Miniature Monday

Today I am going to share the tea room itself with you and the owner of the shop and rooms above. This, like last week's post, is photo heavy again!
Both ladies here were bought dolls which I dressed. I also made the tablecloths. The furniture was all bought at the Dolls House and Miniatures Fair that I used to go to in Southend every year. It was very conveniently held on the weekend of my birthday!
I loved playing with Fimo to create food. I had a great book by a lady whose first name was Angie, but I cannot remember her last name. I made all the food in the tea room.
I tried to remove the dust before taking these photos, but it was very difficult to shift!
The pattern on the tablecloths was sketched on and then I stitched along the lines and then stitched the lace onto the bottom.
More yummy cakes! Makes me hungry looking at them!
The telephone under the stairs - obviously a very well off establishment.
This lady is the owner of the tea rooms and lives in the rooms above. I made all her clothes, but she is bought - my dollmaking skills had not miraculously improved!
I even made her underwear and shoes!
This lady is again purchased, but I made her clothes. She is the one and only customer in the shop.
A close up of buttons and trim on her blouse. I had several books of 1:12 scale Edwardian and Victorian dollshouse clothes. I have kept quite a few, but they are currently up in the loft!

Well, that is all for today.  Next week I hope to show you the bedroom - I am going to see Take That on Friday and staying at my sister's - had I mentioned?! I am only a little bit excited!

The food is amazing - so very realistic! But I think I love the clothes best of all. I really enjoy dressing dolls!

And of course again I'm excited to know that there is still more to come

The food looks amazing. As usual I am stunned by the level of detail you manage to get in. Love the work you did on the clothes & tableclothes too.
