Welcome to my world of miniatures and dollhouses in all scales with side trips into fairy and fantasy, and the beauty of the real world.

Beds for Brambly Houses
Well Autumn has finally arrived and the winds have a chilly bite when gardening so rather than plant bulbs and clear up I've huddled indoors and thought I could update the blog.
The first trials of the beds for the little houses have been made using a variety of materials including printies. Three of these will be used in the houses but it was definately interesting to try different ways of doing things. Each of these beds are just over 1/2 inch in length.
Also for my own fun I have tried having a go with making tiny mice for the homes based on the books and here are the first three attempts. Poor Primrose in the middle had one of her ears squashed when I replaced a rather thicker tail for a smaller one, I didn't notice until I took the photo, she is fine now all pristine with two perky ears. Their little arms and tails are poseable and all I will say is a big thank you to whoever evented tweezers. You can see how tiny they are, if I'd pushed the mice together they would have fitted in-between the inch marker on the rulers.
I'm now going to try some other pieces out to fill the little 'balls' with and hopefully keep my sanity.
Will keep you updated with progress. Happy mini-ing and hugs.
