Well getting to the point without giving you a long boring life story we found out that I was finally pregnant after 6 long years.
Due to this I regret to say that no new items will be added to my Etsy store.within the foreseeable future. I will still be undertaking custom work for the time being.
Please see my for sale and sold pages on this blog for current items available and previous items sold and made by custom order.

I'm just putting the finishing touches to the Giveaway which all I will say is part of a new range of furniture coming soon to Monster Miniatures. All though it might be a while before it hits the store as I have holidays and Vegetable gardening to get on with. I cant believe how behind in getting my Veg in I am this year.
Thank you for following my blog and I look forward to announcing the winner together with the prize on Sunday. That is if I have survived my charity walk at midnight on Saturday (oh no that's tomorrow aahhh!!) http://fundraising.suerydercare.org/penni-midnightwalk

I'm very lucky where I live as I live on a proper Country Estate, No I'm not rich before you ask a long way from it in fact.
Bucklebury where Kate is from is just up the hill and I went to school with many friends from the village and surrounding areas. Unfortunately I have no connections to the family so know of no one personally with an invitation but the villages are certainly a buzz with celebrations.
Obviously being a country Estate there is a "Big House" and I have heard rumors that there is an invitation there. The Village is having a big street party tomorrow, and I am really looking forward to watching the Wedding on TV.

I know its been ages since I last added anything new to my shop, but just to let you all know there are bits in product development stage but they just aren't developing as fast as I hoped.
I have a whole brain full of ideas for my witch's cottage at the moment and I'm hoping some of it will rub off on to here.
Right I suppose I better get back to it and quit wondering around here shuffling my feet.

With all the changes that have been going on over at Etsy I have decided not to keep all my eggs in one basket and have now opened an Artfire studio.
There's no need to sign up or register to purchase items within Artfire and there are lots of great miniaturists now exhibiting there, so please do take a wonder over with a cup of tea and your favorite comfy shopping slippers. I wont tell if you don't ;)

Please feel free to follow my new blog here where I have already made a start on stripping it down ready for the floors and walls to be done.
My next task is to find someone who does miniature dolls house signs as I would love a tiny slate one to go by the door.
The Stall was Bella Belle Dolls I had I had seen it on Julies Blog
I have no plans to have a baby in my modern dolls house and have no other houses suitable for her but she reminded me so much of my daughter when she was a baby I think even had I given Julie a photo and had her commissioned I wouldn't have got a closer match, even hubby agreed when I showed her to him.
When taking pictures of her to share on here and with friends I found myself taking as many as I would have done with a real baby lol. so here are lots of picture of my new baby which doesn't have a home yet, so she might be visiting Honey Cottage with her mum for tea and cake.

Here is one crystal ball that has a lovely sparkly base. I say one crystal ball as my Witch is going to have a whole array of them
And here are the potions that will start my Witches collection

I also got this little spell book from Dateman Books, I could have spent a fortune on that stall lol
I loved all the little bits on Tee - Pee Crafts and think it has to be top of the list for most people as once you start looking your ideas just start flowing.
I got this real marble table top for the witch to have in the center of her room, I couldn't decide between the table legs they had they where either too low but perfect shape or the right hight but more suitable for a Georgen or Victorian property.
I got these two frames, a dragon and these two finding that I have plans for and a little ring for a base of a crystal ball.
I love my little haul but now I have it all home I wish I had picked up a couple more bit lol
I bought some slate from the £1 reduced stand on Richard Stacey's stall, at this point I hadn't seen the boxes in person so wasn't sure how much I would need, but having got it all home and had a little play I've got more than enough thankfully. So the witches cottage will have a real slate floor once I have worked out how to cut it without breaking too much.
At lunch I met up with some lovely friends that I have been talking to for years and Helen from Vinweeda Magic showed me some scales she bought for an apothecary she was planning to do in the future and as soon as I saw it I said to her "Ooooo you could weigh out witches potions on that", so just had to go get myself one too and some weights. These were from Heidi Ott.
Devon Dolls House Delights had lots of beautiful things on offer they had two amazing dragon beds and a carriage being pulled by a dragon. I saw this beautiful curled up dragon that I thought was so sweet. I thought it could be the witches baby dragon that had a bad spell put on him that turned him into stone by a rival witch.
Dark Squirrel's Miniature Asylum: 200 Follower Giveaway...: "Thank you to all of you who read and follow my blog. When I started this blog I thought maybe a few friends would follow and probably ..."
I got a dog lead from Shepherd Miniatures which had lots of lovely items on sale, a huge stall full of minis.
I also got lots of plates, side plates and bowls large and small and a jug from Helen's Houses
Although she said she wouldn't put them away until I have built her somewhere to put them
I didn't buy much from Elf yesterday but it was lovely finally getting meet Elizabeth after many emails and telephone conversations with her it was nice to be able to put a face to the voice and messages.
I did buy a lovely little sink and tap from her for a convert I'm going to do to a dressing table a friend sent me.
I now have two pre loved shop boxes from a lovely friend. Ive decided to turn one into a witches cottage and I'm still deciding what to do with the other one.
In real life I am a creative assistant for a chandelier company that makes hand made chandeliers, hubby said I should make a miniature lighting shop lol but I'm not so sure about that one.
One I make a start on the witches cottage I will make another blog page for it as it wont be modern lol but until then I will share with you all the goodies I have bought for it at miniature here.
