Not All Minis Live in Dollhouses

Just because you don't have a dollhouse, doesn't mean you cannot start a
miniature collection.  I still ~ yes still, have not completed my dollhouse.
In fact, just the other day my hubby suggested that perhaps I start with an
easier model to get started on dollhouse construction.  I think he made a 
very good point.  I seem to be mini builder challenged.

This little Bar Harbor chair and side table used to be in the shabby
chic mini living room.  However, I recently purchased a new chair for
that room, so I decided to put the sweet rocker on one of the shelves
on my little sewing supply cabinet.

Do you see it there on the second shelf?   The table has a porcelain basket 
full of tiny spools of thread, so it's quite happy in it's new spot I think :-)
(Refer to the first pic)

I found this little desk on eBay and instantly fell in love with the color.
It's a vintage piece, and as is so often the case with vintage minis, it is
not truly 1:12 scale and is a tad smaller.  No matter.  I love it on it's own ....

and on this shelf in the guest room.  I think it adds a bit of whimsey to an otherwise
sophisticated space.

The Bar Harbor rocker was replaced by this new pink gingham wing chair.
I have a new coffee table and a new puppy named McDuff too.

I am crazy about that little thatched cottage tea pot!

Check out McDuff.  The little ham wants to be in all the pics :-)

So, as you can see, the miniatures have a couple of shelves in this 
bookcase.  Miniatures are addictive, and you don't have to own a 
dollhouse to enjoy them!

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. Hi Susan, I enjoy your blog, but don't normally comment. I'm wondering if you've ever considered buying a house already built? I bought mine from Real Good Toys. It came ready for me to wallpaper (that I purchased separately), and it included windows, doors, crown mouldings, base mouldings, and the staircase. All of that was cut to fit, but I had to install it. I just "finished" mine, and would be happy to send you pics so you can see better what I'm talking about. I absolutely didn't have the talent, or patience, to start with a kit.

    1. Oh my goodness ... I just checked the site and the prices are STEEP! Maybe not a good option after all. Mine was less than $400.

  2. It's wonderful your infos. Thank you very muchbloom tattoos

  3. What cute displays - I like the use of minis in decorating, they seem to add just the right touch. I adore the pink striped wallpaper.


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
