|chimney breast kit|
I bought this chimney breast kit for two reasons (1) it only cost £5 and (2) it has grooves at the back so you can easily inset the other pieces and keep them nice and vertical.

I am pretty sure I don't need it for this build but I am also pretty sure this probably isn't the last project I'll do (like it is supposed to be). I wish, I wish, I wish I knew who I bought if from - not much use to me when I need another four!! All I can do is keep my eyes open in hopes of spotting it again at a fair. Can't even visualise the stand let alone name it.
|leather coat and scarf/shawl/wrap/whatever|
I liked this aviator type leather jacket and scarf for the mud room hooks. have prised the coat off its hook and rehung it on mine. Not as easy as it sounded.

|looking for feet|
Last month I bought a pair of expensive lamps from Miniatura and one was missing four tiny feet under the bottom plate. It was sold to me with the instruction to contact the artisan and she would happily send me the feet. I have emailed her and the vendor to no avail - no response from either!! Bit peeved I must admit. I am now on a hunt for gold no hole beads but am reluctant to pay postage on a very low price purchase. Tee-Pee had no gold no-holes and I didn't find anyone else with any, so bought silver and will paint them. Also bought some little 'cups' shaped findings in hopes but they are way too big.
I once had a lovely cat but sold it with my twelfths and have never seen one as nice since. As this was all of about a pound I thought it would do for now. I am a great believer in stand-ins. I much prefer them to gaps. I think if I de-pink its inner ears it might even do.
|tulips and finding|
Again the tulips will act as stand-ins until something better comes along. The silver bowl is a real find in Tee pee's findings. Nicely engraved outside with a band of flowers and patterned inside too - will look nice when it is filled with fruit or something.
Huge apologies for not noting where I got anything. I know it is absolutely no help to you if you want any of these things. All I can say is that nothing is exceptional and if you go to any fair or do a google search you will find these, or similar items, very easily.
I had a strange time at this fair - very unfocused.
