So you know how my long-term doll's house project is furnishing a Victorian pub, right? I may have mentioned it! Anyway, when this amazing pub by talented miniaturist Emma Metcalfe appeared on the Dolls House Emporium's Facebook page last week, having won third prize (third?!) in their Creative Competition last year, I just knew I had to show you. I want you to see the kind of amazing work that got me into miniatures in the first place.
It's the quirky, personal touches. The way Emma has created something that we would never get to experience in the modern world. I was blown away by her creation.
Emma also won the competition in 2011 with her Welsh nineteenth century cottage. I also adored this project. I really like Emma's use of Welsh slate, something I have incorporated into my doll's house to honour my own link with the Snowdonia area, having visited my grandparents there all my life.
If you could create any scene in miniature, from any time period, what would you choose? This is one hobby I don't think I'll ever fall out of love with.
