I don't think many people know I belong to a UK based Dollshouse swap group. I haven't been a member for long, but have always loved the idea of doing swaps. The group is a yahoo online group and is run by Rebecca Farwell. There are always different types of swaps to get involved with and you can do as many as you want. If anyone is interested in joining, there is the link on the side bar. You have to live in the UK to be a member. This is a picture of a little pod baby I made as a birthday swap. She is made from polymer clay and needlefelted pod.

She has eventually got some hair and a hat. She has taken a while to complete, as I've had a bit of a blip this last week. I hope I am back on an even keel now.... Things crop up sometimes that kerb creativity!! Hilda Honeyman,(mother of the bride) will be in my fair box for next Autumns fairs. I'm afraid this photo does not do her justice. Love Jain xx

Sorry these pictures are not in order. Can't seem to work out how to get them where I want.
These are of some of the gorgeous things I bought at SIMP. I'm afraid the nursery is no further along as I'm waiting on some bits. The photos are of a corner cupboard from Veronique Lux filled with some lovely little bits. The dog on a drum is also by Veronique. The 2 automaton toys are Lawrence St.leger, I have had these for a while. The little ceramic bunnies are the work of Veronique Cornish. Little heart dishes by Paris miniatures ( the spotty one) and the other is Elizabeth Causeret.The little undressed doll I bought from Jane Laverick, not at SIMP.
The next picture is a fabulous little hand painted child's table and chairs made by Valerie-Anne Casson. It was jut what I was looking for for the nursery. On the table are 3 cup cakes by Paris miniatures, a jug again by Elizabeth Causeret and a beautifully stitched tea cosy by Rosanna. The tea cosy looks a little big on the table, as it is a child's table, but fit's so nicely with the other things.
The first picture is introducing Pippi, my first child for the nursery. She is made by the very talented Catherine Menuire. It was an exciting buy, as you had to first get a raffle ticket and then attend the draw. When your ticket is pulled out, you may choose 1 doll to buy. I waited very patiently, twiddling my crystal, in the hope my ticket was drawn in time to purchase Pippi.It was, it was meant to be!! Jain xx
