Hobart miniature show

 The theme for tiny roomboxes displayed around long gallery Salamanca was occupations,when I saw this one I had to take a sneaky pic for Miniaussie unfortunately a little blurry but Im sure she will get the idea ;)
 I must be going crazy.....after seeing Miniaussies 1/4 scale room I couldnt help but buy this tiny cottage ,some furniture kits and a book on making 1/4 scale furniture .
 I should learn.....I bought this and even checked in the box to make sure it was ok ....can anyone guess where the price sticker was????? yes hidding the fact that there was a drawer missing...oh well easy fix to make a drawer ;)
 I bought a 1/12th scale shop ...oops
 then I had to buy some fittings for it lol
 My first battery powered light :) for my entry hall it :)I also picked up some taps,hinges and bits for building
and of course I didnt forget miniaussie ....some boots for her shoe collection and a little dog that reminded me of hers :)
I also got a contact number for a group that meets close to my home ,I will call next week and see about checking the place out as they meet on the 1st monday of the month .

A week with MiniAussie

 One of the many room boxes on display at the VAME show
 odds and ends some from the show others from discount stores and op shops.
 More things from the show.....had to get more of the beautiful turned wooden vases 'similar to the ones Miniaussie bought for me last year....and the little package at the back was made by her ..gorgeous...even has a tiny golly inside :)
 More bits.
wow what a week it was too ....I dont think Ive shopped so much in years! Attended my first dolls house show bought loads of little bits and made it home in time for the show in Hobart next weekend where I may pick up a few more bits ;) I didnt buy anything large in Melbourne because it would have been difficult to get it home ....always next weekends show here ;) feeling like getting back into the swing of things once I get my room sorted ( yet again)
