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!

A Ruin in Miniature

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!

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'.

Trash to Treasure part 3

A rubbish bin and ash tray made from a lid with metallic duct tape. The cigarette is a plastic bristle from a brush.


Scale was made from a disposable razor and some other things she found in her trashy collection. Waste basket made from a toothbrush cover.
These serviette dispensers were made from the top part of disposable lighters, stuffed with paperclay.

Bubbler


Another trash to treasure! This is a mini drinking fountain.

I got the idea to make this from a mini friend Doreen after showing these to her. Thanks Doreen! This is made from two wine stoppers found at Dollar Tree, it doesn't have running water yet. I need ideas on how I can make that. I tried Saran Wrap, but that didn't look right to me. I welcome your input."

Trash To Treasure






Tanya from Atlanta
likes to make miniatures from bits and pieces. In fact, many miniaturists do! Good looking miniatures do not have to be expensive, and I think the above photos demonstrate this well.

These salon chairs were made from erasers, wire, and jenga pieces! The sink was made with the help of a ladybug shell from a cheap shop! But isn't the result spectacular? Do you make anything like this? I hope to share more from Tanya soon.

Arcade Games













These 1:18th scale arcade games have been made by Big J.W.
They were made by hand, and each cabinet is made with stiff plywood not balsa wood.
He makes them for his 'Joes'.
