Talking of the swap group, it was my Birthday last Friday and I received nine minis.
Aren't they great?!! Hubby got me some perfume which he gave me a couple of weeks ago because I had run out but on my birthday he gave me a Kindle!! So I've been reading as well as mini-ing. That night we went for a meal, at our local in The Lakes, and when Steve came to pay the bill it had been taken care of by the owner, so all in all it was a fantastic day.
I've decided (I think) what I am going to do with Karin's castle. I did at first think of doing a kitchen but then when I Googled them I realised that it would detract from the beautiful stone work and a kitchen probably wouldn't have had a stained glass window so I decided on a dining hall. Silk curtains to frame the window and a simple table and chairs. I've already bought a suit of armour and the wood to make the furniture but I think I'll hold off doing any thing until after Thingmas when we stop going to the van and I will have some free weekends.
Last but not least, please take a look at this Blog, Blake is a young man who makes some fantastic minis and is trying to fund his way through college. If you're on Facebook like His page as well. Young people need a helping hand in this fantastic hobby.
See you later....
