About this title


All miniaturists will agree that no dolls' house is complete without being decorated and furnished in its period style, and no house becomes a home until all the finishing touches have been added. This book explains how to design and create these embellishments in 1/12th scale using inexpensive materials and basic craft skills. Step-by-step instructions are provided for over 300 projects, from everyday household items such as crockery, cleaning equipment, kitchenware and food, to toys, board games and floral arrangements. The finished pieces are pictured in furnished room sets providing added inspiration for the creative miniaturist and revealing the lifestyle of the dolls who inhabit this world. Traditional teddy bears and wooden trains keep the infant of an Edwardian house entertained, while cricket bats, various-shaped balls and posters of sporting heroes litter a boarding school dormitory. Other periods and styles covered include a modern tiled bathroom, an explorer in his Victorian town house, a sumptuous Georgian dining room prepared for a banquet, an artist taking a painting class in his Parisian attic, and a 1950s children's party. With full colour photographs, clear text instructions, templates and comprehensive material and suppliers listings, this book cannot fail to inspire all dolls' house owners who wish to bring their finished models to life.

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
