I always wanted a dolls house and in 1999 I set about my journey into miniatures!! What a Journey! I got sucked in and I am still working down the scales at 1/144th at the moment. I built my first house in 1/12th scale. I enjoyed collecting all the items and making what I could. I spent 8 weeks making a patchwork quilt hand pieced and stitched for the bed. It was a labour of love and worth every stitch. I have many treasured items collected on my travels around the world. My second scale was 1/24th so it is almost completed. I got a comission to do the Street Scene in 2004 seen here and it is proudly displayed in a Pub in the Galway area.

I took to de cluttering my house and have taken a step into the auction room to see what all the fuss is about. Well my first muse was the total insignificent value of my so called precious items that I have been minding for so long!! Looks like I have been harbouring a load of rubbish!! I am delighted now that I have put the stuff in and will take whatever I get for it. As for the family silver, what a load of nonsense!! I have been listeneing to people go on about collecting a lifetime and see now what rubbish it all is. anyway the auction is on the 16th and I will wait and see what comes about. Then I will let you know how I am going to blow the sale money or if I actually owe the auction room money instead. the BBC Antiques roadtrip if coming from the auction room here in Ireland for a first so maybe that is the buzz I will get!!!!!
