News from Kays Mini Dolls

AIM Member Kay of Kays Mini Dolls has asked us to pass on the following news to her followers and customers.
"I have closed down my website, kaysminidolls and moved all the miniature doll inventory to my Etsy shop.
The website was getting expensive and hard to keep updated and since I've had the Etsy shop since 2009 I decided to just use Etsy to sell my miniature dolls and other miniature work. For me, Etsy has been very successful.
I have listed several new 1/12 scale miniature dolls in the past couple of weeks. I have also returned to making porcelain half dolls in regular sizes. But, as always, my first love is the miniature ladies"

Beautiful Flowers by Marianne Cooke


AIM Member, Marianne Cooke recently showed us her wonderful new set of flowers and told us about the inspiration behind this fabulous little set of flowers.
"I recently bought a little collection of Victorian style floral containers made by Spanish artisan Nieves PalacĂ­n in my favourite blue and white colourway - perfect for a traditional or a shabby chic modern home. I decided to keep to the blue and white theme and filled each with a different white flower: open, old-roses and fresh daisies for the two jugs, French lavender, begonias and tulips for the variously sized oval pots. They were great fun to make."
I'm sure you will agree that they are lovely and they are currently for sale through Marianne's Etsy shop.
