I Work as Little as Possible

That's the motto of NAME - National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts (click here to find out more).

Our local chapter/club, Metro Mini Makers hosted a show a few weeks ago. My BFF, Barb, and I went to the show and were immediately smitten by the small stuff. I purchased a sewing box that required some gluing and assembly:

 It's kind of cute, isn't it?

Here are some of the displays we saw -

A lovely house with a wrap around front porch

A Fairy Garden

A display of rugs and pictures stitched on 28 Ct linens

And a beautiful water garden

Hmmmm…..is there a miniature room I need to design coming in my future??? Watch this space….


  1. Those are all so sweet! Love your little sewing box :)

  2. I love miniartures! Your little sewing box is adorable. My favorite is that fairy garden! What an imagination.

  3. Great job! Yes, it is cute and neat!

  4. Oh how tiny! The little sewing box is so cute though at first I did think it was slices of a walnut hull, LOL! Love the idea of the fairy garden. I was never much one for dollhouses, preferring to play with animals and dirt instead haha. :D

  5. Hello Kim.

    I do love the fairy garden, good luck with the box making. I do wonder what else you have purchased. Can't wait to see.

    Happy days.

  6. What gorgeous miniatures, Kim. I love the fairy garden.

  7. I love the Fairy Garden and the sewing box is adorable!

  8. Oh so beautiful especially the display of rugs and pictures! I see a tiny embroidered piece coming out of that tiny sewing box you purchased!Ariadne from Greece!

  9. Oh Kim!! I love miniatures...I built my first dollhouse (from a kit) when I was about 13. I had asked for a dollhouse for YEARS, and my dad's answer was finally, "build it yourself!" So I did!! I haven't done any mini stuff in quite a while, but I do still love them. My daughter is 5 now, and maybe someday soon she'll be old enough to handle delicate things while still young enough at heart to be fascinated by their tininess.... :) Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  10. Look at that teeny tiny box! I would have gotten so frustrated trying to put it together. Good job! :D

  11. Oh, oh, oh, I love all of these miniatures - so beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  12. I just love miniatures including dolls houses and model railway layouts! The tiny work is is adorable.

    I went to a couple of local dolls house exhibitions and met a lady stitching Old Masters on 50 count gauze.

    Love the Fairy Garden idea too.
