Christmas Miniatures... before shop closes!

Yep, shop's closing in a couple of days as I am off to Blighty (UK), so I'll have to close up for a week or two (or potentially longer). Here's a reminder of Christmas miniatures which are currently available at my online Pixie Dust Miniatures store....

And don't miss some new Christmas 2011 designs over at my other store here. :)

Black Friday Sale!!!

Christmas shopping officially starts here! For all my American friends, I'd like to say 'Happy Thanksgiving'! Hope you all had wonderful days with your families. I'm stuffed, having just got back from turkey, yams and cranberry sauce at my boyfriend's parents' house. :)

To all my non-American friends, I might need to explain what 'Black Friday' is. It's the day after Thanksgiving in America when people traditionally start their holiday shopping and most major shops offer big discounts for the next 3 days.

So I am happy to offer everyone 20% off for the next 3 days (starting tonight actually) and ending on Sunday at midnight PST.

Go to my online store here... and enter the code: BLACK after you click to buy but before you pay, and 20% will be deducted from the total of your order, but not from shipping. Don't miss out on the same discount over at my other store (here) too.

For those that don't yet know, I am moving from the US to the UK in a little over a week from now. So after that time the shops will both be closed for a period as I adjust to a new life over in Britain, unpack... and await my boxes which will arrive 6-10 weeks after I do. So if there's something you'd like you'd better get it now as it could be a while before it's available again!

Cinderella Pumpkins

Continuing the fairytale magic... here are my Cinderella Pumpkins. They are so pretty! I'm really pleased with how they turned out. They have my signature shimmer to the stems, they sparkle and they glow in the dark. Made to a high standard in one inch (1:12) scale and available at my online shop very soon...

PS I took these photos in my Enchanted Forest Miniature Model Set, so let me know what you think of the setting. :) If you're interested in the forest, then you might want to follow my professional work blog and find out more about the short film it's for.

Magic Shop... Final Reveal

You might have caught a glimpse of this magic shop in this previous post... I wasn't able to show much because I promised an exclusive to The Dolls House Magazine. But now that they've run their article I can show all now! You can stay up to date with miniature models better by following my professional blog here by the way.

So here's 'Boggart's Bazaar' - the fantastical magic shop made for a very special client by commission earlier this year. It's 1:24 (half inch) scale.

Find more photos on my Flickr Gallery. ;)

Grinny Teapots for English Witches

Being English, tea is more than something to accompany a biscuit, or a way to kill time at the office. Tea's essential and consumed 15-25 times a day. I don't think I quite realised how much I relied upon tea until I moved to America and found that it's ruddy hard to find. Many of my favourite restaurants and cafes don't serve tea. (Only ice tea!)
3 days ago I took a morning hot air balloon ride over 'wine county' in California. Up at 4 am, at the site at 5 am and there was an abundance of hot coffee and NO TEA! And then no tea to be found back at the hotel afterwards.

So, for the English witches and the odd eccentric American witch, here's a fun and unique little tea apparatus. A teapot which is part of my 'GrInNy Range'. (See more Grinny items here.)

Carefully handmade in one inch (1:12) scale, with glow-in-the-dark eyes and teeth! Available at my online shop.

Golden Goose Eggs

Tonight from the magical world of Pixie Dust... some golden eggs carefully stolen from the nest of the renowned Golden Goose. No mean feat. These eggs were difficult to acquire and with careful incubation our hope is to hatch the goslings and potentially corner the market on golden eggs in the future. (Buy your shares in Pixie Dust Miniatures Ltd now).

Okay, I'll be serious now... Here are my miniature Golden Goose Eggs in one inch scale, carefully handmade to a high standard and nestled in a lovely little straw-lined crate. Available at my online shop momentarily. ;)
