Am I out of my mind.....????

Well, today I thought I had better get a move on and do some work on the Tudor Style House for the SAME fair in August (South Australian Miniature Enthusiasts) We have a candle shop called "Wax Worx". Having made the candles last week, decided to get them into their places.

..............candles ready for sorting
candles in their respective pots.........


There are many different scented candles, shapes and sizes....yes "looney" I hear you all saying.....


Then there is the nice shelve display on longer burning candles......
And of course, there is the shopfront counter....








Like any good shop these days, there is the opportunity to do a workshop and learn how to do things yourself, so this is the workshop area, but is also the production area for the candles....


Not only is this a shop, but the owners often live here when they are busy. (They also have a little cottage in outside the village where they go for a break) You will see the new bed that they bought just recently.....

This rug in one that I finally finished for the upstairs level where the owners go to relax in front of a nice warm fire at the end of the day. (Took almost 1 year to complete on and off and is done in petit point)


This is the shop and home from the front view.
If you would like to see more....please come to the Festival of Miniatures & Dollhouses - Saturday & Sunday 9th - 10th August 2008 at the St Peters Town Hall, Payneham Road, St Peters, South Australia. The theme this year is "An English Village". It is well worth the trip and lots of fun with raffles, traders, displays, lucky dips and fresh home made eatery too!

What a beautiful shop. The miniature world facinates me but unfortunately lack of space and finances mean I can only look and drool.

Love and hugs Gina xxx
