I was so happy to be able to attend the show. I’m always amazed and in awe of the artistry I see. But first, an explanation. There are different scales for dollhouse miniatures. My favorite is 1:12 scale (one-inch scale). That means that one inch in miniature equals twelve inches (one foot) in real life.

There were thousands of miniatures displayed. I always asked for permission before photographing, and the sellers graciously permitted it. I also included links if you want to go deeper into this world. So…on with the show!

Above is the beautifully crafted pool table with surrounding details, from Keenderson Miniatures.

Next, a bit of advice. Eat before attending the show. See below for the visual explanation from Twinheart Miniatures:

Food is BIG in miniature. (You know what I mean.) And lighting is important, as Erik Goddard shows:

I spoke with a number of miniaturists and they agreed with me—miniatures allow us to enter a time and place we can’t get to. So, first I approached this scene, from Hephaestra:

Then I got closer and for those brief moments, immersed myself in it.

You didn’t think I escaped without buying something, did you? I was determined not to but when I saw this umbrella (from the Tiny Doll House), there was no way I wasn’t buying it. No, it doesn’t talk, at least, it hasn’t talked to me, but one never knows, right?

That’s all for this week!
