About

My interest in dolls houses and miniatures started about 10 years ago, and as many of you will know it becomes addictive. I have gradually increased my skills in many areas and like to handmake as much as possible for my own projects.

I particularly enjoy making ladies accessories including hats, corsets, handbags etc and found myself making far more then I could ever use! Friends persuaded me that my work was of a good enough standard to sell, and I have had success selling through other outlets such as ebay (100% positive feedback) and was delighted at the positive and complimentary comments I received. Recently I have been very flattered to have been featured in two additions of The Dolls' House Magazine as a talented maker.

Many of the items I offer for sale have been completely handmade to my own designs, I also like to "up-cycle" items such as furniture, putting my own finishes and styling to pieces, giving them an individual look. I draw my inspiration from a wide variety of sources and love to browse period fashions and interior designs, to try and accurately reflect the styles in the miniature world.

I have always enjoyed interior decorating and crafts, including flower arranging, jewellery making, and many types of needlework and discovering miniatures has enabled me combine all my interests into a small space.
