New DHMS Magazine WW1 Project

Swagger Sticks, carried by Officers in the Forces during World War One, were an immediate symbol of authority and here Dolls House & Miniature Scene magazine have brought The Major home on leave with instructions on how to make this Swagger Stick and fine leather gloves in their latest WW1 Exclusive Web Project!
A great project to tackle on the first really dark night (the clocks went back an hour here last night!) of Autumn!

More Fall Miniatures!

Less than two weeks to go until Halloween and just over two weeks until Bonfire Night here in the UK on November 5th so time to share some more of this years Fall miniatures!
From Chocolate Pumpkins and Pumpkin Truffles to a Fall Wreath for decorating the Halls and a Fall Garden Bonfire with Smoke Effect which has already found a wonderful home! Oh, and for gathering 'round the bonfire this November 5th there just absolutely has to be hot Baked Potatoes with melted butter and baked beans!

All Hallows Cake!

Who can resist a slice of cake at any time of the year, but with the nights drawing in for a lot of us, settling down with a delicious sugary treat seems ever more tempting! So, it stands to reason that baking day in the 1:12th scale kitchen will have been a busy one and these individual seasonal cakes, a Halloween Sponge Cake and a Pumpkin Butter Cake, just make you wish they were real so you could sink a spoon into them!!
