Miniatura Preview - 1:24th Potting Bench Kit..!

Good afternoon everyone…!
Despite summer edging slowly away, here in the PP office we still have the ‘miniature’ garden very much in mind and so to compliment our forthcoming 1:24th ‘Greenhouse’ and ‘Lean To’, we are also launching a traditional ‘Potting Bench’ kit; which comes complete with soil!  (Just add paint & glue!)
This new half scale kit  (along with all our other NEW products) will be available from the Petite Properties’ stand at the forthcoming Autumn Miniatura show at the NEC Birmingham next month.

Miniatura Preview - 1:24th Greenhouse or 'Lean To' Kits..!

Good evening everyone…!
After having a seemingly quiet ‘online’ summer presence, now (as predicted) the tide has officially turned and announcements of new Petite Properties’ kits are coming thick and fast…
So….following the popularity of our recently released 1:48th ‘greenhouse kit’ and our 1:48th ‘lean to’ kit, we are delighted to announce that we will also be launching the same two kits ‘up scaled’ into (the much loved) 1:24th scale… 
Both of these new half scale kits will be available from the Petite Properties’ stand at the forthcoming Autumn Miniatura held at the NEC Birmingham next month.

Miniatura Preview - 1:24th Vintage Kitchen Cabinet..!

Good morning everyone…!
As the last days of August tick by Mr Bea and I are gearing up for next month’s Autumn miniatura show and today we are delighted to preview yet another new 1:24th kit which we will be launching exclusively at the show…
Our  new ‘Vintage Kitchen Cabinet’ kit has been designed to perfectly accompany our new ‘Vintage cooker’ kit, which we will also be releasing at the show!...
Over the next few weeks we will be showcasing many new products which will be officially  launched at Autumn Miniatura and as we will have new houses and furniture kits in 1:24th, 1:48th AND 1:144th scales; quite simply, there will be something to excite every smaller scale enthusiast!

1:24th scale Vintage Cooker Kit..!!

A quick check of the calendar tells me that the PP office and workshop is now officially in the grips of  our biannual ‘Big M’ count down…

Despite our recent time off (for a very special family wedding) Mr Bea and I have also collectively spent the summer months working very hard to ensure that this coming Autumn the Petite Properties’ stand at the NEC Birmingham will be simply groaning with the weight of so many exciting new products and small scale kits…

So….as our final count down to Autumn Miniatura officially begins, we hope you will enjoy taking a peek at our first ’kit preview’ of the new ’dolls house season’ - our nostalgic  1:24th scale ’Vintage Cooker’ kit, which will be launched exclusively at the show!!

A wedding in the family..!

For the last couple of weeks my office chair has sat empty and the PP office has been like a house the night before Christmas; aka - nothing has stirred…!

The reason… well it was a very happy one…
Last Saturday my eldest daughter Lucy married Richard (the love of her life) in a beautiful ceremony at our local church.
Needless to say it was a very special occasion for my husband Tony and I and I just thought I would share with you my reading from  the ceremony…

Rest assured come Friday when (finally) the wedding dust has settled I will be back in the PP office, but for now I hope you all enjoy the poem I wrote especially for the occasion…

A Quiet Love...

In the quiet breaking dawn
At the rising of the morning sun
As light is cast on each new day
I promise to love you…

Amidst our laughter, each passing year
Protected by love’s embrace
And encircled, in my arms, adored
I will love you…

At wordless, painful times
Through silence or familiar touch
When you feel me near, you will know
That I, love you…

During loss or pain,
When in confusion, doubt we stand
Remember as my trembling hand seeks yours
I do love you…

With time… heeds change
Reflection… growth; our lives exchanged
Yet in the silence of each gentle pause, remember
I love only you…

From our beginning to our very end
From winter’s chill, through endless summer days
None will have passed to taste regret
For I have loved you...

With each smouldering candle,
each passing chime
With every whispered word or silent stolen glance
All were witnessed by a promise strong
To love you… completely… my lifetime long…
