It's time to come clean and own up to a couple more purchases at Miniatura. Lots of comments on my last post congratulating me on being a good girl at the show, so in my defence these were on my list!
I could not go to a show and not look out for another character from the wonderfully talented Julie of Bellabelle Dolls.
As usual Julie had a lovely selection on her stand and I chose this little witchy.
Looks like she has made a purchase at Flourish and Blotts and is heading back to The Leaky Cauldron where her older sister is having a nap.
She is a pretty little thing and definitely a member of the Weasley Family!
I was also very pleased to see Julie still had some of her mirror ghosts for sale. I had the perfect place for 'Charles'.
He fits perfectly into the guest bedroom above the fireplace.
As many of you know Julie has been invited to show at the Tom Bishop fair in Chicago and lucky Jain is going to accompany her. Wow, what a fab opportunity and they are both so excited, although Julie is a bit terrified too!
I am sure Julie will be a huge success and her dolls will fly off her stand but I hope she will have a few left for Kensington in May!
Lastly how could I resist this little Dumpty for my toyshop?!
I have been collecting nostalgic toys from Sally Reader for my toyshop for a couple of years now. They are so well made and remarkable value. I have a Magic Roundabout set that always makes me think of tea time with my family when I was an awful teenager! I then thank the light that my own teenagers are sooooo much nicer!!
Oh and I did manage to get a couple of sheets of wallpaper to finish off the walls of The Leaky Cauldron. The stand I had purchased the wallpaper from was not at Birmingham for this show as the stand holder had had a recent operation. I then went round all possible stands looking for something that would match up, impossible.
Then just as I was thinking of going home I saw packets of wallpaper on a stand selling fireplaces and they had two sheets!!! Perfect end to a lovely day.
