It was with a fair amount of excitement that I received a swap parcel from the fabulous Shopping Sherpa last week. Her ingenuity didn't disappoint. Amongst the coveted swap items, I received a knitted pouffe which I loved the first time I saw it.
I will endeavor to set scenes for all of the items over the coming months so you can see them all. A huge thank you to The Shopping Sherpa for her generous swap parcel =0D
Whilst browsing the WWW for anything miniaturish, I stumbled across Mike Doyle and his ingenious use of Lego Bricks.
Take a wander over to his blog for more fabulous structures. I just love how creepy the innocent childhood toy looks after Mike's makeover. Mowahahahahah!
Another stumbled-upon site I found after browsing for pinball machine images is Matica Papercraft Odd what Google throws at you! Matica released a number of mini items that you can print out and make. I love the replica foam finger gloves. Anyone making a miniature football (soccer) ground??
Before I get back to chores, a quick question for you. When you buy miniature furniture, do you expect it to replicate the full size item exactly? What I mean is, do you want all of the cupboards and draws to open?
Reason I ask, given the sway from complete dollhouses to scene setting, I wondered what mattered to miniature collectors. Sometimes I design a piece of furniture with cupboard doors/drawers and they are time consuming things to make and literally a pain in the butt to get right. I suppose it's the difference between paying pounds and hundreds of pounds for miniatures. Just wondering *shrugs*
Have a great week
