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.

Small castle

I decided I wanted to make a castle so i've started to shape it out using balsa wood. It is 18 cm wide by 10 cm high.  Once the turrets go on it will be taller.
I have still to add the two side walls but im waiting for glue to dry. 









Treasure box

I have made this treasure box from balsa wood, material, paint and gems. Its just under 1 inch wide, just under 1 inch high and is 0.5 inch deep.
