Right!! Time to restart life - on my terms!

Hello again! I feel I have been absent from blogging, and the miniature world in general, for far too long.  My miniature creations have been on hold while work was being done in our home and then five weeks ago the rug was pulled from under us again when my mother-in-law passed away unexpectedly.  My eldest son also started university last week and it is certainly an adjustment not having him at home!  At the start of this year I felt that changes were afoot and how true that was, just not the changes I was hoping for!  However for my sanity I need to get back to creating. Anything!!!  I just need that quiet time in my own little world to recharge so.........

I had a trawl through my current works-in-progress and decided to discard anything that just wasn't doing it for me.  So the Orchid dolls house has gone although I removed all the work done so far and will rehouse items in a different project.  The jury is still out on my big dolls house, The Laurels.  Sometimes I love it and at other times I can't stand looking at it!  I also have a dolls house-in-waiting which calls quietly to me in the night so I will try to reorganise the RL house to make room for that!

But to rekindle my mini-mojo I thought I would start small and have just bought a 144th scale kit from Petite Properties!  Here it is - well, here are the components of the kit - they're tiny!!!

I feel some 'me-time' is due so I'll drop by in a couple of days with an update.  Send me your mini-mojo vibes to keep me on track! Take care until next time x


  1. The house is so tiny! Good luck with the assembly. I'm curious to see it done. :)

  2. Welcome back! Sorry to hear about your MIL. =(
    Looking forward to how this tiny house turns out!

  3. I know how you feel! My last child has left to go to uni and I am having a grand mini sort out as a way of bonding!!!
