A lot of you know I have a love for dollhouse miniatures, not so much dolls… unless it is weird doll art  (I bit the noses off my barbies!) but the love for the miniature furniture, houses and decor.  I think I  was upcycling long before upcycling was cool or doing faux finishes before those were a fad!  My first mini was of a lamp made out of a toothpaste cap.  The hanging flower pots were made by pressing Fimo clay inside my husband’s contact lens case! This is my 1:12 scale Victorian dollhouse made from the Beacon Hill Greenleaf kit.  To see the interior just click on the links below:
