I am having fun playing around with the new LED lights from NovaLyte. I bought two from Mainly Minis, but they’re available all over the place and relatively inexpensive (gotta like that).
In the “Big House” I’m remodeling, I’m taking advantage of the depth of the house to put in false walls and outside scenes (it’s an open-front, cabinet type house).
I tried out the NovaLyte “daylight white” strip light, and wow, it really looks good. The chandelier in the room I’m currently working on throws a warm yellow light, and the cooler light of the LED behind the window looks so real.
I’ll post a picture as soon as I get some baseboards in and the floor cleaned up.
I’m toying with the idea of trying some of their can lights for the kitchen.
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!
