I thought this little shop would make an ideal Patisserie or with it's soft Spring green paintwork it could also be a flower shop (you could fill it with flowers made by Marianne Cook!) This shop is the ideal size for a small project or for a small space. Now on ebay so please take a look!

If you already have one of my little seaside cottages and have been worried about the lack of toilet facilities inside the house this could be the answer - a useful little outbuilding! It could be used for all sorts of things - storage, workshop, shed - and it can be used with a cottage or as a stand alone project. It's on ebay right now so please take a look.
I really enjoyed building the last 1/12th scale beach hut so I thought I would make another one. It's all ready for the new owner to paint and finish to their taste. After the snow of yesterday it's nice to think about the beach and the seaside!
After adding the extension to Primrose Cottage the builders moved on to Beacon Cottage where they built a much needed outside toilet ready for the new occupants to move in. Sam heard of the building work and thought he should just go and check out the new facilities. Hope they met with his approval!!!
Flowers as always by the super talented Marianne Cook and Sam was made by Robin Britton.

I've just completed two new shops to take to the dolls house fair in Southport on Saturday. It's always a busy fair with lots of lovely things to look at and buy so please come along if you can. It is in the Convention Centre which is easy to find on the seafront and there's plenty of parking nearby. Hope to see you there!!
I was asked if I could make a 1/12th scale beach hut with double french style doors at the front - this is what I came up with. The customer also wanted to be able to paint the hut herself so I have left the windows and doors loose to make the job easier. I know it's not really beach hut weather but just seeing this picture makes me think of the seaside and (hopefully!) sunny days on their way.
