeeze it! Oh the torment..
My friend Tash, is coming over for Lunch tomorrow, so I thought I'd do some baking and got a bit carried away. Made a huge batch of Nanny Pope's Cakes and lots of Butterfly Cakes.
Yes, all seven tins are filled and there are two layers in every tin. Mind you, Mick and Harry, are already making short work of them and Ben's coming back from Uni tomorrow, so those cakes will steadily disappear..
