Magical Miniatures

If you love all things magical and miniature you are in the right place.

About me and my blog

I am a mother of three and work on a market stall. In my free time I love to make magical miniatures. It all started with my gran who spent hours when I was a child teaching me how to make do. This entailed mending and fixing and making things from scratch. My dolls house consisted of cardboard boxes with windows cut out, beautifully decorated and all furniture hand made. We sat for hours making clothes and accessories for my dolls to the envy of my friends that all had the same generic stuff. So thanks gran for the inspiration. I hope you enjoy my art and my blog. Thanks for visiting.

T light jar

I decided to do a t light jar. I designed a picture, then drew it again at the size I actually wanted! Then traced it roughly onto the glass. I have got as far as my first few coats of enamel paint.
Once dry ill add all the detail and paint the whole jar except the window dark blue.
I didn't use glass paint as I only want the light to come through the pains of glass and not the picture pieces. 


  1. how clever! I love this idea and I think it is beautiful so far ♥

  2. Thanks Kim. I just need to leave it alone until this bit is dry! That's the hardest part. Lol x
