The AIM Magazine’s Editorial Team:
Bea Broadwood (Editor) office@petite‐properties.com
Once again it is my pleasure as editor, to be able to proudly welcome you to the May edition of the ‘ground breaking’ AIM magazine.
As a little girl I was always fascinated by castles and would spend many a ‘daydream drenched’ afternoon, trying to imagine just what it would be like to actually live in one. For me, personally, there is one particular castle ruin, which can be found nestled in the rolling ‘Purbeck’ hills of Dorset that I have always been illusively drawn to and inspired by. In short it is my happy place and it seems that I am not alone.

Sadly though, as an adult ‘without the aid of a winning lottery ticket’ that particular residential aspiration still eludes me. However, as every committed miniaturist knows only too well, the miniature world is not bound by the restrictive financial limitations encountered in our ‘full size’ reality; enabling any day dreamed fantasy to take form and become a tangible reality – albeit in miniature of course!

Castles are by their very nature, drenched in history and saturated with a majestic sense of protection and romance. It is therefore no surprise that miniaturists all over the world find their captivating architecture a point of inspiration and so, with the onset of May and with spring now in full flow, AIM members have come together to share their fascinating world of castle life. From the mystical magic of an unseen fantasy world on page 12 to the stunning ‘real life’ castles of Portugal on page 122, this month’s edition of the AIM magazine has all the inspiration you might need for fortress living!

So if you are planning to realise your very own childhood daydreams and fortified aspirations, settle back with a cuppa and look no further…! AIM’s miniature world of castle living beckons; and best of all ‐ no winning lottery ticket is required!
