Having shared my teapot with you on a Wednesday, I thought that I would make Monday's miniature for a few weeks and share some of my other miniature creations.
As I mentioned, one of my room boxes is 'Australia Museum'. We visited Australia in 2002 and I decided before I went that I would like to make a miniature record of our visit by creating my own museum. I bought a lovely little shop/single room house which I turned into my museum.
Whilst we were in Australia I looked out for tiny souvenirs, which I found in the way of key rings and pencil toppers and sharpeners. Hugh made me the display cabinets and the literature stand. I scanned in loads of the fliers etc that I had collected and shrunk them down, printed them out and then put them in the literature stand. The doll was purchased made, but I wigged her and then dressed her (she is supposed to be me!). I also made her a back pack, which is what I carried all the time, and it has a water bottle in it and my camera. I was really pleased when I had finished it and stood my Aborigine outside. I am sorry about the quality of the photos - they are scanned in and not brilliant! I do still have this out on display, but it is on top of my sideboard and difficult to get down to photograph again!
