You may have noticed that, although I do mention other websites and blogs from time to time, I don’t have a side-bar list of links on display.
This isn’t because I don’t appreciate the work of other bloggers, but because I know that I don’t have the time to maintain an up-to-date list.
WordPress statistics tell me that the following websites and bloggers have been kind enough to host a link to my blog this year and over the past month I have checked that the links are live.
I look forward to doing more in-depth reading over the Christmas Holidays, with many thanks to all the following:

Finally, a special mention for littleglitterhouses.com, which has downloadable plans for many small building projects, some of which can be adapted for miniature use.
I was looking for information on nativity sets when I came across the website and was amused at the way little snow scene houses (aka “putz”, or “glitter houses”) have travelled around the world and the ways in which they have changed in design as they did so.
For the record, these little houses existed in the UK too. I can remember, when I was very young, helping to make a small village (there was even a postbox!) from cereal box card and gummed coloured paper. The glitter that we used came in a box and the flakes were large, flat and translucent – fascinatingly and memorably different to the silver glitter that came in a glass tube.
