After publishing my last post, I realised that I forgot to show you the photo's of my creation of my daughter's house.   I made this from scratch, it looks just like her home.  The colours are the same but I didn't have the right material to replicate the wrought iron lace-work on the verandah.

I found the lady sitting in her rocking chair and told my daughter that it could be her in the future! 
 She has two cats and no dogs but I think the dogs look very much at home here. I also love the rubber boots, they feel soft and realistic.

There isn't a wicker planter and plants either but when making mini's, we can surely have some say in how we want it to look can't we?

The grey front step is there, it's a huge piece of blue-stone worn down by many years of feet stepping on it.
She does have climbing roses twining around the posts, beautiful when they're in flower.

One day I will make better plants and flowers for the garden beds but for now it's fine. I loved making the wicker planter and plants, I usually make them with masking tape and fine wire then hand paint them.

Take care,



  1. Es una preciosa y tierna escena, seguro que tu hija esta muy feliz con ella.
    Solo tiene que mirar a esa encantadora abuela, para darse cuenta de lo feliz que sera cuando ella sea mayor.

  2. Thank-you Ascension for your kind comments. My daughter was very happy to see her sweet house made in miniature size.
    Hugs, Vicki.

  3. How nice to make a mini of your daughter's house Vicki! And what a lovely house it is too, full of character and tradition. I love it. Hugs, Sandie
