Our son has been performing as a magician since he was three years old and he is 26 now. I have always wanted to make a magician's scene. I finally did it in quarter scale as a silk fabric kit. There is a shelf with a Merlin costume, hat and books. It also includes a magician's table, fold out suitcase filled with magic tricks and posters etc. It was so much fun and I hope others might have a miniature quarter scale boy in a scene who would enjoy practising all these tricks. It is available through our web site and eBay store.
My new Book of the Month for July, shown above is available through eBay and our web site for half price for the month of July. It is called Flower Children of Summer. This book has such wonderful, whimsical illustrations by Elizabeth Gorden and was originally published in 1910. I was so pleased to notice in a Romantic Homes magazine this month that they featured a beautiful Enchanted fairy tea party for young girls. It is a great magazine for miniature ideas. In this Once upon a time tea party, they had young girls looking at a vintage Flower Children book with illustrations that I used in my Flower Children of Spring book. There were beautiful dragonfly cookies with everything in mauves, pinks and green pastel colours mixed with vintage items. Very inspiring! Diane Sedo who produced the article has a web site with wonderful fanciful ideas. http://sentimentalcelebrations.com/home
