Purchased the butterfly botanical to go with the lavender not realizing they were slightly different in size so I went back and got the blueberry so it would look intentional ! HAHA. Wonderful aged patina on these botanicals.

Lavande House Miniatures
Lavande House Miniatures, formerly A LavenderDilly Miniatures is my creative outlet. I am a miniature artist and I make decorative home wares in miniature, both my own original designs and reproductions of vintage and modern classics for ceramic pieces. Everything here I have made from scratch or made over in some way.
♥♥ Welcome to my Etsy Shop!
My name is Carrie Lavender and I live in the beautiful Bellinger Valley, Australia!!
I discovered miniatures quite by accident when I was asked to use my crafty ways to refurbish a dollhouse. Thought I would try selling some of the plates I had made here on Etsy way back in June 2011 and within 24 hrs I had my first sale and I have been going ever since!. I strive to make my miniatures as realistic as possible and especially love achieving an aged worn look. All my items are handmade by me. With my ceramic pieces I will make reproductions of already known designs, make designs using their components or will make completely new designs of my own. The ceramics are all decorated by hand and it can be at times quite a long process but always enjoyable!
Some of my items are made to order.
I have been featured in the UK Doll's House Magazine Oct 2016 issue.
You can find more of my work via my blog: http://alavenderdilly.blogspot.com.au/
Kindest regards and warmest of wishes,
Carrie Lavender ♥♥

** Christmas period means there will be a substantial slow down in shipping times. Purchasing tracking will mean a faster delivery time. It must be purchased during checkout.
~ Below in COST GUIDE PER REGION you can more accurately predict the cost of shipping.
~ My responsibilty for shipped orders ends once I hand it over to Australia Post and other shipping services. I am not responsible for tracking or finding parcels once shipped unless you have purchased tracking but I am only able then to help in contacting Australia Post.
~ Etsy do now charge a fee on shipping costs.
~ The shopping cart system will not combine shipping costs. I must do this after your order is placed and filled out. Once I know the cost of shipping required I then will refund you any difference over $1.50. So the cost of shipping will often appear to be a larger sum but you will be refunded all cost overages.
~TRACKING IS NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY. IT MUST BE PURCHASED DURING CHECKOUT. I do not refund orders that have no tracking and claimed to have not been delivered. I take photos of stamped packaging which when used in a case dispute will act as evidence of being shipped.
~ Also please note that these costs are a guide only, depending on combinations of items ordered.
I quote up to 7 buisness days processing time. But usually a simple order can be out in 3-4 days.
