I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
Sadly our Christmas took a rather unpleasant turn when my Step Mother (who was hosting Christmas)
fell down the stairs and face planted the tiled floor causing multiple fractures. I spent the afternoon in casualty and my poor Step Mother had facial surgery on boxing day. They put 3 pins in her upper face and wired her upper and lower jaw. I am happy to report that she has made a very good recovery and is now at home.
On a brighter note, Christmas morning was lovely and as a gift to Mia I commissioned Patricia Cabrera from http://woolytalesminiatures.blogspot.com to make replicas of our Dogs Hero and Twiggy. They are divine, an amazing likeness of our Hungarian Vizsla's. I sent Patricia images of our Dogs (sadly Hero the large male died last year) and she captured their personalities perfectly. Hero the strong and loyal guard Dog and Twiggy the playful little female (she's so naughty, but in a cute way, right at the moment she is pushing her nose under my arm trying to get me to take her for a walk). Mia was so delighted and in fact quite emotional seeing them together. I thought it was a lovely way to remember him.
So please do have a look at Tita's blog, it is a sight to behold, her talents are endless, any one looking for Animal or Human figures will not be disappointed. Thank you Tita.....we love them!!
We received a few more goodies of the Miniature kind and I will post pictures soon.
I would also like to say a special thank you to Simon from http://miniatureenthusiast.blogspot.com/ he made a post about my new blog and without his support I would not have had most of you lovely people join my blog......so thank you Si, you are the sweetest blogger in the land!!! xxxx
