Dollhouse Scale Miniatures: Facts and Fancies


Interesting article over at Etsy, Dollhouse Scale Miniatures: Facts and Fancies. They give an overview of the miniatures art form from historical to modern times. Also some beautiful photos, including some of the Thorne rooms and The Dollhouse Castle by Elaine Diehl pictured here (currently on loan to the Nassau County Museum of Art on Long Island, New York.)

I have seen Elaine Diehl's castle. It used to reside here in Arizona when she had her shop in Sedona. It is even more impressive in person than on the website.

Grace, I love your webpages and visit quite often.

Thank you, Casey, I hope you keep coming back! You are so lucky to have seen that castle in person, it must be amazing.

I just love castles, ever since I was a kid I've loved Colleen Moore's fairy castle, here's a link to it for all you readers out there:

About Me

TreeFeathers
Griffins, traditionally, are Guardians. Often carved at temple doors in ancient times, they were said to guard the way to Wisdom. I, on the other hand, seem to be the Guardian primarily of odd bits of string, pinecones, scraps of paper, mismatched socks, old calendars, homeless imps and gnomes, pencils with no erasers, jokes nobody gets, forgotten gods, keys with no locks, and other people’s lighters. If any of these things might be of use to you, let me know.
