The Illusion Of Lunch In Miniature!

A trip round a doll house or miniature scene is like the most wonderful of magic shows, the illusion of feeling as if we've been shrunk into a tiny world and seeing all these things around us which so perfectly replicate either the world in which we live or, perhaps, a world in which we dream of living! That's why we couldn't wait to share these new photographs of that English favorite, the Ploughmans Lunch, which is now available in our online store. The chutney, the cheese and oh, those tiny cherry tomatoes, all making the eye wonder for just a second...could it be the real thing in fairy size? The photograph with the penny makes us wish it were and we really were that small and could just sit down on a sunny day and enjoy a bite of English culture!

Summer weddings can last all year long in miniature!! This 4 Tier Cheese Wedding Cake, just added to our online store, takes a snapshot of that special day and keeps it in 3D magic as the centerpiece of  any 1:12th scale wedding!

Seeing Stars!

When creating the Magic Of Spring Garden Logs and thinking about how all the details and hidden places were an adventure and a place of discovery just like the mystery books youngsters used to (& hopefully still do!) read it occured to us that there is, of course, something that those adventures were never complete without - a midnight feast!! These 4 Midnight Stars Cake Slices, with their fluffy sponge, encapsulate those midnight feasts so perfectly and indeed also the land of the midnight sun and blue skies that we live amongst in the Summer here on the Isle of Skye!

Living Under A Miniature Rock!

This gorgeous rock straight from the magic of nature in miniature began life as a single sentence - "Living Under A Rock"! With ladybugs crawling across the "stone" and a tiny little mouse scurrying away into the wee hole the phrase truly does come to life and it is a joy to have finally added it to our online store! Another new addition is this delicious looking Almond & Pistachio Pretzel which just calls out for someone to dive into the miniature kitchen!

Magic Of Spring Garden Logs!

Creating a miniature with so much detail can take you on an amazing journey without ever leaving your seat! Whether it be watching as the texture of the "wood" comes alive or adding the tiny details such as the down in the nest it's like discovering a miniature world within a miniature world! Whether by the dollhouse front door or in the miniature garden there are so many places where these Magic Of Spring Garden Logs could cast their spell!!

In addition to our Food Gallery on CDHM we also now have a Gallery in Indoors Out so if you love nature in miniature that's the place to watch!
