How to Have Fun With Miniatures

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is about fun. One of the many things I like to do for fun is build my dollhouses. Miniature dollhouses come in various ranges from 1:12 all he way down to 1/44 scale. I have mainly worked with the one inch to one foot scale but will some day explore the world of one half-inch to one foot (if my eyes can do it). Thought I’d share with you some photos of a couple of my miniatures.

This house boat is my current project. I plan on making it a “glam-boat” with lots of bright colors and feminine touches.

Sorry I can’t show you a photo of what it will look like finished because the box is packed away for our move.

This is my Victorian cottage. I imagine an old Confederate General’s widow living here with her seven cats. I’m still working on the landscaping.

This is a miniature woodland scene created in an old 20 gallon fish tank.

Does anyone else build miniature scenes or dollhouses?
