A Day of Miniatures............

And I can't believe it has been a week since we made the trip to Grafton (an hour and a half's drive from us) to visit Yvonne McSwann.  We had a wonderful day interacting with the Grafton Miniature's Group - good food, good company, and a lot of laughs.

But what I really wanted to show you is the extent of Yvonne's collection.  Dolls, bears, miniatures, scapbooking and the list goes on - she does it all - and collects it all.  I will try and show you some of her collection now.............

....but first, an introduction to Yvonne!

As you walk in to her "hobby" room, this is what you see - and it's just one third of her whole area!

Left side of the first room

Right side of the first room

These 4 photos are some of the detail on the centre table!  Could not get it all as lots of moving parts and my camera could not cope!

One of her dolls houses - work in progress!

Centre table in second room!  Again lots of moving things!

Okay - now I'm going to stop.  Believe me, I could go on....but I think you've all got the idea now.

Above this whole area is the attic, which is stacked with boxes - all neatly labelled.  These house all her "Christmas" collection which get to be displayed in the holiday season.  I wish I  could be so organised!! hahahahaha!!!!

Anyway, the short story is that we had a wonderful day.

Hope you are all having fun and keeping in good health.  Talk again soon, when I hope I can at last have some pics of my completed Willunga!!

Take care!
