It was my birthday last week.
Perhaps the most intriguing present I received was from our next door neighbour, She'd heard that I have a dolls house which has been developing into an installation since I obtained it to help with my research for a painting, 'Fools Gold' (which you can see on my PRINTS FOR SALE page).
When I said I had carried on collecting objects so that it looked as though the house was frozen in time on Christmas Eve, she gave me a knowing look.
I was presented with the most beautiful box of cards, wrapping paper, trees, paper chains, all in miniature. It turns out she is a dolls house enthusiast and makes everything herself.
There are pictures of the house on my Facebook page.
