Adele, Tom and Ben are so looking forward to visiting the Miniatura Dollshouse Show this year and finally the day of their visit has arrived! Esther, the Sunday School teacher, has agreed with their parents that she would escort them as the parents were all too busy to take the children themselves. Find out how the visit went.............and see who they met for the very first time too!

Ben has found Dee Daw Designs because Adele has asked him if he could take her voucher she cut out of the Dollshouse and Miniature Scene magazine to get herself a miniature cut out kit for HER dolls in her dollshouse to visit the show too!

Tom is enjoying a chat to a young girl he found sitting on the floor eating her sandwiches and looking at the brochure. She tells him her name is Grace but lots of her friends WILL insist on calling her "Gracie"!
Gracie is waiting for her Mum who has just left her for a short time only...............we hope her Mum comes back soon.
Tom, Adele and Ben tell Esther what a great time they have had looking at all the different kinds of miniatures. The boys loved it just as much as Adele too!
Many thanks to Dee Daw Designs for the free (with a coupon taken out of "Dollshouse and Miniature Scene" magazine) cut out dollshouse kit which included a miniature pair of tickets, sandwiches, cup for coffee and catalogue complete with floor plan! We thought that at least a few of our "children" would enjoy a "virtual" trip too as a result!
Thanks to Christiane Berridge, Dee Daws Designs and Jane Davies for letting us photograph their stalls.
Grace is a future new addition to our St. Hilary's family...............check us out in the New Year when she will officially move to Daffodill Green with her family. She was made by Jane Davies and is a 14 joint doll!
Lichfield Dolls House Club put this display on and allowed photography in return for donations to a cancer charity.
