Fantastic Food

If your dolls are hungry and you want the best miniature food you have to visit Betsy Niederer Miniatures and sample her miniature treats. She has created some of the tastiest looking miniature food I have ever seen.

There are fruits, cakes, pastries and complete food boards. Betsy’s items are made from polymer clay; coloured and textured to look incredibly real. Breads, cakes, pastries, and anything chocolate are her favourite subjects, but she can make just about anything edible in miniature.

Some items are for sale and the site is also a real inspiration if you want to create your own miniatures.

Amazing Ebay Miniatures

Often the best place to find really amazing miniatures is on Ebay. Many artisans sell their creations there and you can also find old miniatures that have been hidden away in attics for years. Here are a few I came across.

Miniature 'Home Tweet Home' Birdhouse: Check out this sellers other items too, they are very detailed!

Unique Room Box: If you are planning on building a French style room box this is very unique.

Miniature Baby: I love this baby, she is only 2 inches big and is so cute.

I have never seen anything quite like these miniatures before. They are not miniatures you could really put in a dolls house but are so unique and show how we can incorporate a bit of the unusual into our miniature creations. -------------------------------------------------------
