Christmas Sweeties

The girls are enjoying some Christmas cake, cookies and peppermint bark. Everything you see here is in dollhouse (1:12) scale, which I think is charming and cute paired with my tiny ball jointed dolls. Blossom’s candy cane sriped outfit is from Denver Doll and the super sweet dress on Riley is from Trillian&Co. on Etsy.Continue reading “Christmas Sweeties”

Even though it’s so tiny, it helps to think how ‘real’ food is made. Sometimes the best inspirations come from cookbooks,Continue reading “Sculpting a Mini Lemon Bundt”

Little Pretties

Warning…in the event you go reeling at the colour pink, there is lots of it coming up…… My favourite miniatures to make are sweets.

My Autumn Miniatures
