Woodside Cottage

Well we now have a bit of a break before our next fair, so am doing what I enjoy doing most, painting.
The one above is called 'Woodside Cottage' and adds to my array of cottage paintings, this is where I can let the artist inside me run riot, I love using colours as you can most probably tell with most of my miniatures.
There are a lot more like this on the ideas list installed in my brain.

We had a reasonable fair at the Chateau on Sunday, but nowhere near as good as last year, don't know if it was because we were in a side room, but there didn't seem to be anywhere as near as many visitors.

Hopefully by the time our next fair comes along I will have rebuilt the stand, desperately needs doing now as we have added to our range so much this past year.
Furniture is quite big on our list of ideas.

Red Bridge Cottage

Red Bridge Cottage
Well it's almost Chateau Impney time, just a few days and we shall be exhibiting just up the road at Droitwich, possibly the best venue and fair in the Midlands, it's set in a fairy tale type of Chateau, easy to get to and plenty of parking.

Am busy painting now and restocking my stand till the weekend, there will be plenty of new paintings on my stand, the stand is so different compared to last year, so many new items on display and lots more to come yet.
Perhaps this time next year I shall have to increase the table size!

Supposed to be the last fair of the year for Harvington Miniatures, but may do possibly one more, watch this space.

New tankards

Well I have been quiet the past few weeks, I have had a bad cold and trying to get a bit of stock ready for our next couple of fairs, this Sunday November 11th we are at Nantwich in Cheshire and the following Sunday at the Chateau Impney in Droitwich.
Then it will be two months before the next Fair, which will be at Stafford in Jan 2013.
Lots of ideas will hopefully come to fruition by then.
The two tankards above are the latest addition to our commemorative mugs line, to see our complete range you will have to pop along to one of the fairs we attend, so far we are looking at around 20 fairs for 2013, so guess we are going to be kept busy.
