Miniature Monday

This is a room box I did for Hugh for his birthday quite a few years ago. He was away on business at the time in South Africa, so I did it all secretly. I used a wine box and printed out the wallpaper from an online dollshouse site. I based it on his bedroom as a child and so of course had to include a train set! I knitted the teddy and stitched the sheet, pillowcase and eiderdown. I mae the rag rug infront of the fire and scanned in some of his train photos and childhood books to use. This one is again lit and you can see the lampshade hanging from the ceiling.

The farm was made from model railway scenery animals, which I thought was apt as Hugh is so into his model railway! I love this one as there is so much in the room - a typical child's bedroom!

I love the little cricket bat propped up in the corner. Actually, I love all of it, of course I do! I actually got up this morning wondering if you had posted another Miniature Monday!
