more pictures

These are a few pictures I've taken today!





reception room in caroline's home


Dinah's oriental bedroom, waiting for a couple of accessories to finish the look..... trying to find square light fitting ...




kitchen....

I searched for the complete 'mini world miele kitchen by theo klein toys' for ages and couldn't find it, so I have bought the appliances seperately. The miele cooker, washing machine and fridge are from ebay, while the miele microwave and dishwasher are from elf miniatures, i'll get the vacuum cleaner soon :-) I'll have to make my own kitchen units or customise some furniture I already have :-)



I bought some re-ment stuff and the attention to detail is lovely! I really love my new flask its so cute! and it goes well with this picnic basket I found at my local dolls house shop :-)


My Caroline's home by Barton toys still a work in progress :-)





the kitchen in my "Caroline's home" by Barton! still awaiting some stuff for it :-)

miniature furniture

I love miniatures, I see a piece of furniture I like, I buy it , then I think hmmmm! where can I fit this in my house? I love modern stuff, and it is so hard to find truly modern stuff that reflects our current lifestyles! I find myself using words like contemporary to search for items, as modern could be classed as anything from the 1900's which is not what I am looking for......... I have been searching for an affordable haha! modern house for my dolls and I would absolutely adore having the malibu beach house by the dolls house emporium, or maybe even the clearview house, :-) but for now looking at the pictures in their catalogue will have to do :-)



I have some pieces of furniture which I love some in 1:16, some in 1:10 and the rest in 1:12 scales, here are some pictures.... I will keep adding to this as my camera can be a bit 'moody' sometimes :-) like a sullen teenager refusing to come out of their room......

Ok blame it on the credit crunch or poor sales, Dinah has had to downsize her shop/boutique from her 2 storey property to a shelf in my "favourite things" cabinet but she's cool with it ...

Oh! no! now look at the mess I've made! Dinah will be back soon.... and when is the wardrobe going to be delivered?!! Aw! I'm too tired to finish unpacking, and decorating, my room I'll just finish my magazine first....uh oh! what happened to all the words......


I was inspired by some pictures and scenes I have recently seen on modern miniatures to try creating a modern scene, ..... I have done this in an Ikea CD storage case and this is the result....

a room in a cupboard







I had some space in my cabinet where I display my Dawn and Pippa dolls and I thought, ....what if I create a kitchen in corner, would it work?.... well, here's my "country kitchen scene" :-) I love the picnic basket..all I need is a tartan blanket and silver thermos then I'll be ready to pack the basket! Breakfast is my favourite time of the day.........

Vintage Dolls House





















This is my first vintage dolls house, I saw it at my local junk shop and I loved it on site, it needed so much work done to restore it and I had no idea how to start! my first instinct was to find out more about it. I searched online and found a lovely shop called KT Miniatures that had an image of a similar house on their site. Celia was brilliant, I asked if I could send some pictures and I sent them and a brief description and she answered right back with a long email about the house and similar houses, My house is similar to the triang houses and is known as a "Dolly Mixture" House from the 1930s the white metal windows with rods holding them, and no hinges, suggest it is pre-war" I was amazed! then begins the dilemma...can I restore it to its original glory or should I refurbish it and using the basic structure make my own individual styled house...hmmmm! well i 'm still thinking...
