I have recently discovered the joy of making miniature room boxes. This is my newest project--a miniature pet shop. It's even lighted, and believe you me, that was no easy feat. I'm no electrician, I can tell you. But it all turned out quite nicely in the end, don't you think? Click on the pictures to get a closer look.

You would not believe how much time it takes to make something this small. Much more than it would take to build a normal sized miniature. You drop any item from a project this small over a carpet and you'll never find it again. Those little books on the bedroom shelf--I had to remake way too many of those to replace the ones that kept disappearing when I accidentally dropped them. The teddy bear had to be remade three times. This dollhouse is smaller in reality than pictured.

Here is the mermaid dollhouse that I made from scratch. I converted some old shelves and used scrapbook papers as wallpaper. It was way too much fun! Notice the tiny mermaid teddy bear. I hand sculpted the mermaid doll myself. She came out beautifully! Click the photos to see more detail.
