Fireplaces for William and Mary dolls' house attic
These two little fireplaces are for the attic rooms in the William and Mary House. Each is built into an angled chimney breast that will accommodate the slant in the hipped ends of the roof.
While they're both built of the same moulding, the moulding was put on the chimney breast differently in each case -- totally by accident. I sort of liked that they were complementary but not matching, so I left it that way! The top one has been trimmed with coffee stirrers and lengths of mini turnings, and the bottom one just with coffee stirrers.
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.
