A Christmas Feature, again!

Yay! Another cover! I love getting covers at Christmas (see last year's here, and year before that here). This year it is on 'The Dolls' House Magazine' and you can purchase a copy of this brilliant UK magazine here.

This is the feature below and a selection of the photos they used. Please note that these scenes were originally created for (but not printed in) the magazine 'Dolls House and Miniature Scene', which my talented friend Stephanie is on the cover of this month - and it's a fabulous magazine, so you should check that out too.

So thrilled to get my copy of The Dolls' House Magazine in the mail yesterday!

An English Christmas Roast

Gosh, where have I been?! I know that's what you must be thinking, unless you follow my 'Caroline blog' (HERE) as I haven't blogged since October! Well, let me fill you in...

In a nutshell, I have had two exhibitions on and so I worked like a crazy person for the past 10 weeks to get everything done! The exhibitions are ongoing right now. One is in Burbank, California (details here on my Caroline blog) and the other is in Shanghai, China (more details here), and I just got back from China yesterday! I'll share all sorts of photos of the exhibitions soon.... but for now, here are some photos of new Christmas miniatures to begin to celebrate Christmas 2014 over at Hummingbird Miniatures! I made this Christmas scene as part of my Shanghai exhibition. There is a roast turkey on a tray with greens and cranberries, a dish of mixed roast veg (zucchini / courgette, carrots and parsnip), a dish of Brussels sprouts, a dish of roast potatoes and plates with very English crackers. The silk table runner has hand-painted trees and there's a holly table decoration with candles and oranges and two golden potted mini trees. This entire table will be available for sale as 1 piece after the exhibition ends (Jan 2015). Attached are hand-blown glass wine goblets, ceramic plates, hand-painted cutlery, a red cotton table cloth and a wooden bread board with sliced bread. To reserve this piece feel free to email me directly.

Below are 'making of' photos as well as close-ups of the finished piece.

I'll re-open my online Hummingbird Miniatures Etsy shop today as well!
