Miniature shows

We had our annual Miniature Show in Johannesburg this weekend and I bought this lovely full scale furniture plan book, I am sure you will see some mini furniture from it in the future :-)

I couldn't decide which of the two Toby jugs I liked the most, so I bought both, they were from somebodies private collection. The silver egg cups are from Balgove Miniatures and the little mice are from a South African artist.

This little doily I bought from a different kind of show, an online show arranged by Shelley Norris, I am not sure when the next show will be but it sure is fun. The doily was made by Ludwina an IGMA artisan that crochets the most amazing fine and delicate items and she makes truly magnificent hand knotted miniature rugs.

The book is a great buy, I'm sure it will come in as a valuable reference for now and in the future. Enjoy all other finds as well, the look really nice.

I have some of the egg cups! I thought they were an old goblet of some sort!

Elga, I have that book plus a few others like it from Dover. They are all wonderful. I can't wait to see what you do with the patterns! Love the Monster Saw too!
