biscuits and tea cups

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.
