There were several displays with a garden theme.
Northside Miniatures (from the north shore of Sydney, I believe) had decided on a miniature gardens focus for their members' creations this year:
|Displays by Elizabeth and David Allcroft (grey bowl) and Joan O'Connor (box with steps).|
|Displays by Pam Lyne (flowerpot at back left), Anne Lampe (glass bowl), Greta Gray (flowerpot in centre), Joan O'Connor (fenced roombox), Faye Ramsay (flowerpot on right).|
|Display by Pat Nowytager. Sorry, I don't know who made the garden in the bowl on the left.|
|Displays by Barbara Jones, Sue White, Roslyn Hamilton and Noelene Freestone.|
|Another tiny cottage by Roslyn Hamilton. The snow globe at the back is by Dennis Hamilton.|
|Barb Loo: Pirates Ahoy!|
|A clever name - Hobpot Cottage, by Narelle Trembath! Out the front there are Pinecones For Sale.|
Another display which used a container as the basis, in this case an Anzac biscuit tin:
I love how there are miniature Anzac biscuit tins in the display!
|Anzacs by Maree Flaherty.|
Div had gone down a scale this year. In past years, her creations have been in 12th scale, but as she is running out of space, she has started to work in 24th scale! Her display this year was the house of Lucian Gray, an illustrator. She hadn't been able to print out the backstory she usually has, but as you can see, the house and its furnishings are all in art deco style.
|This is the only photo I took of the whole house open. It has the protective perspex, as Div wasn't there at the time to take it off. The other photos were taken without the perspex, just before Div packed it up - thanks, Div!|
