I’ve been writing books and not working on minis, but I’ve started working on the kitchen of the Big House. I decided to take what had been the dining room:
And turn it into a big, eat-in kitchen. This dollhouse has some humongous rooms, so instead of having big, rectangular boxes in which the furniture gets lost, I’m playing with the space. I plan to put in a false wall overlooking a balcony garden, add a breakfast bar, and play around with lighting.
Here we are in the construction zone. It takes a while to build all these (The Kitchen Collection, by Houseworks), but they look cool when done.
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!
