Happy Holidays!

Apparently the depot which serves Scotland's Co-op supermarkets has just received its first delivery of Easter stock!!!  As the first Easter Eggs won't appear in their stores until the middle of next week on to more imminent matters and a Scottish island has chartered a Hercules aircraft to ensure the turkey takes center stage on Christmas Dinner tables after the ferry was cancelled due to bad weather! The wonderfully varied and exciting life of an islander!!

We've had such fun putting together all this years seasonal miniatures and we'll leave you for now with our 2012 Christmas Collection!

A very Happy & Peaceful Christmas!

Nearing The End Of The Year!

The frost is so crisp at the moment that it looks like snow! The sunlight looks almost like that moment just before sunset starts to fall all day and the old bridge has icicles a foot long hanging beneath, it must be almost Christmas!! With Hogmanay now just 3 weeks away though our thoughts have to turn towards the biggest night of the year here in Scotland and it seems only fair that the miniature world get the chance to ring in 2013 in style too with this special and really fun cake which has already found its party venue for New Years Eve!

Winter Snow Cakes!

Very busy completing some Festive commissions this week but snow definitely seems to be the theme for this first week of December! These 4 Winter Snow Cake Slices with sugar snowballs, a marzipan log and a piece of holly have already found a new home to wing their way to but we couldn't resist sharing them with everyone! They're extremely apt for the weather we find ourselves surrounded by on the Island just now and our trip to the Post Office today was accompanied not only by glorious Winter sunshine but also by a recent fall of snow turning everything into a glistening wonderland! We even came back with a few photos, one or two of which are below!

Layered Mocha Latte & Cookies!

There's always something about a layered coffee that just says you're treating yourself and it's just that bit special so those living in our miniature scenes shouldn't have to miss out either! It's always the best of fun creating new additions to the speciality coffees we've featured in our collection and this Layered Mocha Latte & Cookies was no exception!!
