I've been shopping - again!

I'm an avid follower of Flora's Blog and when I discovered she had an Etsy Shop I just had to have a look.

It was difficult to go there and not shop!

Today a parcel arrived - beautifully presented .......... what wonderful minis did it contain?

A delightful message from Flora, two intricately styled candle holders with candles and a box of mini mail. The mail especially is just so detailed, right down to the tiny bundle of letters tied with a bow - however did you manage that, Flora? - and folded in tissue paper

Mrs Admiral is certainly going to be pleased with these little accessories - I'd better start thinking about decorating her room.

THANK YOU Flora for an excellent service, I'll certainly be shopping with you again.

I had a fun time today putting all the little items I purchased at the fair last into the Admiral's closet. On looking at the picture, I think I need something with a bit of height on the second shelf though.

Top shelf - grooming treatments and money; second shelf - braces, gloves and golfing socks; third shelf - sketch book, telescope and map and on the bottom shelf - shoes, pith helmet and binoculars.

One thing I hadn't noticed initially was that the Sketch book has actual sketches!

Lots of Goodies..........

I managed to pick up a good selection of items at the Miniatura Fair in Birmingham at the weekend. It wasn't deliberate but the Admiral has done VERY well indeed.

There really isn't a great selection out there for gentlemen's items so I'm afraid whenever I saw something suitable, I snapped it up.

The fabric and trimmings are for The Salon, the ladies dressing table set will find a home once I get started on Her room (that's the next project) and I'm not sure where I'll put the little candle holders, I just liked them.

The book is a little sketch book, the little tartan items are golfing socks and the item under the shoes is actually a pair of braces but they are a bit more obvious in the picture above. The playing card has 51 other little friends that have to be placed - by me - in their box. It could take a while!

My favourite item of the whole show just had to be the tiny opening and closing cut throat razor which was from Danny Shotton.

The box to the left holds a telescope and came as part of a set with the pith helmet and map; I'm really pleased too with the brush and comb set on the stand as well as the champagne (which I nearly didn't buy then changed my mind!). The item to the front is money in a clip.
