Some Miniature Shops

Part of the display were some little shops made by various people. Here's some photos of the flower boutique. More photos to come!

I'm not sure what scale this is, but it's inside a wooden wine bottle box. Click the picture to get a closer look! Penfolds is a local winery.

Fisherman's Cottage

This cottage has been very interestingly made. The front of the house pictured above is actually a cover! It sits on top of what is below, and the windows match up. So clever!

Irish Cottage

This dollhouse is based on her grandparent's cottage in Ireland, a place she used to go and stay at. The question is- where was there room for her! I suppose on the floor but even that would be squishy! What a great tribute to her grandparents.

I love that the bed is partially behind a chimney!

Terrace House

One of my friends made this terrace house. I really like how you can see inside the cupboards in the kitchen from the back! Make sure to click to get a closer look!

Something You Need To Check Out

Sorry for being such a negligent blogger. University and life got in the way, there was no time for miniatures. I'm hoping to bring the blog back asap!

Here's a link you really need to check out.

In the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, you'll find Colleen Moore's Fairy Castle. It has absolutely gorgeous wonderful things made from the original companies, such as real miniature royal doulton china.

There's even a virtual tour if you click 'the exhibit'.
