Thank you, all of you -- you are most welcome here, and we really appreciate your interest and comments. I've said it before, but being connected via the internet to a community of miniaturists has been the most marvellous part, for me, of this trip into dolls houses. We don't have a miniatures club in Nova Scotia where I live, so I really do think of all of us, all around the world, as one big club!
Anneke, a miniaturist from the Netherlands, who blogs at pieplyts.
Casey is an American miniaturist from Arizona, who blogs at Casey's Minis (although I always think of her site as Tessie's Minis, since a tiny witch named Tessie seems to make an awful lot of things happen in Casey's mini life!)
And there's also maria de los angeles mendez gomez, aurus35, christine, Loli, Mares, mini_babies, Angela, Natalie, Wanda and Michelle who don't seem to have blogs. Welcome, anyway, and if I've missed your blog or website, please let me know and I'll add it!
This blog chronicles the adventures of a group of Canadians building a 1:12 scale medieval or Tudor dolls' house or dolls' castle. We're also working on a William and Mary era dollhouse circa 1700, featuring Jacobean, Carolean and Queen Anne furniture. Dollhouse aficionados, those who enjoy making or sharing doll house miniatures, and people who enjoy sharing crafts with children may enjoy the adventures of this group.
I built the background image of this site using some of the fabulous work from Vintage Retro Grunge. The "Green Man" reproduction medieval tile on the bottom right is by Kate Tiler. The other two, the griffon and the happy little creature (possibly a lion with a bagel?), are both by Pataki Tiles.
