Miniatura Preview - 1:24th Dolls Houses

Good evening  everyone…
With Autumn Miniatura only a couple of days away, I am delighted to be able to bring you a sneak preview of just some of the  great value 1:24th dolls houses which will be available to purchase from the Petite Properties’ stand at the NEC show this coming weekend!
All of our unique, hand crafted 1:24th houses are sold pre constructed - with the house on the stand, being the one you take home! 
However, we only have one of each property and so they are sold on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis!
So why not visit us early to avoid disappointment!

Miniatura Preview - Something a bit different!

Good evening  everyone… 
I am just looking in to give you yet another sneak preview of a new 1:48th 'Basic House Kit' which Mr Bea and I will be launching at Autumn Miniatura...

But first a warning… for those of you who are unfamiliar with everyday 20th century UK architecture this latest design might make you scratch your head, for those of you who know the UK and its traditional ’Suburbs’ well - it may simply make you smile...
2 & 4 Birchwood Avenue (pictured above) is a (very) typical 1940s - 1950s semi detached suburban style property which can be found all over the UK in the 'new estates' which sprung up everywhere during this time period - indeed although I now live in an old stone cottage, I myself was born in such a property and the new design draws strongly from the suburbs of Hertfordshire where I grew up in the 1970s and 1980s…

Now I know that this latest design won't be 'everyone's cup of tea' but for me (and many others) it holds so much nostalgia that I simply couldn't resist offering it as a highly unique quarter scale kit!!

2 & 4 Birchwood Avenue is our largest kit to date and has 10 rooms in total (4 in each house plus 2 attic rooms) and the kit will be priced at just £24.99!

FREE AIM Online Magazine - September's Issue - Out NOW!!

As a busy summer slips quietly into an exciting autumn, it is once again my pleasure to introduce this latest ‘food filled’ edition of the AIM magazine.
Over the summer I have personally enjoyed a very special family celebration, one which has reinforced to me that there is indeed no greater pleasure in life that to able to sit down and share a leisurely meal with family and good friends and it seems that the highly talented members of AIM agree!

This month AIM members have collectively chosen to focus on our theme:  ‘Come dine with us..!’ and together they have filled the pages of this very special September issue with a stunning celebration of entertaining ‘in miniature’.

The pages of this new issue are crammed full of inspiration and ideas for the international miniature diner!  So whether you are planning to create a realistic dining setting in your dolls house or you simply want to bring a kitchen scene to life with stunning, mouth watering food; look no further we have it all!

This new September edition of the ground breaking AIM magazine is also awash with many fabulous free projects for you to try your hand at, from printable plates (in three scales)on pages 16 and 47 to creating a stunningly realistic salad without the use of clay on page 52  In short there is something for every miniaturist to try!
So as you enjoy the last of the summer sunshine, why not put your feet up and come dine with us!
