Miniatura purchases - part two

So this time I thought I'd show you all the bits and bobs.  Come back tomorrow for furniture and lighting.


Sorry it is still in the box - Delph Miniatures

I just love the next piece from Jeff Mewies.  When I tell you it cost me just £20 you can see why I feel so lucky to have found it/him.  He makes a slightly larger one for £25 and a larger one again for £30.  I don't even have a reason to have it in this project's narrative but my PhD student has now been given a passion for star-gazing.  It was simply a must-have for me.

It dismantles and folds down

The legs are hinged and the telescope expands

Even more extension to the legs and 'scope - a truly lovely piece

My teenage boy's trainers - might need a small piece of Gorgonzola inserted in them for realism - Mini Mcgregor

Just the right size mirror frame and enough decoration for the sitting room - Elite Petite 


My poor Joanne is being replaced with Joanne Two.  The one I have is lying down and won't 'fit' in the Rec room like that.  This incarnation will sit on a chair but she does dwarf her brother a little so he might change as well! - Jennifers of Walsall

Just wanted to show you how beautifully Elisabeth Causeret packs her tiny items

Two beautifully hand made ceramic mugs from Elisabeth next to a quite small teaspoon of mine.  Imagine having to apply those handles.

I have left this bowl on top of a box which is the same length as the teaspoon to give you the sense of scale.  They are perfectly paper thin potted pieces glazed and fired  - notice the lovely little foot to the bowl.  Elisabeth Causeret's  work is just the best.

Elisabeth's again - so paper thin and yes, hollow - a properly potted vase

Ditto the above - no idea where they will go, but go they will.

From the sublime to the ridiculous, but I believe in sharing everything - Delph Miniatures

  2. I love seeing how others go about shopping at fairs. This year, for the first time ever, I took a list and stuck to it. Looks like you had a big shopping list =0D

    1. Thanks Pepper. I just saw your wonderful, wonderful, TYA Kitchen haul - aren't their things gorgeous. I had to sign up for your blog again - got a couple of weird bad links gentry to find my way back - just giving you a heads up in case you think folk have gone missing.

  3. Hello Marilyn,
    How wonderful! You really have a great eye for miniatures. The porcelain is so delicate and beautifully made, but that telescope is amazing! what a great find!

    1. Thank you Giac. I love the telescope and could play with it for hours! I have always wanted Elisabeth Causeret's pottery so I was determined this time to find a few pieces I could afford. She has much more wonderful and beautiful things - these are the 'lesser' end of her creations..... but they're mine and I love them.

  4. Gorgonzola! Ha ha! Maybe a little green colored wisps of cotton coming out from them will convey the state of them! :o)

    I LOVE the pottery, and white is always so classy and perfect in a scene!

    The telescope was an amazing bargain! So realistic looking!

    I'm going over to Elite Petit now for a look around! I love the frame, and thanks for the link!

    1. Not sure her fretted stuff is on line....shame if not as there is heaps of lovely things. I'll go and look in a minute. Might be her daughter's work.

  5. The telescope is a great find, and yes I can see why you just had to have it. I think my favourite thing so far though just has to be your little pair of trainers - how fab do they look? Dead cool! I would say too, that you have very good taste in mirror frames!

    1. frame.... sharing thoughts with a genius .... what can I say. I have owned the trainers before in my very first project but of course got sold on along the way so was chuffed to see them come round again - they need scuffing up a little and pong added
