Having a bad cold means that I can actually enjoy a little bit of blogging, and finally post a few pictures. Here are the Christmas presents that I was lucky to receive, a half moon table by Masters Miniatures and a painted gravy boat, creator unknown.
The table is beautiful, much nicer in reality than the photo here, and also much nicer than the photo on the Masters' website. It is sleek and simple, and fits really well with the simplicity of the parlour. The gravy boat caught my eye - I'm not overly fond of pink, but the little detail of the head really intrigued me... I don't know who made it, but it is lovely.
I painted this little picture of a lighthouse in watercolours, and framed it. I was quite pleased with it, and wondering what to put in the other frame below it, when I realised something horrible... My printed painting of a the Stuart princess is much more detailed, and I'm afraid that the two of them together will only show up the hand-made nature of my little lighthouse:
See what I mean? This leaves me with three options - one, I replace the lighthouse with a printed picture, two, I try to recreate the picture of Louisa-Maria (probably badly), three, I ignore the problem and hope no one notices it except for me. What do you think?
Oh, and I cannot, cannot believe that I actually have some followers, especially because lots of you are people who have really inspired me, both with my minis and to get blogging. I think a give-away is in order! I'll sort something out and get back to you when I'm feeling a bit better,
