Miniature Projects

Garden Pride


The Dolls’ House Magazine
Issue 52 October 2002

Sorry to cause confusion with the name as I have since married and yes, the picture on the cover really is me.

This is the first project I did for the Dolls’ House Magazine way back in my youth. I read an article in the magazine showing, I believe, a room box and asking ‘Could you do this?’ They were looking for project makers. My response was, ‘well of course I can’, and I’ve never looked back.

I started out with the bird table and bench @ 1/12 scale and then had to build a patio for them to go on. Then I got a bit carried away and this was the result.

My creations are made from recycled or repurposed materials. I was once likened to ‘Blue Peter’ but I would like to think that my models have a little more finesse than ‘Tracey Island’ or the advent ring!

There is a comment in the article, and I quote: “The curving brick path, hurdle fencing, rose arch and colourful border is worthy of a garden at the Chelsea Flower Show”.
Well who knows, maybe one day I might get there with a full sized version!

Thank you to the www.craftsinstitute.co.uk and the www.thegmcgroup.com for allowing me to show their images.
