Miners Cottage

Hello All,

While I have been a little quite in blog world I have not been neglecting my miniatures. With newly restored miniature mojo (thanks to Ilona) I managed to complete the textiles in the twins room, bedding and drapery done! However, I have not yet photographed my progress and intend to do that soon along with the items from Ilona I have yet to reveal.

In the meantime I thought I would show you this lovely little 48th scale Miners cottage I purchased from Emily at Architecture of tiny distinction a while ago. It is an absolutely darling little house, so perfectly and skilfully put together. Emily modelled it on a miners cottage in Tasmania, although there are many similar to this one throughout Victoria and beyond.

       Note the beautifully detailed wall paper complete with borders and the oh so tiny fire place.

I couldn't resist taking a few snaps with the light flooding though, it gives it such a cottage feel, so warm and cosy, I can't wait to find some teeny tiny furniture for it. Whilst this is a dollhouse for a dollhouse, I enjoy having it displayed on my living room shelves, I have quite a fascination for miners cottages, so quaint and reminiscent of the Australian settlers and their lives. For those that are interested click here for a little information on Australian miners huts.

Finally, I would like to thank those that voted for Mia's cyber bulling video. Mia was placed in the top 5 winning a $500 voucher and an encouraging supply of confidence. As it turned out she won on her merits and not by popular vote as was first thought, a clever way for the organisers to get exposure which is the major objective. Thank you so much to those that emailed me about boosting exposure, your support is very much appreciated.

A warm welcome to my new followers, I will be posting soon with an update of the twins room.
