I don't know about you but we're looking forward to a long, hot summer. That means you'll need to break out the flip-flops and paddling pool. Thankfully Barbara Schuckman has everything you need for when the sun is shining, and we take a look at some of her latest creations here.

To say Barbara has been in the hobby for a while is a bit of an understatement. This talented lady has been designing and hand crafting contemporary, one twelfth and half inch (1/24th) scale, collectible miniature accessories since 1978.

And if the sun doesn't happen to shine Barb has plenty of other wonderful minis for every occassion. By Barb's ceramic dinnerware, ceramic decorative plates and Judaic (Jewish) miniatures, in addition to her baby's nursery, school, sports, pet and giftware product lines, can all be seen on her website.


Perfect footware for any beach or pool scene
Don't you just love the whale in the pool? And those matching flip-flops.
From ducky rubber rings to diving fins, Barb's got the lot
Stay safe in that mini pool. You can't be too careful looking after your doll's house residents on the beach or by the pool. 
That little beach bag and blanket makes us want to head down to the water right away
