Welcome to my mini blog. Its primary purpose is to keep me on track–show progress on projects, ponder new ideas, learn mini tricks, share photos of my minis, and add a helpful tip or two.
I started this morning by knocking a highboy off the top of my dresser (where it sits in the black and white room). It crashed to the floor, and the four legs came off. Nothing too difficult to repair, except I only found three legs and a foot.
The absense of the fourth leg is suspicious. I suspect the thing fell so readily because the fourth leg had already been chewed through.
In fact, part of it may be inside a cat.
Don’t be fooled by his innocent face. He already ate a Sylvia Roundtree shoe.
If I can’t find the piece, I’ll have to locate another cabriole leg. This highboy was a House of Miniatures kit, so will have to find something of the same size. Suggestions are welcome.
Printies in many scales. Wallpaper, books, tablecloths, labels, rugs, fabric patterns, and many, many accessories
Printies (My Small Obsession)
All kinds of links to sites with all kinds of printies (all scales)–wallpaper, flooring, boxes, plates, books, etc etc etc
Wendy's Minis (Pillows galore!)
The beautiful, handcrafted pillows in my collection come from Wendy Smale. In addition to pillows, she offers crystals, minerals, shells, and “scientific collections” for the dollhouse.
Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls, and Toys
Lovely museum in a historic house (house is worth the visit, even if you’re not interested in minis). The collection ranges from antiques to modern artisans. Note the extensive tiny circus! The trip through narrow streets of historic Denver is worth it.
Mini Time Machine Museum, Tucson, AZ
Must be seen to be believed. A huge collection of dollhouses and miniature settings made by prominent artisans, as well as a solid collection of antiques, in a beautiful building designed around the collection. All I can say is… Just Go!
