The 35th Annual Fall Show: Thank you DMMDT!!!

The Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys just held their 35th Annual Fall Show last weekend.

And we were there!

We brought lots of new stuff that folks hadn't seen before.

16 feet of stuff! We've never had that much table space before, and it was GREAT!!

We really tried to focus on handmade stuff this time around.

And it went quite well.

We premiered our new printed books (made just for us by Midnight in the Dollhouse) and they were a huge hit!

We also brought out our "crazy bird marionette" puppets, which were also a huge hit.

The turn out was great. We saw a lot of new faces, and a lot of our regular customers too.

There were so many wonderful things to see, I don't know how anyone could've seen it all. 

It was a great show! Many thanks to the DMMDT (Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys) for putting on another wonderful miniatures show. We're looking forward to doing it again next year! And we hope to see you there!

Customer Jon's Amazing Schoolroom

(If you click on the photos it makes them larger, and you're probably going to want to, because the detail in this is exquisite! - Wendy)

A couple days ago, one of our customers (a super spiffy gentleman named Jon) brought in a roombox he'd done to share with us.

Most everything in this school room was made by hand, by Jon himself.

We think it's just amazing.

He had just put the finishing touches on it that morning.

But the entire project took him about a year.

Meticulous and amazing work, Jon! Thank you for letting us take pictures and share your project with our readers! Absolutely gorgeous!!

And we hope you enjoyed looking at it! What are YOU working on over this long weekend? Any miniature projects? Hope you have a great weekend, no matter what you're doing! :)

Marilyn's Dollhouse Part 1: Delivery Day!

(Click on any of the pictures to make them bigger!) 

Sunday, July 13th, we delivered a dollhouse to a lovely lady named Marilyn! It just BARELY fit in the pickup truck.

We started on the house way back in October. This is how it looked when it came to us. 

 And this is what it looked on delivery day!

I took more detailed pictures of each room, and I'll post those in the next entry!

I hope Marilyn is enjoying her house as much as we enjoyed working on it. It was an honor. :)
