Last weekend I visited the 26th Sydney Miniatures and Dolls’ House Fair. Miniature enthusiasts display their creations and traders sell their wares. So typically doll houses are built, furnished and displayed as are room boxes and shops. But this year, tea cups and biscuits tins were decked out as well! Go on make yourself a cuppa and grab a biscuit or two. Sit back and marvel at these terrific tiny treasures.
A tea party in a tea cup – cake, cup cakes, teapot, tea cup and serving tray.
An array of tea cups – faries, secret gardens, cherubs and a front porch.
More cups – mice in their pumpkin home, snow scene and the beach sea shore.
Anzac biscuit tins.
Welcome home celebrations – streamers, cake, man’s best friend and a cuckoo clock
And a store for those fabric fans.
A close up of that hexie masterpiece.
And quilt. Can you see the iron and spools of threads?
A little girl’s dream closet, knitted dresses, handbags, shoes and hats.
That crochet throw and cushion ♥
Love this throw and beaded bag.
And for the foodie fans. Baguettes, loaves, cakes, meringues and cat face cupcakes.
Coffee beans from all over the world. Can you see the dispensers?
Some fine drops.
Irresistible outhouse. It’s owner and chooks.
Taking a break from his vegie patch.
An art museum. Circular, 3 levels and floor to ceiling ‘glass’.
Mysteries of Egypt.
Tiny really does equal cute.
These are incredible – such attention to detail. I’d love to have a go at miniature crochet. What a brilliant modern take on the traditional dolls house!
They sure are Sheila. Yes although there were traditional dolls’ houses exhibited I gravitate to take photos of the modern or ‘outside of the box’ interpretations of miniatures. I would love to see when you try miniature crochet. This is the closest I came to it http://wp.me/p1o9gc-6G
Wow, those are the tiniest stitches I have ever seen!
